American Airlines breakfast LAS-DFW

American Airlines breakfast options from LAS to DFW. AA offers a real advantage to those who buy first class tickets by letting them select meals in advance.

I get to go to Las Vegas next month, and I am flying American to get back home. Doing what I always do, I logged in to select my meals. AA offers a real advantage to those who buy first class tickets, because we can select what we want in advance. That makes sure they don’t run out of your preferred option.

American Airlines Service Recovery Efforts

Sometimes, you just want the airline to pretend to care. You get that it isn’t real caring, but you want someone to pretend. It turns out that American Airlines failed at even this basic standard of competence this week until I escalated the issue enough. While I would love to complain just to make myself feel better– and, well, OK, I will do that just a little bit– I figured I might handle the experience a little bit more productively by instead describing how AA handles service recovery efforts and what you should expect when a flight eventually goes wrong. Because if you fly long enough, something will eventually go wrong. Continue reading “American Airlines Service Recovery Efforts”
