I just got back from San Juan today and while I’ll share my impressions of the city in a future post (long story short, I loved it), I have something unrelated that kind of surprised me
Departing San Juan today I flew American to Miami at 1:25PM, while a friend flew United to Newark at 1:05PM. Not only did his flight leave closer to lunch time, but it was also 600 miles further than mine.
Upon landing we traded food pics, and I couldn’t help but feel like I came out victorious. 😉
Here’s his United meal, for which there was no choice (and no nuts):
While here’s my American meal, where I had the choice between chicken quesadillas and a salmon salad:
How United considers a 1:05PM flight a “snack” window is beyond me…
And this is one of the (many) reasons that American’s catering is the best of any US airline, in my opini0n.
