Mango Sorbet
Shouldn't a transcon dinner flight get the sundae rather than the mango sorbet?

And I have no idea where the best place to post this is but SPRITE ZERO IS BACK!!! I just happened to look at the beverage options in the January Hemispheres and it was listed again. I asked for it and got it.... only one flight, so we'll see how consistent it is, but I'm so happy to have a diet, caffeine-free soda option back. The Dasani lime was not cutting it with me.
This happened about a month ago (quietly) and I was excited as you.

Nice! ^

Thanks for posting this as I would have never known otherwise.

And the Dasani lime thing is gross.

Overnight flights - 'lightened' snacks?

My wife flew redeye LAX - ORD a few days ago and got only a bag of crackers. I thought I remembered cheese and grapes or something like that as the 'refreshments' on these (~4hr) flights—i.e. not quite a meal but still relatively substantial. Is crackers the new normal or do I misremember?

That used to be the case, but as part of the meal enhancements last year UA had to make up for the additions somewhere and the mid-con redeyes suffered by losing their snack. (AA and DL also don't serve snacks on similar routes).

Does anyone know what the "quiche" thing is they have been serving recently? It's horrible. I'm not talking about the pie shaped quiche made with eggs, but rather the round thing that's filled with a cooked spinach? or something.. Some flight attendants call it quiche, so it's hard to know what your getting. Anyone else hate it?

Mrs. Transportprof had the spinach pie/quiche ex-HNL earlier this month and enjoyed every bite. Cleaned her plate! Perhaps the preparation varies from flight kitchens, or there is quite a range of tastes for airline food!

1400-1600hrs

Snack flight-

Cold snack plate of Chicken, some sort of salad (maybe coleslaw?), a chunk of white cheese, crackers, and a Lindt chocolate.

Was not too bad for a cold plate, the cheese was bleh. Overall was nice to have something (especially since I had not eaten yet).

This thing?


I think it was introduced to me as 'a spinach soufflé' (other option: 'French toast soufflé' ...) last month, although 'pie' as transportprof has branded it seems more accurate.

I didn't mind it at all. It has a bit less egg flavour and a lot less salt than the quiche wedge, but I might choose the round over the wedge.

Ancillary note: I think I smelled/spotted new coffee (i.e. not the brown water pictured above) last week HNL - SFO. I did not sample, however.

Cool - that looks more like something you'd get on a European carrier on short haul. Nice presentation.

Yes, that's the one. I've never heard it called spinach soufflé, but that does describe it better than quiche IMHO. It was funny when I first tried it, I was sitting next to a United Pilot, and both of us hated it. Maybe it was the kitchen it came from, I might have to give it another try. I just wished I knew if they were serving that or the egg pie shaped quiche. Seems like the last month and a half of flying, breakfast has only been the quiche or French toast soufflé.

By 'the quiche' I guess you mean the real actual quiche? UA should just give the entrees codes so we know what we're talking about. 'X3C for breakfast this morning, please.'

Late-December flight was the wedge for me too, so maybe the round is out of rotation for now. But it may come back, as I think I had the actual quiche in October or November before that.
