AAdvantageGeek offers a rundown of the comings and goings in the new American Airlines Buy Onboard menu.
Apparently the Boston Market carver sandwiches, the turkey, and the snack box are gone, along with the chocolate covered waffle.
In there place you’ll find a California Cobb Salad and a Briscuit, Lettuce, and Tomato sandwich, both of which sound quite good in their descriptions. There’s also an oatmeal, cranberry, and chocolate cookie that I’m guessing I could do without.
I’m interested because I have a flight later in the week where I don’t expect my upgrade to clear (the flight was showing “F2” — only 2 first class seats for sale — even before the Executive Platinum upgrade window opened and now shows only “F1″…) and because Executive Platinum members are entitled to a complimentary buy onboard item, in addition to a complimentary cocktail. Unlike some airlines, it’s not coupon based and there’s no limit to the number of times in a year to take advantage of this benefit. You just show your boarding pass which displays Executive Platinum stats, or your elite card.
So an exit row seat, a cocktail, and a sandwich (and hopefully onboard internet) and I’ll be golden!
Stay tuned next week, and assuming I’m sitting in back you’ll get a report on American’s coach product!
