Embraer ERJ-175, Dinner


Back on United for this route due to mix of price/schedule concerns, and I continue to be quite impressed by the domestic food improvements. UX dining is all cold plates, and I'm happy to report they seem to manage some variety of palatable food without an onboard oven.


Main course and cookie, plated together. This was unhelpfully described as the "salad with chicken on the side" (no further info when I asked what kind of salad), but the other option was the Buffalo chicken wrap, so I decided to roll the dice on the anonymous salad. I was very pleasantly surprised! Spring greens, a tart-ish semi-hard cheese (to my chagrin I could not identify it, though it seemed to be in the general region of feta if a bit creamier), mixed onions, pomegranate vinaigrette dressing, and yes, chicken on the side. Served along with a bowl of fresh fruit. The salad was fresh and well thought out. Looks like they might have changed cookie vendors, as this was not the usual Otis Spunkmeyer. I forgot what it was, but I thought it was actually an improvement. And, of course, full PDB and attentive refills, the key to keeping me happy.

All in all, a very pleasant onboard experience that made me forget about the 2h delay. The E75 remains an excellent plane
I'm on this flight Monday evening. Glad to see it's good. I have to say I've always had good service with Skywest crews on UX. A little worried about the delays this flight has been having, though, because if I miss the last SFO-LAX flight of the night Monday I'm going to be one very unhappy camper!
