UA 5601, YVR-SFO, a late morning flight aboard an E-175, which promised "breakfast" in the flight amenities.

Served a scone and a plate of fruit. A bit light for breakfast, more like a mid-morning snack.

UA727, SFO-IAD - a lunch flight on a sCO 757.

Choices were salmon with peppercorn sauce, a chicken dish, and paneer. When my seatmate asked what paneer was, the FA replied "tofu"

Salmon dish was pretty good.

No dessert served after the main course - no ice cream, gelato, or sorbet. Was it mis-catering or did the crew forget?

Four hours later, warm cookie served before landing.

You were on the flight and would know the answer - did you ask?

Some flight attendants call it quiche, so it's hard to know what your getting. Anyone else hate it?
I had the round spinach thing out of SFO and it was the best breakfast thing I'd had in a long time. Quite liked it!

I kept thinking that the dessert would come out in a while, as they thawed the ice cream, etc. Then I fell asleep (those sCO 757s are quite comfortable in BF). Then when I woke up, they were serving the cookies and I didn't think to ask about the ice cream.

1/11 #1904 EWR-PHX (Up in air as I type)

Choice of Roasted Red Pepper Quiche or Cinnamon French Toast Casserole with warm Vanilla Sauce.

Got the French Toast Casserole. Easily the BEST breakfast I have ever had on a plane. I would order it at a restaurant over and over. Hope it becomes a predominant option going forward for Breakfast choices.

UA 1060 RDU-SFO 06:26-09:37 737-800



Full PDB ^



Appetizer plate, a nice touch as this was separate from the rest of the meal.



Choices were waffles, cereal or this quiche. By the time they'd taken 1K and GS orders and gotten to me in 3A all that was left were quiches. It actually wasn't terrible (though I always add hot sauce to such things).

One note: I do wish they'd have a snack basket later in the flight. We were in the air close to five and a half hours. Something to nibble on later would have been appreciated.

Didn't want to start a new thread if we were given wrong info but anyone on a flight out of ORD today? We waited 45 minutes for catering (on top of an hour delay) and were then told no flights out of ORD today were getting any food in any cabin.

4.5 hours to the west coast and we have water, ice, and sodas. Flight was furthered delayed when people were allowed off the plane to go get food.

What a nightmare. People with connections are fit to be tied.

There is an "issue" with catering at ORD which is being discussed in this thread

Just got off TPA EWR in F today.

Had a very nice meal - choice of chicken with rice and corn and black beans, with a side plate of avocado with salsa, and a salad with grapefruit and mandarin oranges. Rather nice, and satisfying for a domestic F airline meal. Warm cookies to follow.

Full PDB and a great crew who never sat down once, and kept continuous drinks coming.

An early arrival made for an overall, great flight.


Other choice for dinner was a salad with salmon, which my neighbor had and it looked rather high quality.

That French Toast souffle (or maybe casserole, if that's what they are calling it) is fantastic. I had it EWR-PBI last year and was extremely pleased.

LOL at the description of paneer. If your seatmate ordered that, they must have thought it the heaviest, CHEESIEST tofu they ever ate.

DEN-LAX
737-800
Breakfast


PDB of choice ^

After takeoff, hot towel, followed by drink of choice.

My Vodka/OJ came with a glass of water as well ^

Meal choices were the French Toast Soufflé or a Quiche.

I went with the souffle and found it decent enough. Some extra butter would have been nice. It was served in a bowl.

Also on the tray was a fruit plate with wilted grapes and strawberries, 2 slices of melon, and a slice of pineapple.

There was also an "Uptown Farms Greek Yogurt" on the tray.

Re-fills were constant throughout the flight from this young, attentive, and professional crew.

LAX-DEN
Boeing 737-800
Dinner


PDB of Choice! ^

Once in the air, hot scented towel followed by warm mixed nuts and drink of choice.

Meal choices were the Jambalaya, Lentil Chili, or a pasta dish.

I went with the Jambalaya and thought it was EXCELLENT. It had just the right amount of flavor and spices. A breadstick and butter were on the tray, as well as a delicious side salad with greens, feta cheese, and melons with balsamic vinaigrette dressing.

Drinks were re-filled constantly despite a somewhat bumpy flight.

Warm delicious baked on-board cookies served on plates prior to landing.

Simply put, UA's offerings on this route blow the competition out of the water. ^^^
