Complimentary Meals- Mainland-Hawaii

Sun Jan 05, 2014 11:00 pm

I was wondering if airlines apart from Hawaiian give their coach passengers free meals from the Mainland to Hawaii.

American-
Alaska Airlines-
Delta-
United-
US Airways-

I am also wondering if US Airways served meals in CLT-HNL and PHL-ANC.

Thanks!

HA is the only one as far as I know.

AKAIK this is correct.

AS has a special BYOB menu for their Hawaii flights with things like Kiluea pork, Korean chicken, and Portuguese sausage.
When in doubt, one B pump off

I don't think the legacy airlines serve meals for free. EWR-HNL is one of the longest flights in the world without complimentary meal service outside of some Europe to Thailand flights.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

A few years ago we flew DFW-OGG on AA. No free meals and not enough buy on board for everyone for a 8+ hour flight. Fortunately I knew and came prepared. I'm sure there was some very hungry people on that flight.

UA has free food in Y for the GUM-HNL flight, but not on the longer HNL-ORD trip. Buy on board only for Y folks.

I don't believe US operates CLT-HNL nonstop any longer.

Delta served complimentary meals in Y on ATL-HNL. They switched to BOB in September 2012. It's a very long flight not to have a complimentary meal served, 8-9hrs.

They stopped after one summer, but I am wondering if they did serve meals in economy.

Flew on HNL-CLT in June 2010. The first meal service was complimentary (hot dinner) but the pre-landing service was BOB.

Hawaiian is also a legacy airline.

Though you are correct, and that term would also include AS and, to some extent WN (though WN is debatable depending on your definition), usually the term legacy has been used to refer to what have been the big carriers.

Someone mentions the word "legacy", the four carriers that pop to mind are US, AA, UA, and DL, even if HA and AS are also qualified to be in the category.

That is totally incorrect, regardless on whether you want to believe that is true or not
