Northwest meal report

Northwest meal report

4

Since I had three meal flights this past weekend on Northwest, I wanted to quickly report back on what was offered.

TPA-DTW was a breakfast flight, with the choice being between an omelet and cereal. In addition there was a choice between a bagel or a square of some sort of oatmeal. I went with the omelet and the oatmeal, both of which were delicious(ly unhealthy). The omelet had a bit of cheese, and was even better than the United omelet. I know a lot of people hate airplane omelets, but I love them. The meal also came with a decent sized plate of fruit, consisting of tons of blueberries, along with some melon, pineapple, kiwi, and a strawberry.

DTW-IAH was a lunch flight. The choices were either a cobb salad or a turkey sandwich. I went with the cobb salad, and thanks to the three other FlyerTalkers in first I was able to get a picture of both meals. The salad was delicious, and was served with fruit, a roll, and an incredibly delicious cookie. Seriously, whatever cookies they serve onboard are probably the best in the world.

IAH-DTW was a dinner flight, with the choice being between “fiesta chicken” and lasagna. I went with the chicken, while my seatmate, also a FlyerTalker, went with the lasagna. The dinner was served with a greek salad and a slice of cheesecake. The meal was good all around, and I have to say Northwest has the best desserts in the world. The cheesecake was incredible, probably the best I’ve had, be it on the ground or in the air.

Because I had four drink/snack coupons that were expiring at the end of the month I decided to buy some M&M’s and trail mix to take home so they didn’t go to waste. I saw a few people in first giving me a total freeloader look, especially when I took a picture of the snacks.

Overall Northwest’s meal service is impressive by domestic standards, especially their desserts. Given the fact that none of these flights were over two hours, I’d say Northwest has a solid product.

    I don't know if my waistline could tolerate a switch from UA to CO! Seriously good looking airline food.

    At least NW cheese and fruit with Kiwis and blueberries look much better than United's dreaded fruit and cheese plate. Maybe UA can take some catering cues for procuring good fruit; otherwise, they should banish serving this as a snack.
