Same entries as business and too far out for specifics.

It is indeed too far out for specifics, as WineCountryUA has replied.

I do not have information on your specific routes on those dates, but I can tell you that you will most likely have a choice of a chicken dish and a vegetarian pasta dish for a relatively short transatlantic flight from the East Coast. Lunch or dinner makes no difference. It's the same meal. Below is a picture of a chicken dinner just for your reference only. You will most likely NOT have the same meal, but hopefully this will give you an idea on what to expect.

Thanks. How about wine service in PP? Is it red or white, or more like J, which I assume has a little variety?

That’s ok. I always have my butler bring a chilled bottle of the 1923 vintage Dom Perignon when flying in economy. 🙂

You’d be surprised what a $100 bill lets you get through the TSA checkpoint.

5,000 posts? Yay me!

The wine is the same plonk as served in the back but the food is a marked improvement on what is served in the back.

No, but you can see example of the business menus in
2024 Let's Eat - Polaris Business
2023 Let’s Eat - Polaris business
LIM should be similar to other S. American Polaris offerings like Brazil, Argentina, Chile

I just want to add that there are typically only two choices offered in Premium Plus, and not the entire Polaris menu. Typically, it is a meat dish (usually chicken) and a pasta dish.

Service is from the same meal cart as the back of the plane. Usually, the flight attendants just pile the Premium Plus food on top of the economy food and have a separate compartment for the special trays with silverwares and wine glasses. They just start from the first row of Premium Plus asking something like "chicken or pasta" and continue their way to the main cabin after the few rows of PP passengers are served.

So, there is no pre-ordering. There is not a flight attendant there to describe the menu and to take orders (unlike some other airlines). Therefore, if you want the best chance of securing your first choice, select a seat closest to the front of the Premium Plus section.
