This is what separates American airlines with its international counterparts; in-flight meals (also friendly service and in-flight entertainment, not to mention luggage allowance, anyway…). This is a less-than-2-hour flight and look at the in-flight meal. First off, real utensils! Oh my… that’s a concept, right American airline industry? Ok, before the flight takes off, every one gets a small dose of orange juice from concentrate (the thought that counts). Now, the meal. Bread in plastic and butter, ok. Fruits; 2 cubes of pineapple, melon, and watermelon; healthy. Small dose of water + beverage of your choosing. Main meal: Duck fried rice; pretty nice. Personally, I really like it!.
Once again, still in awe of GA’s In-flight entertainment system (IFE). Picture-in-picture feature is great. I can check out the Big Bang Theory and Sheldon’s shenanigans while browsing what next to watch. Cool and keren!
