American has 4 ‘cycles’ of domestic first class meals that they rotate. New meals debuted in August 2015, and were supposed to cycle for a year.
Beef and Lobster Mac & Cheese is Still Being Served
The same food is still being served, but the Forward Cabin notes some changes to breakfast in October and last I heard there’s to be an update to other meals in November.
He describes them as “all around, positive changes” which I suspect is what George W. Bush called “the soft bigotry of low expectations.”
Here’s his description of October breakfast changes:
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.
In fact, here are the new breakfast cycles.
Regional jets, of course, get a different breakfast, as do premium transcon flights and international. These are the meals for mainline domestic first class which are catered on departure. There’s no change to the ‘shelf stable’ breakfast.
I try to eat at home or in the terminal, and skip inflight breakfast, if I’m able.
