To save money, increase first class food flights and end customer complaints about Bistro bags, AA
removed them from all but the longest non-transcon flights. Examples are DFW
. There are others, but very few left. American conceeded they never met customer expectations and decided removing them wouldn't hurt anything.
Of course, as a flight attendant, I know different. Remember all the crap airlines uised to get for their hot meals, but then when they went away post 9/11 people, including A.nutters SCREAMED? The backlash over the absence of Bistros has already started. People just amaze me. An airline is there to get you from A to B, not feed or entertain you.
Current breakfast bistro: yogurt, raisins, granola bar
Current lunch/dinner bistro: ham or turkey sandwich, potato chips, carrots and cookie or brownie
At one point pre-9/11, AA
actually made a vast improvement in the Bistros with whole chicken breast sandwiches on whole wheat buns, deli-style cheddar cheese, lettuce and tomato.
