We also sell premium meals on flights to Europe, the Middle East and South America and we offer special meals on all flights in Economy.

    Not sure I would order one of these meals, but I do like the trend of US carriers offering upgraded products fo a price rather than continuing to nickel and dime us for what should be included in the price of the ticket.

    If I was a US flyer flying long-haul, I'd certainly give it a try.

    I just ordered this for my flight this week. Since I will be sitting in Coach, I thought this would cheer me up :) . It does look nice. I'll report back upon my return to say whether it seemed worth it.

    Sorry for the slow reply, I only just got back. In a word: yes. Presentation was very nice, food was delicious. The only thing that caught me off-guard was that it was served cold. But, it was really delicious, much much better than the stock Coach dish. Served with a glass of wine, I think it was a nice splurge. I think I will make a a regular thing for long flights.

    Sorry for the slow reply: I had the Chicken skewers, and I presumed they would be served hot. But (and I have read some other reviews saying the same thing), I guess it is supposed to be served cold. It was still great, just a mild surprise.
