the EWR club with showers had eggs and scone triangles this morning at 8, among other 'new' things. today is the first time i've flown since april, so i didn't realize the toasters were pulled.

do people really eat untoasted bagels?

All the time, when they're fresh.

Unfortunately the bagel sticks I've encountered have been several days away from fresh. For all the improvements in the food offering, UA needs to rethink the toaster decision.

Probably the first thing on Oscar's agenda after 90 days.

And BOS doesn't offer oatmeal or hard-boiled eggs after 8am.
As noted in my earlier post, I was at BOS UC and before 8am and no sign of hard-boiled eggs.

Did someone say here that bagels (as in oval) are back and if so they are bigger? The ones before were even smaller than the tiny Lenders bagels. I agree about the sticks they are hard. They probably won't bring the toasters back for liability issues. You would have to work at cutting the bagel {stick} pretty hard longways to cut it in half. This would result in injuries possibly. For the time being I just use the {stick} to scoop up cream cheese and consume.

Not me and I've given up on the Cold Bagel Sticks too.

2 EWR clubs have showers. I assume you mean the C3 and not A club.

correct. my badd.

BOS had "full size" (think lenders, not a more robust deli/bakery bagel) bagels this morning in addition to plain sticks. EWR C3 had plain and 'everything' bagel sticks. i don't think there were any regular bagels at EWR.

EDIT: the little toaster lives on at HNL.

MCO Club has the new food

Just wanted to report from my pass through late this morning,

The MCO club has the updated food spread, although it is more limited then the other hub UC's I have been to. I observed hummus, peppers, cheese, soup, and olives on one side, and then on the other side of the glass partition it was cookies, whole fruit, and crackers. So there doesn't appear to be the grain salad, brownie brittle, or the breads. Although maybe it just rolled out so they are working the kinks out, or maybe they intended to keep the spread limited.

Regardless, a nice change from the packaged snacks. And, thankfully, a well placed sneeze guard is over the food.

5 am. CLE. No berries yuck raisins instead. Two flavors of yoghurt. Plain or vanilla way too sweet If I didn't have a lifetime membership, I'd never buy one for this.

Breakfast menu scaled back at IAD

New breakfast menu this morning at IAD D8 club:
Oatmeal gone - replaced with something like cream-of-rice.
Brown sugar gone - replaced with dark raisins (in addition to golden raisins and honey).
Scones gone - replaced with cheap croissants.
Bagel sticks gone - replaced with various cake slices (not too bad).
Strawberries/blueberries gone - replaced with some sort of fruit cocktail.
Hard boiled eggs gone.
No signs in front of the various items.

A "change you will like"?

Well that's certainly not a good sign. I hope that was a one-off anomaly. Looks like they right back where they were before.

Hi everyone,

Today we’re beginning a seasonal rotation of the United Club complimentary fresh food menus at our hubs. The menu launching today features more autumnal produce, hearty soups, and other seasonal items. We continue to progressively introduce a version of the previous menu at our line stations, and starting next year we’ll be introducing a new menu at all clubs with each season.

Here’s what you might see in our hub locations in the new rotation:

Morning:
  • Greek vanilla yogurt with fruit salad featuring pineapple chunks, sweet honeydew and cantaloupe chunks, and crisp red seedless grapes
  • Sliced hard boiled eggs with assorted toppings including bacon bits, minced red onion and capers
  • Cream of rice with golden and dark raisins
  • Assorted croissants and pound cakes

Afternoon:
  • Salami nuggets, sweet capicola, panino meats and assorted cheeses including gouda, Muenster and Swiss
  • Monthly soup rotation with assorted artisan bread and wheat crackers:
  • Corn chowder with chicken
  • Butternut squash
  • Tuscan style white bean with chicken
  • Fresh cut zucchini, yellow squash, cherry tomato medley
  • Monthly fresh leafy greens salad rotation with assorted artisan bread and wheat crackers
  • Dressed kale leaf salad with carrots and raspberry vinaigrette
  • Dressed spinach leaf salad
  • De-constructed wedge salad
