Does anyone know if AA ever considered other 747 versions such as the 200, 300, or 400 series?

Do you really need a hot meal on a (mainly) less-than-3 hours flight when your taste buds are shot due to the cabin altitude?


There are some Hawaii flights that are over 6 hours long with no meal service.
