As a reminder, American Airlines refreshed their onboard meals for domestic first class, which went into effect on August 1st.
The new menu brings a modern, healthier approach to classic dishes such as lentil chili with polenta cake and shrimp and grits, while introducing new signature dishes and expanding vegetarian options. American stated that they have tweaked the menu to better match their customers’ current dining habits, such as doing away with heavy sauces.
New options include:
- an entree salad with pecan crusted chicken on the side, accompanied by a shrimp cocktail appetizer (lunch)
- beef filet with lobster mac and cheese, accompanied by an appetizer of antipasto skewers (dinner)
- a strawberry ice cream dessert with chocolate shavings by Ben & Jerry’s
