From SGN to DOH I had a supper and then bagel snack and then from DOH to JFK I had as above

Nice. A lot better than the WAM meals that someone wrote they got a year ago on QR.

The Wiki needs to be updated for AA.  They now serve kosher meals in F for most flights that meals are served https://www.aa.com/i18n/travel-info/experience/dining/special-meals-and-nut-allergies.jsp

I am currently flying AA488 (PHX-PHL) and was served a very nice Borenstein meal.  I may post a picture if I figure out how to remove my name from the picture.

Would you take a small good tasting meal or a large container of Stogel cat food?

Eh, don't push it. The stogel meals(?) are never large. They rarely take up more than just the bottom of a trash can.
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

Lol, true, that wasn't my point though.

Posting from First Class EWR-MIA requested the fruit plate (You can choose it online Ham and cheese or a fruit plate) It came a few slices of cut fruit (Cantelope Honeydew Pineapple plus 2 sliced strawberries) A chobini yogurt (has a hechsher) and granola without packaging..... Not a offical kosher meal but pretty good depending on your level of kashrus
Just flew JFK-MIA AA first. Got a hot Kosher Borenstein meal. Was surprised when the agent booked it and was even more surprised when it was served on board. Didn't used to be available. Checked with AA, it's available between MIA and all NYC airports.

Hot chicken in tomato sauce with couscous and vegetables. Cold sliced chicken breast with Israeli couscous, bread roll, matbucha salad and dessert. Not haute cuisine but very welcome.
