I'm only comparing these to what U.S. airlines serve for meals.(or not serve)
Accoroding to the guy who took these photos, these meals were served on US-to-Canada flights on Air Canada's A320... If their coach class meals are this good, can't imagine what first class is having...

My only experience with Air Canada is a BOS-YUL roundtrip, so the meal service was not that extensive. I took an AC CRJ on 16FEB01 from Boston to Montréal-Dorval departing at 12:40, for a 55 minute flight to YUL. They served us two sandwiches, one a sandwich au jambon (ham sandwich) and a bagel with salmon pâté, a macaroni salad and shortbread cookies. Compare that to a 12:00 United flight I took in August 2000 on United Airlines from Boston to Washington-Dulles. The flying time was about 10 minutes longer and all they gave was a coke and a bag of pretzels. All that on a 737-300

I thought North American airline companies stopped serving meals with metal utensils!
My most recent flight to the USA was with on an AC Boeing 737-200, YYZ-DFW. The flight is about three hours in duration, and one meal was served. I found longer duration AC flights serve chicken with rice.

I have had the opportunity to fly (though admittedly not recently) in both Executive and Economy class on Air Canada and was under the impression that both classes receive the same meal. Maybe I am wrong. When Air Canada was serving meals, I think they have stopped recently, I found them to be very good; high quality and tasty.

Just flew Air Canada
Outbound to Toronto from YVR - utensils were plastic, but YUL to YVR metal fork and spoon, but a plastic knife. How dumb. I'm thinking if I wanted to I could do more damage with a metal fork than a metal knife.
