American Airlines‘ website, AA.com, is now reflecting the new first class meal service window that I had reported a few weeks ago. The change is effective for flights on and after September 1, 2014.
It is unfortunate that they have reduced the flights that will cater meals for first class passengers but it was bound to happen eventually…I suppose. If I were a Platinum or Gold, I would evaluate whether getting upgraded to first class on some flights was actually worth the upgrade stickers. I personally would not use upgrade stickers for any of the below flights.
Why wouldn’t I upgrade on ANC-DFW? It’s on a very uncomfortable (and old) B757. It’s also a late flight which I would pass out on before I get a good dose of booze. I flew first class on AA278 back in June and though yes, it is a long flight, it is not worth it without a meal service. Your entertainment options also sucks aboard this flight.
