We made it to SFO after 3 hours on the tarmac due to lightning storms, making it seem like a trans-Atlantic flight. So forgive me if bleariness creeps into this post and the next.
The meal aboard Virgin America was a bit better than similar ones offered by United and American; with the hummus and chips pack, there were two pieces of raw broccoli, 1 cauliflower floret, two blanched pea pods, some red pepper and carrot strips, a bit of radicchio and leaf lettuce, and a scoop of baba ghanoush. (Just so you don’t think I’m a total health nut, I ordered the chocolate bar – a 65% cocao with nibs.)
Jim had the Mandarin chicken wrap, which was slightly sweet, but good.
The wine was Wente chard and cab – so-so. But I was happy they offered seltzer (which has no sodium) rather than just club soda (which does).
