American Airlines said Tuesday it plans to offer complimentary meals in coach on select transcon routes.

Beginning in May, the carrier will introduce the free meals on flights between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and both San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Passengers on earlier flights will receive a continental breakfast while those on later flights will receive a sandwich wrap, chips, and dessert. The menu will include a vegetarian option as well as a fruit-and-cheese plate.

American is the only airline offering three-class service on these routes that includes a first-class cabin with private lie-flat seats in a 1-1 configuration as well as fully lie-flat seats in business class. The airline operates these flights with specially-configured Airbus A321T aircraft.

Recently, Delta Air Lines announced plans to provide meals in coach on its transcon flights starting this month.
