Nothing better than a juicy filet mignon and some cocktails at 35,000 feet. It is even sweeter when you are seated in American’s new first class 757 product.

Here are some highlights from the DFW to SEA trip on American Airlines.


We started strong with a double Absolute and club soda. The drink service was spectacular and the drinks flew through the entire flight.



The food options consisted of Halibut, Chicken or Filet. We went for the red meat. The filet mignon was cooked a perfect medium and the sweet potatoes were tasty.

  1. Love these! attaches to your shirt button to serve as a bib in case of bumpy flights or drippy sauces!

  2. Shirt button? Really? I always just stuck my index finger in there so when the fork goes to my mouth anything I drop will roll down the napkin on to the floor so whatever it is I dropped won’t get my shirt stained 🙂

  3. I agree with the shirt button thing, though my mind immediately jumps to more vulgar ideas, especially concerning men.

  4. The hole can be used to attach to any button of your clothes so they don’t fall off when enjoying a meal!!

  5. Button hole to fasten the napkin to your shirt. Totally set for fresh Dungeness crab in the Upper Cabin! Still waiting for someone to come out with that dish…

  6. Hole is for attaching to a shirt button… especially helpful for first class lobster back in the old days, I’d imagine!

  7. I agree, it is a neat trick. Not every airline has the napkin holes.

    The winner of the Admirals Club pass for this post give away will be announced tomorrow, Monday morning, as mentioned in the post above.

    There is still time to enter more guesses…

  8. Must agree with most, an attachment point for the shirt or blouse button. Smart idea, c onsidering the ugly entee. (That plating was TERRIBLE!)

  9. You can put it on a shirt button to use like a bib or you can put it on your pants button so you don’t lose your napkin & have to try to fish for it with your foot. 🙂

  10. The hole is for using your napkin as a bib by buttoning the napkin to the highest button on your shirt. Otherwise you could tuck your napkin in your collar or attach your napkin to a set of clips that go around your neck like the dentist uses. Any of these methods will help keep your shirt and tie clean and stain free.

  11. The purpose of the hole is to attach the napkin to your shirt collar so that you have a bib to protect your clothes. The other choice is to tuck the napkin around your neck and allow it to drape over your clothes. Either way, you get maximum shirt protection. We only use paper napkins at home, so there is no hole and tucking in is the only choice.
