    Didn't get mints prior to landing on any of 3 mainline segments i took yesterday (1 breakfast flight and 2 lunch flights). Are they gone for good?

    I'd chalk it up to lazy FAs (similar to lack of PDBs and sparkling water before arrival in int'l J). Now that you mention it, I received a mint on Thursday's DFW-BOS (lunch/snack), but not on recent DFW-LAS (breakfast), LAS-DFW (lunch/snack), or BOS-DFW (lunch/snack).

    I didn't get one on LAX-ORD on 7/7. No clue if they're gone now though.

    I've missed mints on more than half of my flights in the last couple of months. I rank them pretty low on the importance list (I notice when the sundae doesn't happen ;)), but I did take notice.

    I also noticed that the same mints that are given in-flight were in a candy bowl at just behind the FL entrance door at JFK last time I was there.

    The loss of the AA sundae would get its own sticked thread..... ;)

    I've had the mints on the last 10 flights that were mint eligible.

    Correction: The loss of the AA sundae would get it's own sticked thread with hundreds of responses. On OBB, the parallel thread would include all kinds of theories, conspiracies, and speculation about the devaluation of the meals & what, if anything, might replace the sundaes.

    Heck, the elimination of any one flavored topping on the sundae would be enough to generate a flurry of activity....

    If the sweet coffee topping gets pulled from HNL flights I'm switching to UA.

    So you can get a cookie for dessert? The grass is NOT greener on our side.

    On transcons, AA gives both: sundae AND cookie.....

    2 more segments today, still no mints. I guess I'll ask the FA on my next flight.
