Meal Review: American Airlines Domestic First Class Quiche Florentine

Enroute from Washington DC to Chicago, I had a choice between a steal cut oatmeal and a quiche florentine. Not having tried the quiche before, I decided to order it and was quite impressed.

Meal Window: Breakfast

Meal: Quiche Florentine with rosemary potatoes and red peppers


Once airborne, the lead flight attendant came around for beverage and meal orders. Being a very light flight and only four people seated in First, both options were readily available. I asked for a cranberry juice with ice, as well as the quiche.


On the meal tray included:

  • Fresh fruit including pineapple, grapes, orange, cantaloupe and honeydew mellon
  • A choice of biscuit or honey raisin bread. I chose the biscuit.
  • Quiche florentine with rosemary potatoes and red peppers

My impressions of the meal:

  • The quiche was flaky and quite delicious, though could have been warmer. To me, it felt just above lukewarm and wasn’t hot at all.
  • This type of breakfast could have really used some hot sauce on the side, though I did sprinkle the pepper packet that came with it.
  • Some ketchup would have also been nice with the potatoes.

Overall, a good meal and one I’d order again. I just wish it was hotter.
