In advance this yr American made the only largest development to their household catering that they’ve made in somewhat a whilst. Or so I assumed.
In particular, they now permit you to order unique foods on any flight the place a meal is served, together with household first-class flights. That is nice information as a result of American’s conventional household catering leaves so much to be preferred, and up till just lately I most effective had just right reports with American’s Asian Vegetarian foods (that have the code “AVML”). That is virtually all the time a few kind of Indian meals, which I really like each as it’s fitter, and in addition as it normally tastes higher (normally Indian meals reheats smartly).
As an example, right here’s an Asian Vegetarian meal I’ve been served on a flight from New York to Los Angeles:
And right here’s the Asian Vegetarian meal I’ve been served on a flight from London to Los Angeles:
I’ve virtually solely gotten jealous seems from different passengers and feedback from flight attendants approximately how just right the meals seems while ordering those foods.
The previous day on an American transcon flight out of Los Angeles I ordered my same old meal, and used to be served the next:
By no means sooner than have I appeared so longingly on the foods folks have been being served on an American Airways flight. For reference, American describes Asian Vegetarian foods as being “highly spiced vegetarian foods with restricted use of dairy merchandise.”
What used to be I served? An appetizer of celery sticks and chips (significantly?!?), the plainest salad conceivable, a troublesome, packaged bread roll, and a major direction along with broccoli, carrots, and rice, without a sauce or taste in any way. Then for dessert there used to be a small fruit plate.
I’m now not positive if this used to be a catering glitch (this meal used to be the other of “highly spiced”), or if that is simply what Asian Vegetarian foods appear to be LAX. The object I will be able to’t actually recover from is the appetizer of chips and celery sticks. Did they cater this from the Admirals Membership?
So now I’m curious, have I simply been actually fortunate with Asian Vegetarian foods on American up till now, or used to be I in reality unfortunate right here? Now I’m wondering the Asian Vegetarian foods that I’ve reserved going ahead…
