Review: American Airlines Buy on Board Egg Salad Croissant

American Airlines usually has a very decent buy-on-board menu in economy, and in some cases, I often prefer the food served their, than what’s served up front.

For breakfast, there’s an Egg Salad Croissant on offer (I would have thought this would be a lunch item, but it is served prior to that time period), and it sells for $6.99. You can receive a 25% discount as a Citi AAdvantage cardholder, or for free if you are an American Airlines Executive Platinum or US Airway’s Chairman’s Preferred.


In the buy-on-board menu, American describes the sandwich as a “Egg salad, turkey bacon, Monterey Jack cheese and lettuce on a croissant.”


The sandwich was surprisingly not soggy, and had a very thick slice of cheese and turkey bacon. While I didn’t add it, it was served with a small packet of mayonnaise. I asked for a Bloody Mary, and a cup of water, which was promptly served. I actually found it really delicious, though since I was incredibly hungry at the time, would have hoped for it to be served with a side of something.


At $6.99, the sandwich is quite pricey if you aren’t able to receive it for free, though it’s tasty nonetheless. Not sure I’d purchase outright, but for those that are able to get it at a discount, or as part of their elite perks, it’s a wise choice.
