First class meal service to Hawaii has thankfully been saved from many of the past airline meal cuts to the domestic product. Hawaiian Airlines has an interesting "sampler" where passengers pick three out of five or seven choices to sample as their main entree. Continental has maintained their BF product to Hawaii. While United and Delta have watered down their product to domestic standards, American Airlines still offers its flagship service (HFS) with the larger salad, sundaes, and Sam Choy-inspired main entrees.

What have your experiences been?

Also, has anyone flown HNL-DFW-HNL on AA lately? I'm interested to know what the second meal service is like on both legs. The first meal (dinner outbound, lunch inbound) will be similar to their LAX and SFO 757 flights, but what about the second service?

Thanks,
Aq737

Also do add, what does AS offer? The last I heard was a buy-on-board. Is that true?

First Class gets hot entree choices for Brunch and Dinner, at least.

According to their website, AS first-class passengers receive "A choice of unique island hot entrées for brunch or dinner, depending upon time of day," apparently complimentary, while for coach-class passengers, "A complimentary Mai Tai or POG is served on flights to Hawaii. In addition to a beverage service, you can purchase one of our Northern Bites meals, some with a special taste of the islands. Northern Bites meals are not offered on overnight ("redeye") flights. A choice of Picnic Packs are offered for purchase on all Hawaii flights."

Unfortunately, I've never been to Hawaii so I can't speak to their meal service. I hope to go someday, though!  Smile

I flew AA back in May on DFW to HNL.. While I got stuck in Y (Upgrades went to all the PLTs), the meals looked quite good for business (similar to the Transcon service multiple courses) while in Y we got BOB... thankfully I brought lunch onboard...


Why do I fly???

does any airline offer meals on y class now? It is shocking to that when I flew on HNL-LAX on Y there was no meal offered.

EPAEAA,
Thank you for your input. I haven't flown the DFW route recently and was wondering what the second meal service is. The first one is their HFS (Hawaii Flagship Service) which seems to be a hybird og AFS and regular domestic (larger salad, individual served as well as sundae but no appetizer).

Does anyone have recent F experience on the DFW flight from/to HNL or OGG?

Planetime,
HA still serves meals on all flights. They also offer the option of an upgraded meal for $10 although I'm not sure what is included in the upgraded meal. The meal offered depends on time of day.

CO offers a "meal" although this usually consists of just a sandwich in a box - more of a snack than a meal.

All other carriers do BOB.

On DL, ATL-HNL still has a meal offered in Y.

If there's no meal service on transcontinental routes, then I wouldn't expect West Coast-Honolulu flights to have complimentary meal service.

Yes, on AA outbound DFW-HNL - in front the cabin 763 (Biz branded as FC domestically) you get - pre-flight champange service, then after take off - warm nuts/drink service, menus passed with two lunch entree choices, hot towels, take dinner orders, then individual salad service, entree choice served (usually individually - depends on Puser orders) , Wine service, dessert cart with usual AA of sundaes with choice of assorted toppings or fruit and cheese plate. Continuous drink service, of course. Pre-arrival snack of crackers, fruit/cheese plate.

Inbound HNL-DFW - All the same, except it is a "Dinner Menu". And a pre-arrival "continental breakfast" - which is really small. Usually, a muffin, juice, coffee service.
