Grapes, drenched waffles, and those sweet lemon wafers. I think I desperately missed a savory piece on that plate.

I think if the syrup was on the side instead of pre-drenched into the waffle it would be much better. They give us the sauce on the side for other dishes, curious why it isn't on the side for this one too.

“Lunch” on DEN-IAH
That looks like the Denver meals couple years ago when they had issues with the catering kitchen.

DEN strikes again!

Ugh, looks awfully close to the (pre-pandemic) service I got on LEX-ORD.

SFO-HNL-SFO


SFO-HNL Choice was described as egg white kale pastry or french toast. Ended up being the old egg white bites which is fine but extremely boring since it’s the same meal for the last couple months.


HNL-SFO 1k sitting in the last row and was not given the meat choice. Only vegetarian left was described as cauliflower croquette. Orzo was alright, croquette was not my thing. Usually the Hawaii meat choice of katsu is much preferred IMO. Guava sponge cake was pretty good though.

Instead of a bowl of grapes, now they give you a bowl of dried grapes?

Flew UAX IAH to CLT and back. No PDBs either way. Recline boxes both ways. Friday given minis & cans to make your own cocktail in plastic cup. Sunday served mixed drinks in glasses!

DEN-IAD today. Snack box. PDB was water only.
Flight time 0945-1458. Aren't we supposed to get a hot breakfast now? Haven't been paying attention.

Why did you not insist on your first choice as a 1K? I highly doubt everyone else in the cabin was a 1K or GS

One person who likes the katsu - my friend thought it was awful recently and the consensus on here agrees.

Well, to be fair, it's ...

There's really no excuse for this as a persistent problem.

As always, one must judge among the choices available. I found the pre-pandemic katsu to be often better than the other choices, although I haven't seen it in the last 18 months - hopefully it hasn't deteriorated that much...
