Guess not. So far, the only one I've seen that isn't a Bud clone or a Bud Light clone is the Goose Island 312.

Is February 1 still the date for the meal cutoff to move from 900 miles to 800 miles? I have a couple flights in February that are between 800-899 miles, so wondering if those flights will actually have a meal by that point. The reservation is still showing "Refreshments."

even if you're expecting a "meal", it won't be much.

Flew FC IAH-DEN yesterday (lunchtime) and had a really tasty Asian salad with tomato bisque soup. I mean the meal was really pretty good! Hope this is a trend that continues.

I wish they would update us on when we are going to get real food on UX.

Multi-million dollar investment in onboard food and beverage options

Beginning to think this is only one big head fake.
Been on many domestic flights since announcement and have seen one- that's right- one meal that can be considered new. Scones galore, crummy snack boxes, and the usual chicken beef atrocities. No improvement in UX Service as well so think it is one big hooey

I agree with the above post. It's been since August. Nothing has changed on UX. Only the lunches have really shifted and not so much. Once again, overpromising and significantly underdelivering.

United Express premium cabins:
Significant improvements on the way: While we can’t share the full details yet, let’s just say there will be a nice upgrade to premium cabin dining on United Express in 2015 by introducing fresh meal options.


How dare they take 17 days to roll it out into a route you you happened to be flying?

From my perspective, the 'snack plate' on mainline has actually gotten worse over the past few months.

I did not see any reference in the announcement regarding improvement of food in GlobalFirst. Has anyone flying GlobalFirst noticed any improvements in the food?

If my last NRT-SFO leg was any indication, it is actually a bit worse than some of the previous iterations...
