I wrote lasy week about the American Airlines Kosher meal. I was traveling from PHL to LAS on a dinner flight, and my buddy ordered that. On the same flight, I ordered the American Airlines Muslim meal. Neither of us ordered for religious reasons, and both of the meals were great. For my money, however, I would probably order the Muslim meal.

The first tray of the American Airlines Kosher meal in first class from PHL to LAS. The entree came later, although it was unclear whether this was on purpose.

A buddy and I took a dinner flight from PHL to LAS earlier this month. I’ve had pretty good luck with the special meals in American Airlines first class, so we decided to try two more of them. On this flight, I had the Muslim meal and he had the American Airlines Kosher meal. Neither of us ordered the meals for religious reasons. I will write about the Muslim meal this weekend. For today, however, I want to review the Kosher meal.

Ultimately, however, food on an airplane suffers from certain limits. What is the best way to get around those limits? It may be Zoe’s Charcuterie Plate. Texan Abroad enjoyed it from Las Vegas to Dallas. As airplane food goes, it is just about perfect.

The Boeing 787-800, or 788, is a dual-aisle aircraft designed for long-haul travel. It has a number of amenities such as electronic window shades and mood lighting. While this aircraft is principally designed for international travel, the American Airlines Boeing 787-800 is sometimes used on domestic routes. I flew it from Las Vegas to Dallas recently. It was a great flight.

American Airlines breakfast in domestic first class

The American Airlines breakfast in first class featuring the Montamoré Cheese Omelette. I added the butter since it was a touch dry.

In December, I wrote about the American Airlines breakfast options from Las Vegas to Dallas. One thing that AA does exceptionally well is to give first class flyers choices. On this flight, I could have selected oatmeal, an omelette, or any special meal they had. I wanted a regular breakfast, so I went with the omelette. It was good, but I probably should have selected one of the special meals.
