Not bad at all. Nice to see them making their product more attractive. Now that WN is testing wifi, FL better get their rears in gear!


Finally made it to an airline mecca!

What's to get excited about? It's all overpriced junk food. No quality food offerings at all.

Well it's definitely an improvement. Before all you could get were the little bags of pretzels. Now you can at least get something if you're really hungry.

FL is in about the same phase as WN with the wifi.

true, but airlines have found that there is a lot of spoilage with fresh food.

This is great FL is now going to offer this. On their longer westcoast flights, it would be nice if they offered a BOB fresh meal option of something simple like a couple of sandwiches and a salad.
In regards to the spoilage, this can be knocked out by offering the customer at the time of booking the option to purchase a sandwich and other snacks and to sell even more as a promo, sell it at a discount to introduce customers to this great new offering... Just a thought as a lot of carriers in the EU do this as well as AC.
