I find that American doesn’t provision enough food for sale. I’ve heard them blame this on flight attendants not tracking sales and complimentary items properly. Regardless, on Wednesday I was in an exit row (14) and got the last chicken wrap. My seat opponent wanted one and was told none were left. The entire back half of hte cabin was out of luck if they wanted chicken wraps.
American lets coach passengers pre-order meals for purchase up to 24 hours prior to flight. It’s a good idea to pre-order and you aren’t actually billed until to buy on the plane.
