Hi Everyone,

How would rate the Buy-on-Board products of the US airlines offering it? I'm assuming that most packaged snacks taste the same, so I'm more concerned with the "fresh food" offerings, such as Delta's EATS menu, US, UA, AA, and NW's sandwiches, etc. If there are other airlines, please feel free to include them as well.

To start, I've tried US's barbecue-chicken salad for $7. It came with romaine lettuce, tomato, slices of barbecue chicken, and an oatmeal-raisin cookie (despite saying chocolate chip) and dressing in a container on the side. The portion was pretty small for the price, but overall the quality was very good.

Thanks for your thoughts!

The Delta BOB stuff is pretty good. I'm glad they brought back the hummous. Very over priced though. The AA sandwiches are really good and If I recall they were better priced.

Midwest has always had good BOB. There is often beef and salads available (and a lot of other tasty things), and as far as I know, you can still get them on certain flights operated by RW.

Still better than many of the options on the concourses at some airports, especially early in the morning.

One of my complaints with DL's EATS is that some of their offerings would be a lot better warm. The chicken parm sandwich they offered last Spring was a pretty good sandwich, but would have been even better heated up. Another is that I wish the toppings on the sandwiches (lettuce, tomatoes, etc.) were wrapped separately from the rest of the sandwich. This is something that was a bit of a problem back in the old days of the SkyDeli sacks as well.
