American Airlines serves a selection of small sandwiches in their First Class snack basket onboard sub-2 hour flights, and on a recent flight, I selected the Chicken Curry Multigrain Oat Square.
Let’s take a look at the details of the flight:
Route: Vail/Eagle, CO to Dallas, TX
Aircraft: Boeing 757
Meal Window: Refreshment (after 1:31pm)
Meal: Lite Bites Chicken Curry Multigrain Oat Square
Once airborne, and following a beverage service and warm nuts to start, a lite bites snack basket was offered, since this flight fell outside of a traditional meal window.
It comes pre-packaged in a brown wrapper, and once unfolded, unveils a small sandwich.
- The sandwich was small.
- The bread was very dry.
- There were two slices of deli-meat style chicken inside.
- The curry mustard sauce was a bit messy, since it had smeared inside the package.
- The sandwich tasted processed, though had a nice curry kick to it.
Forever gone will be the days of the old full snack service, plated and with a table cloth.
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!
