I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing American Airlines First Class product in the past. But it’s been a while. Since our trip down to Buenos Aires in AA’s First Class, American has rolled out turn down service, a new First Class product and the ability to pre-order your meal. I’m excited to experience two of the three on an upcoming flight and have already placed my meal order. Here is a simple walk through of how to pre-order your First Class American Airlines meal. And by all means let me know if I’m missing the boat with my order.
Select “Flight Option” To Update Entree Reservation
Open up your flight reservation on the American Airlines website and selection Flight Option Entree Reservations to make or edit your meal selection.
On this international flight in American’s old 777 First Class product, I have a sleection of Seared Balsamic Chicken, Grilled Beef Filet, Seared Shrimp, or Orecchiette Pasta.
Update 24 Hours Prior To Departure
American Airlines allows you to edit your selection up to 24 hours prior to departure. I’d venture to guess that once onboard, you might be able to modify your selection. But then again, if I booked a meal, I’d expect to be served that meal as well. So I wouldn’t count on it being available. I’ll check this on an upcoming flight and report back.
It is pretty cool how you can select your meal on American Airlines before you even take off. A few simple clicks and you can review the available meals and make your selection.
On an upcoming flight I selected the Grilled Beef because it seemed like a safe bet. Did I make a mistake? What’s your favorite American Airlines International First Class meal?
