April Improvements Coming To American Airlines Meal Service

Pre-order meals return for domestic first class (special meals come back next month). Second beverage service on longer coach flights comes back – American had dropped this as a sop to its flight attendants union back in January. Transcon flights get new meal improvements especially.

Nature is healing.

  1. Looks better than preCOVID non premium transcon and almost as good as pre merger

    Great to see – now off my ‘do not book’ list

    Now when will they end the flagship first nonsense of limiting the touchpoints in the name of COVID

  2. AA is coming out of Covid-19 a different airlines. The fleet is far better the pre-covid and service is seeing improvement in the air and on the ground. I think the Kirby hang over is moving to UA and AA will look to be their own model (no they aren’t following DL, they are following their customer feedback now).

    Can’t wait to see what food option/partner they bring to the main cabin. Excited to see AA gaining altitude again.

  3. Preordering and two bev services have been on DL forever, not really this amazing feat by AA here.

    “Modernized look and feel” screams “cost-cutting minimalism in the name of modernity” but we’ll see

  4. I made it through the height of the pandemic on 4 Oz bottles of water and a nice little cookie during my 4 hour flights ✈.
    I’ll be happy with a real Coke and another cookie, thank you very much. I’m fine.

  5. This is much ado about nothing… It’s still airline food.

    Who knew that taking the wrapper off your meal was such a big deal….

  6. AA has improved meal service

    You get a ketchup pack with the on a shingle being served
