This meal was fantastic. Everything was very tasty and the short rib especially was juicy and very tender. Spectacular job on this one. Good FA too proactively offering refills throughout the meal.

Same options for an ATL - SFO flight coming up. Sounds like Fox Bros BBQ Short Ribs it is!

Fox Bros BBQ Short Ribs or Charred Lamb Chops?

Anyone with any thoughts?

DL1937 SJD-SEA 549pm departure, AUG 1​​​​​Great FA in front and very good meal. She served everyone an open bar PDB. Finally got to try the Tip Top margarita, really enjoyed it. Pre ordered short rib and it tasted great, especially the rice. Meat was very tender. Was hoping for a cheesecake dessert as I've seen in other pics but it ended up being a pound cake of sorts. It was good, moist enough. =) FA passed the snack basket at least 3-4 times during the flight and was always passing down the aisle for Refills.

Overall, MUCH BETTER experience on DL compared to the CUN-SEA flight I did September 2021.

I had the Fox Bros BBQ Short Ribs a few months back ATL-FCO. Really, really good! However I enjoy lamb too, so it would be a tough call.

I've been debating the same for my ATL-CDG flight on Saturday. I've tentatively ordered the lamb, but unsure. I've had the non-Fox short rib on a couple of my last F flights so kinda want to try something different

For what is worth, they have ribs and pulled pork at the Sky Club in ATL recently. Presentation will not be the same but I think they are also labeled Fox Brothers BBQ

For a TATL flight, I'd be tempted to try something that doesn't appear on the domestic FC menu.

If you get the lamb, report back! I'm flying Monday.

My wife and I flew in J, YVR-SEA-LHR, July 7. I believe I pre-selected the beef, and my wife the chicken. Frankly, the meal service on the SEA-LHR segment was underwhelming. Not much better than when we flew in J, last July, ATL-CDG. The only menu handed out showed only the mains, which we already knew! No indication of the other courses, the wine list, or breakfast options. Presentation not much better than economy. Breakfast was also not good, at least not the omelette and turkey sausage option.

Arrival was on time, but we had to wait 2hrs. for our luggage, with NO communication from DL as to when it would arrive! The luggage from a DL SLC arrival was also similarly delayed.

How are you all getting anything different on a domestic flight for F meal choices? Every flight since early June I've only had 1) Impossible Burger, 2) Chicken Salad, 3) S/W Shrimp Salad? Just got my "choose your meal" for a flight to PHX next week, and same options. It's getting kind of ridiculous. I have an AS flight next week, and their options were >>>>>>>>>>Delta's, even for only a 2.5 hour flight.

This was for the SEA-LHR TATL segment, not the YVR-SEA "domestic" segment.

Gotcha, but I thought I saw someone else say they had a ribs option on a domestic leg (ATL-LAS/SFO).

Options for JFK-DUB next week:


Probably going with the branzino but value any others' opinions / experiences etc. (also is the sous vide chicken cold?)
