I stumbled upon this American Airlines behind the scenes video tonight and found it interesting to see a flight meal from the crew perspective.
It takes at least 30 minutes to an hour to prepare business class service. The first and most important thing is to get the coffee nice and hot. Second is to prepare the cockpit service.
Lastly, they heat up the nuts so they are “nice and warm” to make the service more enjoyable.
Did you know:
- American Airlines passengers are served with only 2 ovens and no freezers
- No freezers are available on the flight, instead, dry ice, regular ice and dry ice are used to keep food cold
- Most food is covered to keep the food fresh
The meal choice on this Rio de Jeneiro flight was Chateau Briand or Pesto Pasta for the cockpit. Fresh bread and service with a smile is hard to beat.
