Starting November 8, American is offering a new meal entree selection during lunch and dinner flights.
American will offer a fruit and cheese tray, along with dessert, a bread roll and salad for pre-order only. Pre-orders are accepted up until 24 hours prior to departure. Unfortunately, the flight will not be catered with more cheese plates than pre-ordered, so if you don’t select this option online, you won’t be able to choose if inflight. It’s worth noting – if your upgrade clears within 24 hours or you’re upgraded at the gate, the fruit and cheese tray will not be available to you onboard.
The change comes as American encourages more pre-ordering of meals in advance of flights, and suggestions from flyers that don’t like the two standard entrees currently offered – usually one with meat, and one vegetarian.
What do you think of the new fruit and cheese tray entree available for pre-order?
