The Return of the Dreaded American Airlines Croissant
Earlier last month, we hopped on a quick (7-hour) American Airlines flight to Milan, Italy and discovered a very disturbing fact: that American seems to have cut back on their in-flight meal service quite a bit.
For example, our entree was half the size of what we've had on other Europe-bound flights on other legacy carriers recently, and our breakfast? Well, it was a single croissant, even though you get your choice of butter or strawberry jam as a topping. Whoopee.
Yesterday we headed back across the pond on American Airlines because the price was right, and because a long weekend in Zurich, Switzerland sounded awesome. Lo and behold, the lonely croissant breakfast showed up again, and it appears to be the standard meal for Europe-bound AA flights.
Now we get it; it's stupid to complain about such a thing, but when you consider the fact that American doesn't exactly have the lowest fares to Europe or the best service and their seats are notoriously old and uncomfortable, you'd hope that at least something as simple as breakfast would be okay. Alas, we remain disappointed.
