American launched service from DFW to Seoul, Korea today. This is really exciting news because it’s not just a new route for American, this is also a new destination!
They’ll be serving the route with a 3 class configured 777-200. I met someone that works in the inflight services department that was responsible for planning the meal service on this new route. She told me that in their focus group tests Korean customers indicated a preference for stainless steel chopsticks over disposable wood or plastic ones, so that’s what they were going to offer on the route.
She also mentioned that they were developing a Korean menu for the route, but at the time it was still a work in progress so she didn’t have any details. Now that launch day is here and the menu has been finalized, I have some photos of items that will be offered in First and Business class.
