Yes, I received a fantastic meal recently on AF Hop AMS-MRS

Five drink services in 45 minutes?

Meant in European Business as I'm comparing DL first class, not Y.

Yup, in European Business on them and I've flown with them a lot the past few months. My glass was never half-empty.

No FEBO, no PDB, snack basket passed while we were eating our meal, lazy flight crew who spent most of the flight loudly laughing in the galley.
So True that the flight crew can make a lousy meal experience better and totally screw up a good meal experience. Glad my wife learned how to properly serve a meal on Delta 30 years ago - she still does it with Delta style occasionally when I come home from a tough business trip. LOL

Those pics *are* from Euro-biz.

EDIT: departure times were 20:20 and 06:55, so maybe those are outside meal hours or something.

Surprised that you didn't get a proper meal as I had gotten Wanders Boxes or cold plates for all times in the day but they were flights to or from AMS or CDG respectively for Cityhopper or Hop. Also if you re-read what I said originally, I'm saying that the meals (wanders boxes or cold plates) are not that good.

Branded IPA

Got a kick out of this branded Sweetwater IPA on a SAV-BOS flight yesterday. I know they've had Sweetwater 420 for a while but hadn't seen the branded can or the special brew (and it was pretty good!). And it was Comfort+, so free always tastes better

It was introduced back in May 2021.

Does anyone have a recent experience out of CUN they'd be willing to share?

TIA.

You can do a thread search for "CUN". Here is most recent CUN post -- Delta In-Flight Meal/Food Service: The Definitive Thread — 2022 Edition

Generally, if there is a hot meal in one direction, they have them both ways.

Curious if anyone has tried the Spinach and Artichoke Rotolo?

The menu I see for my upcoming SFO-BOS flight (https://pc2c.mydeltamenu.com/SFO-BOS/) has chicken salad, short rib, or the rotolo option
  • Braised Beef Short Rib with red wine demi-glace, polenta, asparagus, roasted tomatoes, and shiitake mushrooms
  • Green Chili Chicken Salad with arugula, black beans, grilled corn, roasted sweet potato, cojita cheese and cilantro lime vinaigrette
  • Spinach and Artichoke Rotolo with Pomodoro sauce
There should be 2 other pre-order options I think, but, the Delta app just loads an empty page when I try to select my entree

Also curious about the dessert: Raspberry Mousse and Almond Genoise Cake with berry coulis - I don't think I've seen photos of that yet!

Today’s breakfast-quiche w/chicken sausage (had a bit of a bite to it, in my opinion). That’s celery, onions, & bell peppers on it. As my seatmate, who got the same thing said, the croissant was the best part.

I haven't had this one yet and I would give it a try......but the damn celery seems weird to me.

I had it a few months back; wasn't a huge fan of it.
