    My JFK/EZE F has the following choices, and I've not had a meal on AA in about 5 years. These are the choices on the southbound. If these have been in a previous rotation, or if you're otherwise familiar with them, I'd welcome any comments.


    • Rosemary Chicken
      Rosemary chicken enhanced by a teardrop tomato vinaigrette
    • Hoisin Beef Fillet
      Hoisin marinated beef fillet
    • Potato Chip Crusted Halibut
      With red pepper thyme and caper parsley sauces
    • Chilled Mediterranean Prawns
      Served in tarragon aïoli sauce, with panzanella salad
    • Choose Later
      I will make my selection at a later time or during the flight

    The prawns and the beef have been good the last few flights. They have also been offering soup to and from EZE which was an excellent choice. It's a nice light meal then off to sleep for a few hours. I had the fih once and wow, not very good. Could have enjoyed chewing a shoe much more... YMMV.

    AA always does a good job with beef, and the steel cut oatmeal is my favorite breakfast item. It comes with brown sugar on the side.

    Here's a chateaubriand with mushroom sauce that I had Madrid-JFK that was one of the best meals I've ever had on AA:

    I ordered the soup on my leg from JFK to EZE. The soup is perfect with some wine and a movie, then off to sleep.

    So, on a different trip (SFO/MIA/SFO) in F, the screen pops up, but there aren't any meal selections. I called reservations, the agent spoke with a supervisor, and he told me that there were no pre-order meals available on these flights. Disappointing, as I'm in row 1 on the "O" flight and the entire F cabina is full. I'd have chosen a different seat nearly two months ago when booking this.
