Just a thought here...
Last year I flew Vancouver to Melbourne on SQ. My colleague has a serious shellfish allergy. He has an epi pin but that doesn't help when you are halfway between Seoul and Vancouver. You can't guarantee that food will not contain trace amounts of allergants. He ate Nutra Bars for the entire 24 hours in the air!! I loved the food on SQ!!
Perhaps it is the same reason (serious allergies) that a lot of airlines have stopped serving peanuts. Again, just a thought but based on some experience..

Just another though here...
People say that SQ has pulled Caviar out from the main menu due to cost-cutting measures. Actually this is not right, it is actually because of the fact that supply of Caviar has been dropping quite rapidly and that the demand has still been on a high level. Prices would surely go up, but the main point is that there's not enough Caviar for everyone! For your information SQ still serves Caviar on night flights, medium - long haul first class.
It might be only a change of menu or so, I don't really think it'd be a cost-cutting measure afterall.

Milesindependent is right, Lobster Thermidor was never offered in J class even when Book-the-cook was first introduced. I still have a copy of the P and J BTC booklet and can confirm that Lobster Thermidor was/is only offered in P class. The J class equivalent is Seafood Thermidor.
