Boeing 787-9 with new Polaris seats
Meal: Dinner, breakfast

My first UA longhaul since March 2020. I was fortunate enough to have the new Polaris seats along with a rather empty mini-cabin. Only 3 passengers in the mini cabin: myself, a deadheading pilot, and a non-rev. Front cabin had around 16 passengers.

Menu:
  • Beef with potato
  • Salmon with spicy quinoa
  • Pasta ravioli
I chose the salmon which was decent. The sauce was similar to the spicy thai chicken noodle dish they used to serve.




Breakfast was an egg-white cheese sandwich I guess. It was terrible. I don't understand why they had to cut the breakfast/pre-arrival meals to this. I would have been perfectly fine with a cereal, yogurt, and fruit--all of which are pre-packaged or sealed anyways.

My flight departed on 1JAN2021, I haven't checked what the meals were last year, but I didn't find my pre-arrival meal an improvement at all.
