The Best Care In The Air?

Sun Apr 08, 2001 10:17 pm

I know Midwest Express has built an excellent reputation for service and gourmet meals as well as the infamous chocolate chip cookies and top notch inflight service.

One simple question:

Do they still do that?

Is a typical ME meal still swordfish or beef Wellington or something like that, topped off with the hot cookies?

Yes. YX has not changed in the least. And now that they are buying 717s instead of 318, they won't have to change.

hey there,
I am not saying this just cause I work with the airline but I also think that the new Roots Air of Canada has some amazing food. I have been talking with some of the F/A's on the gound and they have said the food is out of this world. they told me that you wouldn't even think that it is airplane food. WOW I cannot wait to get on a roots flight. hope to see you all in the sky!!

YX food is awesome. The best is the cold lobster salad for lunch.

The food is really good on RootsAir and I am not just saying this because I work there either, but if I want to look good, I better stop eating it! Some items on the menu consist of a fresh tossed salad with an assortment of fixings, huge cheese crutons which look like giant snowflakes, fresh ground pepper, and an assortment of dressing. The salad is tossed and served right at the pax seat. The main course is a choice of 4 meals. Salmon with baby potatoes, fresh asparagus and ginger sauce. Grilled chicken with penne pasta and mixed grilled vegetables. Filet Mignon with pepper sauce and stuffed baked potato or stuffed pasta with grilled peppers. It's the homemade hot apple pie with French Vanilla Hagen Daas that is the killer... amazing! Poached pears with chocolate sauce, drizzled in Kahlua and a cheese platter with grapes. This is on a 3 hr and 15 min flight to Calgary. British Airways also has excellent cuisine and there are a host of other companies that also go that "extra mile" when it comes to food.
