AA And UA Meal Times

Tue Jun 05, 2001 7:34 am

Hi-
I am interested in knowing during what times are meals served on AA, UA and other Airliners. Also, how is it decided if a flight has a full meal, a snack or just pretzels?

Thanks-
SimonH.

With the standards of domestic air services in the US, I suppose the deciding factor is whether the airline believe they can get away with serving nothing at all!

But seriously, I guess if a particular flight is historically heavily patronized by business travellers or international connecting passengers, there is a good chance the meal service would be better.

For instance, I flew on AA Flight 100 (DFW-JFK) a couple of years ago. That was their only flight of the day from DFW to JFK, with many passengers connecting onto trans-Atlantic flights (including me). Although the flight departed DFW after lunchtime (which normally means a snack-only flight), we still get a full meal deal.
