No More Warm Nuts On AA In First On Some Routes

I flew AA MIA-MSY last week in F and was shocked that AA no longer serves warm nuts in F on this flight. Instead, we got a prepackaged pretzel mix of some sort.

I remember flying this route just a few years ago and we were actually served warm nuts and a full, hot dinner!

When did AA stop the warm nuts and (I presume they still serve them on flights longer than xxx miles / y hours)? What flights still get warm nuts?

Disgusting isn't it? They have to cut costs to pay for all those early retirements.

I have gotten the warm nuts on multiple flights in the last couple months, on short routes such as DFW-PHX. Could it be that this could have been that this flight ran out, or was not catered properly?

I'm allergic to nuts. I've really enjoyed the fact that pretzels are taking over.

Well, given that we were going out from MIA, you would think that the hub wouldn't have run out of nuts (the edible type, that is!).

good news, I bet they turn down the AC flow next... So you will have a return of warm nuts to the aircraft.

Be careful what you ask for.  




I have read that many US domestic routes have chipped away so much from their first class and business class service to the point where only the seat comfort is the only thing that separates it from flying coach.

Flights over one hour have warm nuts. For whatever reason, your flight didn't have them.

Snack/brunch is identical to a lunch meal, just coded for flights departing outside of traditional lunch/dinner windows. It's a full meal.

Have AA disabled the heated seats in First then? On the bright side, I heard that they're bad for male fertility.

Same here. I get warm nuts all the time in economy, but I find a short walk around the cabin helps cool things down

Is AA removing ovens from narrowbodies?

That could be the reason why warmed nuts are no longer available on some flights - lack of equipment to heat them.

Ovens were removed from the coach galleys. They still serve hot food in first. I flew ORD-SEA-ORD in first this summer and had a cheeseburger for lunch. Warm nuts were served before lunch.

My MIA-MSY flight is about 650 miles, about 1 hour 35 minutes. Perhaps if the flight is under 2 hours, you just get the crummy prepackaged pretzel mix.

I have always wondered, if a pax declares to the F/As prior to flight that they have a peanut or other nut allergy, is there a protocol to not disburse nuts on that flight?

I know some people are extremely allergic to nuts and have to carry an Epipen (Epinephrine Injection) at all times.

Lucky you! Me and my cold nuts are sitting in an cubicle in an office building, right after walking across campus to the cafe and back on a brisk New England fall day! However, it's nice and warm in the office, so my cold nuts are becoming warm nuts again, and it feels soooo good!

Nobody can resist my Sweddy Balls. It's a secret Sweddy family recipe . I didn't realize people enjoyed the warm nuts that much. Looks like I am missing out due to my allergy! But then again I really enjoy the cookies on DL. Would probably rather have them anyways.

25 sw733 : I've flown this route several times in the past 4 months and always had them in the afternoon/evening.
26 crAAzy : I flew ORD-DCA and back this weekend and got nuts on both flights. It seems this is more of a one off and the title is rather misleading.
27 aajfksjubklyn : People...AA is still serving nuts. By the time warm nuts are heated up the plane would be landing... Typically on flight 1.5 hours and under, they giv

29 automaticboy6 : I was on AA in F from JFK-MCO last year, no warm nuts. Was a bit surprised, they did serve heated up oatmeal rasin cookies.

33 eastern023 : AA continues to take perks away from the passenger. They are in a push to put themselves out of business.
