I was very happy at RDU last night. Two choices of soup (one vegetable, one crab chowder), chicken salad, salad, olive/mushroom salad, a cucumber based salad, popcorn, cookies, vegetables with dip. Plus a nice Carolina Blonde Ale on tap to wash it all down.

My wife and I were there yesterday upon return from MUC in J. We were offered a D1 menu card, but we declined to order anything since we were both stuffed from the flight.
Was the food to/from MUC upgraded from before? Flew in Feb and it was terrible (enough that I got apologies compensation from DL and the purser, among others). I don't need a gourmet experience, but the food needs to be edible.

If they would get rid of that disgusting hummus and go back to the old stuff, I would be a happy camper. Love the mushrooms!

I'd just like a reliable return of the cheese for a quick and relatively high protein and high calcium little snack.

Very pleased with the upgrades to the alcoholic options, there's now potable wine in the ORD lounge. Things are definitely moving in the right direction.

I didn't keep the D1 menu, but I remember beef tenderloin and spinach ravioli as some of the options. No complaints from me. With all the courses and the mid-flight cookies, I was kept well-fed.

Yes indeed. Cheese does also go well with wine.

The BOS main terminal SC had the individually wrapped Tillamook cheese slices yesterday. I hope that will come back to MSP soon. I wish I'd taken a few slices with me before ending up on three flights with only the high carb/low protein snack baskets as my dinner.

They have the Tillamook in the D1 entry lounge at LAX. I guess they are not going to keep Tillamook "exclusive" to that.

I'm sure that I found cheese in both of the MSP lounges within the last couple months, although in F/G, it's in the refrigerator under the counter so you must know to look there. In both cases, it was a single variety of the Tillamook, probably medium cheddar, with individual thick slices wrapped in thick plastic. The crackers in the big glass jar were the long flat bread things with very irregular borders on the two long sides. I think there's some black pepper on them.

The tillamook has been in BOS for almost the whole time it was available. BOS seems to have some better stuff than other locations at times.

Thumbs up

MCO had Tillamook last month when I was there last month. It is so much better than the cheese spread.^

...but the advantages to the cheese spread is that it worked as a nice enhancement to the vegetable soup.
