Meal service in F DEN - PHL 11am flight?

Hello all! My husband and I are flying in F DEN - PHL and want to know whether we should bring food on board. USAir states that meals are served on flights over 3.5 hours, ours is 3 hours and 31 minutes. Technically meets the requirements but I know that is no guarantee. Should we expect a meal service or just the snack basket? Thanks in advance!

IIRC, this is a meal service flight, but I haven't flown it recently

Whether a flight has meal service or not is based on the "block time" (i.e. the actual advertised flight length in your reservation - not just time spent in the air.)

As soon as it hits 3:30, it becomes a meal flight.

Easiest way to get answer is to look on the website. Here's what US says:

Flew Yesterday ....Meal Served

Yes a meal is served. Appetizer is flat bread humus and olives. Tasted fresh. Meals were chicken enchilada and pasta meal. Chicken was very filling with the salad and roll. Dessert was excellent, but so was flight attendant Nicole. Didn't have A+b card but she deserved it.
