Ah yea - forgot it was "int'l" so you get a meal. If it was domestic at 9pm, you'd be OOL.

Or on a 1600 mi flight in UX when the snack boxes in coach are more filling than first =P But hey ,as of 5 months ago, they were "planning" to serve something better in UX F, no updates since!

keitherson, if you're still looking for info, can confirm that ORD-BOS is still a meal flight at the right hours. Your vegetarian wife would've been out of luck as our dinner options (UA1626, ORD-BOS, 12/27 were a chicken salad or a warm "Bruschetta sandwich." No photos, unfortunately, but I chose the "Bruschetta sandwich" and found it absolutely delicious. I did not receive a PDB on this flight, but I was standing by and expect I would've had I boarded with group 1 rather than after group 5.

Earlier, I received PDB choice of orange juice or water on UA4907, BWI-EWR and UA4894, EWR-PIT, both operated by Republic, with snack mix on the second flight. Mainline UA1530, PIT-ORD offered PDB and a few passes of the snack basket.

has the snack for EWR-ORD been upgraded as well or is it the usual cous cous mozzarella thing?

Worse Food for Leisure Markets?

I just flew MTJ-ORD on Saturday, and I was seated in F. The meal listed was lunch, so in line with the new premium cabin catering upgrades I expected a choice of salad or sandwich served with soup.

The FA indicated that only the repulsive chipotle chicken wrap had been catered. This was served with a small bag of Cape Cod potato chips, a packet of flavored mayonnaise, a sealed plastic package of Dole papaya and pineapple pieces, and no soup. All, except for the chips, inedible in my estimation.

This is a nearly 100% leisure route with no competition. Is there an even more sub-standard catering program for such flights?

Whoops, I didn't get around to uploading my pictures in time to post in the 2014 thread (now closed). Here are my last couple of domestic meals.

12/21 IAH-SFO
Boeing 757-300
9:05pm departure

Snack - chilled Southwestern chicken (no choice)


Really liked this snack - chicken was tender yet flavorful. I thought it was quite substantial.

12/30 SFO-IAH
Boeing 737-900
10:55am departure

Lunch - roast beef sandwich (other choice was the strawberry fields chicken salad)


I've already had the strawberry chicken salad, and wanted to try something new. The taste was decent, with cheddar and a horseradish sauce. But a lot of the beef was very chewy. Mushroom soup was good. And I know people have commented on being served bread with bread, but I did appreciate having bread to have with the soup!

It is a very, very brown meal. Wish it had some kind of green to liven things up a little, even a sprig of parsley somewhere!
