    No, I didn't take pictures of the food:(. It was YHZ - YYZ on Jun 6 - so domestic > 2 hrs.

    I had the lasagna, and it wasn't bad... the same sauce as the earlier pasta, but more veggies in this one. I quite like the Bordeaux they're serving now too:)

    Looks quite attractive. Better than the previous menu. I hope to check it out soon.
     
  7. Mahi Mahi steak? A new winner! Hope to see this on YYZ-YVR-YYZ soon

    Stunning. Neither red peppers nor mushrooms.
     
  10. Had the mahi mahi meal on YMM/YYZ today and it was quite good........had a California Cab that was also very nice.

    I'm not a big morning person, but ended up in J on YUL/YYZ the other week. I don't fly much in J either -- so might explain why it was my first breakfast :). It was some kinda omelet with sausage, it looked terrible (like a bad TV dinner), but tasted surprisingly good. I was almost disappointed to have stopped at Tim Hortons before.
     
  12. I had the omelet today on a YEG/YYZ flight and it was just fine. There were two MM'ers on board and the IC jokingly asked who had the most miles so he could do the politically correct thing. I was first.:)

    Paid up to sit in J on way back from YWG-YYC yesterday ($99) rather than burn 10 eupgrade credits. Worked fine.

    Good food on the Jazz CRA flight. All cold but that is some of my favorite--choice of cold chicken on spinach or salmon on pasta spirals with lots of fresh tomatos and a lovely chocolate mousse cake (just like the good old days in the late 1990s and early 2000s!). Fond memories of similar food on redeyes from YYC-YYZ. Glad to see it back. Basic but it is some of the easiest and best tasting food for flights.

    $99 isn't bad! They wanted $140 for YYC-YEG (on the E90 flight, of course).
    And yes, I agree, the cold chicken is pretty good!

    Interesting, I thought AC put ovens back in the Embraers? Isn't it kind of odd that they'd be serving cold food in J?

    Opted for the mahi mahi yesterday whilst on AC101 (YYZ>YVR). Was gelationous, lukewarm and smothered in a brown sauce that tasted like OXO.

    However, the mixed greens with asparagus made for a nice salad.

    Other aspects of front-cabin service were excellent, and on the whole it was a good (although somewhat whiskey-sloshed) journey.

    How I wish YYC was YVR - then we'd be flying on nice comfortable a/c to YYZ and YUL (occasionally)...
     
  19. I was disappointed to see the cheese plates back on YYC-YVR-YYC this week - exactly the same as before. The hot snacks they were serving didn't last long. Are they still being served on any flights?

    Yes, they do still serve the fajitas, empanadas, etc but typically only during flights under 2 hrs at regular meal times. The cheese plate comes out now in the "off" hours on the shorter flights

    Not for domestic, but had that Beef Tenderloin on YYZ-LAX about two weeks ago. While it wasn't necessarily something I'd write home about, it was much better than I had expected! :)

    I enjoyed the mahi mahi, but they ran out early, so my traveling companion, also an SE, did not get.

    I'm grateful AC is mixing up the menus a little bit. I tried the Mahi Mahi last week on YYZ-YQR and it was alright, though a bit overdone. I'd try it again and may do so in a few week. I plan to try the pasta this week. More than anything else, though, I'm just glad to AC is experimenting with different dishes.

    The menu change I've been most pleased by is the change to empanadas and skewers on the short-haul routes I fly most often. I used to skip the cheese plates quite often but I quite like these new snacks and they are filling enough to make things convenient if I'm off to a meeting right off the plane.

    I have had the hot snacks a few times now, on mid-evening jaunts from YYZ down to BOS. Frankly, I miss the cheese tray, especially its earlier incarnation which contained interesting Canadian cheeses such as Oka. On the other hand, not eating cheese is probably good for my cholesterol levels.....
