    Seth –

    I’m surprised it took UA this long to figure this out. I bombed around the country on AA/US last two months, and in 46 flights with them, was never served the same meal twice on any of the meal flights (20 flights?), and additionally – was served a full meal on an RJ from MSY-ORD! No one was more surprised than I. While it may be a nice offering, it could be a case of too little too late? I’ll wait and reserve judgement on that.

    What’s your AA/US experience with meals?

    Welcome back to…. Err… Yesterday?

    It’s amusing to watch the big excitement about AA and meals when I’ve been served a decent meal on almost every flight (over 45min) I’ve been on in the last twenty years.

    Airlines in Asia never stopped serving meals all along. In fact, I was taken by surprise when I was in the USA five years ago, and had to go hungry on a three hour flight!

    Welcome back to the fold, AA!
