AeroMexico Classe Premier Special Meals

Hi All!
The wife and I purchased a roundtrip in Classe Premier and I noticed that a very potential option is a ham/cheese croissant sandwich as the only meal option on our flights. That is fine for most people, but I have a personal issue with cold cuts (dates back to my childhood) and would much prefer a Special Meal if one were available.

Our flights leave MCO around 3:55PM and returns 1:55PM which are not exactly normal meal times (at least in the USA).

I remember well over 10 years ago now when UA was offering Deli Plates in First Class and I would have to order a special meal to ensure that I did not get one of those Deli Plates.

I searched this forum but that last thread RE: AeroMexico Special Meals dates back to 2015 and back then nobody posted to the thread, so, any insights would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

AM special meals seem to be available on most 3+ hour int'l flights that aren't red-eye flights.

Enjoy!

Has anyone had an experience with said special meals?

While I realize that I am probably in a very very very small minority, my desire is to avoid cold cuts (been unable to eat cold cuts since I was a child) and AeroMexico seems to cater ham/cheese croissants almost as a matter of course.

I did call and request a lacto-ovo vegetarian meal, but I am not holding my hopes up as the person I spoke with on the phone barely understood my request.

According to their website they do. With that said, attempting to order a Special Meal felt extremely difficult and the phone agent had trouble even understanding the request at first she insisted that AeroMexico does not accept Special Meals except for flight to from Europe and South America and then after much back and forth she finally said that even though she felt that it was impossible to do so, she would put in the request for whatever it is worth.

I will be honest, I wouldn't get my hopes up. I fly AM a lot, because it has the routes/schedules that work, and for the most part, their hard product is pretty good. However their service is not very good, and not well geared to non-spanish speakers. And anything that is remotely out of the normal schedule/operating procedure is usually a disaster in terms of service response. I have seen things that leave me just scratching my head from a customer's perspective.
As frustrating as it may be, if eating on the plane is something necessary, you might look to bring something from the terminal on board as a back-up plan.

I've ordered SPMLs on a few segments in the past. It shouldn't be that difficult, and perhaps a HUCA situation when you can't get a competent agent. To the OP, I'd just call back and ask to confirm that the SPML request is in the reservation. (I'm looking at a current res on the AM website with an SPML request and there's no way to view that it actually exists).
