Ok, I got one for everyone here. Who was the first airline to serve ice cream sundaes in F class and who still does? I first had it on CO when I flew with my sister who was working the trip from HNL-LAX. Most recently it was on UA in F, SFO-HNL, pre 9/11. It's a nice touch to the end of a meal and usually a very nice presentation from a queen cart seatside. Can't wait to hear who the first was. Please share any experiences you have had with this service as well.

I am not sure who is the first, but a few years back, National Airlines served Ice Cream after dinner. It was the shortest LAS-MDW flight I have ever had, or so it felt like.

The last time I flew AA business class (a while ago now), they served Haagen Daaz with hot berry sauce. Very nice  Laugh out loud

Last time I flew on a Braathens 735 in Norway, they served ice cream. It was just a 40 min flight, so that's all they served, but nonetheless a nice gesture in those days where in-flight service just get worse.

I had an ice cream sundae in FC as a non-rev on DL SEA-ATL on a 763. This was back in March 2001 I believe.

Obviously it happens quite a lot now, but when I was BOAC Cabin Crew in the early 60s, we always served thick creamy slices of Cassata in the First Class Monarch Service flights on 707s out of NYC. Yummee!

US carriers love serving ice cream in First Class, it's a very cheap substitute for a proper dessert for them. I think it's great as an extra service, or as an option for dessert, don't think I'd be that impressed if it was all that was on offer which seems to be the case sometimes...

During the summer months June, July and August both SAS Scandinavian airlines and Braathens used to serve ice cream to all passengers on all flights domestic in Norway. This has been a tradition for several years, but this summer may be the first without ice cream due to the fact that SAS group is launching their new airline in Norway in a month time....called "SAS Braathens".
