In this post, I’ll be reviewing American Airlines’ Lite Bites Arugula Pesto and Roasted Tomato Rosemary Square, served in their domestic First Class.
Let’s take a look at the details of the flight:
Route: Washington DC (Reagan) to Chicago, IL
Aircraft: Boeing 737
Meal Window: Refreshment (after 1:31pm)
Meal: Lite Bites Arugula Pesto and Roasted Tomato Rosemary Square
Once airborne, a lite bites snack basket was offered, since this flight fell outside of a traditional meal window. Among the offerings was the Lite Bites Arugula Pesto and Roasted Tomato Rosemary Square. There were other sandwich offerings, but this is the one I chose and will be reviewing.
It comes pre-packaged in a brown wrapper, and once unfolded, unveils a small (very small) square shaped sandwich.
- The sandwich itself was actually very good, but would have been better if it was larger and included more filling inside (pesto, tomato, etc.)
- The sandwich was slightly soggy from the inside filling, but not terribly so to be enough to not enjoy it.
- The filling inside is quite taste, and tastes like an antipasto you’d receive at any Italian restaurant.
I far prefer the snack service on the “old” American airlines where it was a full sandwich on a plate, but for now, this looks to be the type of sandwich on offer.
If you’re on a “lite bites” flight, and are hungry, I hope this helps you better decide what to take out of the snack basket once it is passed around!
