transatlantic flights besides the AF
day flights, the dinner will always be the main meal. I have always flown on late transatlantic flights with scheduled departures after 10 (Okay LX
was 9 :15 but delayed in the usual JFK
departure traffic). It has just developed where dinner is always the main meal on a flight leaving at night. It doesn't matter if it leaves at 4 PM
, there will only be a small breakfast. Every airline gives you different options in portion and meals, but night transatlantic flights are a dinner service. Sometimes the websites mess up and don't give you the exact service because they only list one meal. Usually it always the first meal of service, that being dinner on your flight, but just because it says that, does not mean it is true. You can notice what meals you get by looking on this site's trip reports, or go onto airlinemeals.net or I guess google or flyertalk.

On SAS transatlantic flights from Stockholm, do they serve a breakfast or a lunch? The flight departs around 9-10am from ARN?
On all transatlantic flights back to the states, you will get a lunch service. In terms of airline meals, breakfast is the one meal where if it doesn't fit exactly, they won't serve it unless if is a really long flight like NYC-HKG
where they serve breakfast prior to landing because it is that time at home which I don't agree with, but they do. Lunch and dinner meals on long flights are the same thing. There is really no difference in pure quantity. Of course this varies by airline and by what you concider more filling or what the airline gives you. But, they really will never serve breakfast on a flight back from Europe as they can't give the same service in F and C (or whatever you want to call Business) because it cannot take the same form as lunch or dinner. It just doesn't work for an F service on a TATL flight as breakfast is well breakfast. Also, the ARN
(or destinations like those I forget exactly all of their N American destinations), are all pretty long flights, but not long enough where they would serve you a meal that doesn't correspond with your destination and doesn't offer the same foods which they want for their service.
