US Carriers With Complimentary Meals To Hawaii?

We're set to fly to HNL from EWR/LGA/JFK next summer and as far as I know, most US carriers only has BOB even on 10hr+ flights.

I was doing some research and read somewhere that DL does serve complimentary meals in Y on 6hr+ flights, is this true?

I've found this on DL's website:

11:40 / 10:25 SLC-HNL Boeing 767-300 6:45hrs - Meals Available For Purchase
17:30 / 7:50 HNL-ATL AIrbus A330-300 8:20hrs- Dinner

How come the SLC-HNL flight doesn't have complimentary meals? It is over 6hrs. And what kind of "meal" would DL serve on an 8hr domestic flight to ATL?

I mean, I don't mind purchasing BOB but I'm afraid that if we'll fly on UA/CO or US, they might run out of options and 10hrs w/o food would be hell. Though buying some food at the airport is always an option, but there's something special about airline food that I really like (although it might taste bland and awful)

Do you have any personal experience? I know HA still serves some snacks on their flights, anyone can comment on that?

Thanks!


It's a cultural thing.

DL's website says (referring to Y class):

[i]We offer complimentary meal service on most international flights six hours or more, and on select flights to Alaska and Hawaii.

It's not international and apparently not one of the "select" flights to Alaska and Hawaii with meals.

HA does offer complimentary Y meals with a premium BOB offering:

Of course you won't be able to fly HA from your cities unless you connect somewhere to the west coast.

Or you could always pack snacks and food from home. I did this plenty of nights going on red-eye flights across the country. You can have nicer options than most of those around you.

Tchau

DL used to offer free meals in Y-class on MSP, DTW, and ATL to HNL. SLC and the west coast flights are BOB only. DL has since cut MSP/DTW to HNL, but ATL-HNL remains - as does the free meal in Y service. I've done it a few times and I was pleasantly surprised. I'd say it's comparable to the Y meals on transoceanic flights.

I don't know about CO but on the UA side, neither DEN-HNL nor ORD-HNL have free meals - they are BOB only. Same for AA on ORD-HNL and DFW-HNL.

I flew HA HNL-LAS in June and was VERY impressed. This was a dinner flight and that mean I got a really tasty pasta meal (spinach and ricotta cannelloni if I remember right) and a sticky cake thing for dessert, which was also really nice. The portions weren't huge, but it all tasted great!

Also there was a pretty-much never ending drinks service, and they had some really nice exotic juices which was a bit more creative than a tiny can of coke!

Overall I really couldn't fault HA at all.
