This is What American Airlines Calls Breakfast
We need to take a second and go into ranty mode right now, because what you see above was served up on a recent international American Airlines flight as breakfast. Cost-cutting much? Just to confirm, that is a single croissant. And okay, there's a little cup of orange juice and some milk tea too.
The flightfrom New York-JFK to Milan-Malpensawasn't a quick puddle jump, either; it was a standard 8-hour international leg, one that surely calls for a better breakfast than a croissant. Damn itwhere's the fruit cup? Or an egg white omelet, maybe? These aren't outrageous demands; we've flown other airlines in economy with breakfast service recently, and weren't this disappointed. It also didn't help that our dinner entree looked as though it had shrunk by a third.
And in case you're wondering what was being served up in Business Class, it wasn't much more either. The menu lists a choice of yogurt or Kellogg's cereal. They, however, do get a fruit cup and a choice of "breakfast breads." We love flying, but we hate it when skimping becomes really apparent. We suppose we should just be happy they didn't charge us extra for our meals, though, hmm?
