American Airlines is bringing back hot meals

Starting Feb. 16, American Airlines is bringing back hot meals for domestic first-class passengers after a nearly two-year suspension of the service because of the pandemic.

On flights of at least 3.5 hours, customers will receive a choice of a protein or vegetarian entrée, plus an appetizer, salad and dessert. 

American said it is bringing back favorites like warm mixed nuts, charcuterie and braised beef short ribs. It will introduce healthy grain bowls.

Meals will be served on one tray, followed by dessert service. 

The airline is also resuming pre-departure beverage service on Feb. 16.

Later in February, first-class customers traveling on flights that are 2.5 to 3.5 hours will select from lighter meal offerings like smoked salmon, fruit and cheese, and entrée salads. 

This spring, American said it will introduce “an even more elevated meal service” for first-class passengers traveling on long domestic flights. 

Beginning in April, the option to preorder meals returns in domestic first class. In May, customers will be able to request a special  vegan, vegetarian, diabetic, gluten intolerant, Asian, Hindu, Kosher or Muslim meal.
