Tell American Airlines What You Want, What You Really Really Want (to Eat)
After a few weeks of woes for American Airlines, there is some good news coming out of the troubled airline. It's nothing to do with their bankruptcy, but everything to do with FOOD as passengers traveling in First or Business Class will now have the option of pre-ordering their in-flight dining choice.
The idea of pre-ordering food before hopping on the plane is hardly groundbreaking, we know. This news comes as AA is the first US carrier to offer the service to passengers flying domestic routes and paying the big bucks to sit upfront.
Launched last week, the service is live for flights between New York-JFK and LA as well as Dallas and New York-LaGuardia. By the middle of November it will be expanded to JFK-SFO, ORD-LAX, ORD-LGA and DFW-LAX. Don't sweat it if these aren't your regular routes; by the end of 2013, the airline will continue the roll out to cover all domestic and international flights.
US airlines usually get a bad rap in comparison to foreign carriers so we cross our fingers that others will adopt this service. And for those of you lucky enough to sit up front on a regular basis, bon appetit!
