American has released what was once rumored to be a change to their meal service based on mileage flown and time of day. There are a few routes that are exempted from the mileage requirement.
One exception that doesn’t make much sense to me is the JFK-FLL route…I’m also shocked that the DCA-MIA rote is not an exception to the new changes.
The new change only applies to flights that are domestic and to/from Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean.
View From the Wing first reported about the possibility of these changes after he spoke to an AA representative on June 7th. However, these charts were recently released which prove what he and the rep had previously mentioned.
Gary from View From the Wing also claims that the following routes (markets) are exempt:
- CLT and PHL-MSP
