airline to Hawaii that still serves a meal

Can someone tell me which airline still serves a meal on their flights from the mainland? I remember seeing an article several months ago, and I think only one carrier still does. The rest do not, which is deplorable for such a long flight! Can anyone help?? thanks.

I know Hawaiian and Continental serve free meals. United has food for sale- sandwiches, pasta etc.

Aloha Airlines serves a breakfast or lunch sandwich which is better than nothing and also serves warm chocolate cookies and milk prior to landing. They are my favorite airline to take to the islands.

Hawaiian Air also does a great job with entertainment (headphones cost the usual token fee). They have various interesting TV-style travel-log programs running about "the Islands" and several Hawaiian and surfing classic music stations on the audio.

I also recommend Hawaiian Airlines, they are fantastic. Choice of hot meal or a nice sandwich with chips. They will first come by selling snacks (boxes of candy, etc), which was nice, but then will hand out a nut mix for free. Then come the drinks and then the meal. Once that is picked up they start the movie. As Suze mentioned, before the movie starts, the video entertainment is all about the islands. It really gets you in the mood for your vacation!
We really enjoyed flying with them and will do so on any future trips to Hawaii. If you're not in the areas that Hawaiian flys from, find a cheap flight to one of their cities and go from there. That's what we did and it saved us a ton of money.
Oh, also my parents flew continental and said they got free meals.
