YYC to PHX First Class Meal

We are sitting in first class from YYC to PHX. The flight has a time of 3:28 hours, so just under the 3.5 hours that is listed on the US Airways website for serving a meal. Does anyone know if a meal wille served or does the 2 minutes short mean no meal?

Thanks

No meal, just the snack basket. If you have a priority pass or platinum amex, check out the Rocky Mountain Lounge in the transborder concourse. They usually have a good spread of food that would be better than any airline meal.

Agreed. No meal and yes the Rocky mountain lounge is great!

They likely timed it at 3:28 instead of 3:30 deliberately to avoid catering the flight.

No true, US has some flights that are under 3.5hr and serves a meal, just depends on the competetion on that route.

At least there's an F. It wasn't too long ago that route was nearly 4 hours on a Mesa Air CRJ.

Agree... DFW-PHL is below 3.5 and meal is served. Thank you AA for competing with US on this route (until the merge....)

I remember flying DFW-CLT - about three years ago in F and got a full meal (thank you AA competition!). Sadly, I've started flying this more often here in 2012 and there has been no more meals in F.
