I know these days there are fewer flights serving meals in the main cabin. Among the crews and the FQ flyers. What stands out as exceptional.
For me the Lamb chops. I have yet to see even the worst galley mess them up. After that I like the Risotto with goat cheese, grilled shrimp and scallops.

Isn't there a law that says you can't call yourself Texas based without serving DP?

I recently took a couple of trips in AA economy, and have very mixed feelings about the food.

Most notably, on a JFK-LHR round trip, I found the dinner offerings (both were evening flights) appalling. I think the outbound was supposed to be steak, but on the return I asked for a tray sans entree---and the F/A who served me, nodding grimly, didn't seem the least bit surprised. I don't mean to bash AA food across the board,but these dinners were as bad as any joke-inspiring airline food I've come across over the years. No lamb chops or risotto here, that's for sure! The sides weren't a whole lot better: soggy salad, and cloying dessert with too much icing, as usual. I subsisted on cheese, crackers, and the standard-issue rock-hard roll.

The pre-arrival snacks, on the other hand, were quite good. The breakfast on the outbound had a pastry and yogurt, which I always like (it's hard to mess up!), and the pizza on the return, though hardly award-winning, was perfectly edible.

My other trip was LGA-ORD-ABQ-STL-LGA, so no food service at all. However, I really like the cheddar snack mix. I'm not a fan of peanuts, and pretzels get boring after a while, so I always look forward to that stuff.

Frankly, I'd rather have a couple of bags of snack mix and bring my own sandwich (or be served a box of cereal, yogurt, mini-pizza, or other tasty snack) than see AA wasting money on crappy food like the stuff I was served on the London flights or those Bistro Bags (are those still around?). I know people expect to be fed a real meal on 7-hour flights, but as far as I'm concerned, there comes a point where serving bad food is worse than nothing at all.

On a final note, I like how AA gives a choice of Coke and Pepsi, but I MISS DR. PEPPER! It was a dark day when, post-9/11, I asked for my favorite beverage---which I could always count on when flying AA---only to be told by the sympathetic F/A that it was no longer.

I would add the dropping of Shiner Bock beer to the list of food/beverage mistakes. It seems to me to be easy enough to cater it on flights from DFW. yeah, how can you call yourself a Texas based airline and not carry Shiner????

Heck, its' even in the grocery stores here in California.

Agreed. The first time I ever did a voluntary bump was back in college returning home to SAN. The F class served up the cookies and you could hear the folks back in steerage climbing up the curtains trying to get some of them!

And finally, this is the international coach meal served from Miami to Caracas.

These inspiring selections were created by the world renowned chefs employed by AA, to help draw the distinction between AA and those low cost outfits.[img src='http://www.usaviation.com/idealbb/images/smilies/9.gif'] [img src='http://www.usaviation.com/idealbb/images/smilies/9.gif']
