I've noticed that HA no longer tells you about the meals in Y. It just says you will get a complementary meal or you can buy a gourmet meal for $10. It seems that they are doing what Aloha did. Are the tray meals gone and now do you only get a sandwich?

I flew with HA a few months ago and that wasn't the case. I never heard anything about being able to buy a gourmet meal. They still had the numerous snack items for sale but I still got a hot meal for free like they have always done and I wouldn't see why they would change that.

Complimentary meal service in HA transpac and international is still around. BOB is also offered....you now have a choice of the complimentary meal or "upgrade" to a premium meal for $10.

The complimentary meal is an entree with dessert and drink. I believe the complementary meal is still either a pasta dish or sandwich combo. The $10 upgrade meal varies but can include a sushi bento, taco salad, chicken salad or pasta dish. The upgrade meal includes dessert and a bottled water.

Further, the packaging of all the meals is biodegradable and made from recycled materials as part of the "going green" movement. I've seen pictures of the new meals and packaging on the local news when HA rolled the program out and it looks pretty good.

First class meal service remains unchanged.

I like this move by HA...it doesn't put the airline on the same lines of others by offering a 100% BOB product, but also is a way to generate some extra revenue by offering a BOB in conjunction with a complimentary meal service...a service that already differentiated HA from other domestic carriers who eliminated complimentary Y meal service.

I was just wondering if they still offered a hot meal, which I hear they do! Aloha did not, all you got was this sandwich.
