American has toyed with their onboard meals over the last several years, much for the negative.

In October, there’s 2 changes coming to American’s onboard domestic First Class meal service:

Limited Time Offers Up To 50,000 Points

Domestic Breakfast Refresh

Here’s what we can look forward to come October:

  • A new egg entree.
  • A continental fruit plate.
  • Steel cut oatmeal with improved toppings.
  • 3 choices of breakfast breads on all flights, up from 2: biscuits, croissants/bagels and a sweet bread.

From American Airlines: “We’re introducing new menu options in October which include a new egg entree, a continental fruit plate, and steel cut oatmeal with improved toppings. Customers will now have three bread choices for all breakfast flights: biscuits (every cycle), croissants/bagels, or sweet breakfast breads. In addition, each medium and long haul tray will receive vanilla Chobani yogurt.

Here’s what the new setup will look like.


I’m looking forward to the new continental fruit plate like on international flights, the new sweet breads (someone better put those darn cinnamon rolls on…), and the yogurt. All around, positive changes.
