The last unconverted B747: UA SFO-ORD Business upper deck and some good eats!

I learned of the last unconverted B747 of UA on FT. I heard that they had pulled it out of the desert airplane graveyard and brought it back to service for domestic routes. I wanted to try it. 15A was the "prime" seat, as I remember, in the upper deck. We gave it a go, and it was very nice. The plane did not seem old at all, other than the bad paint.

We flew the B767 lie flats to, and the B747 old configuration fro. The food, surprisingly, was quite good. I think UA took a page from CO's playbook with the soup. The soup adds a lot to the meal, no question.

We also took advantage of some fine dining in Chicago, so we've included some shots of the food there. Molecular gastronomy, as they call it, seems to be much bigger in Chicago than it does in San Francisco. They have some incredible cuisine, and I've included some shots of the very inventive food that they have there. Chicago definitely has some great food. It is a wonderful city.

Hope you enjoy it my video trip report!
