We had the option of salmon and rice or chicken and rice. My wife and I both choose the chicken (sorry we didn't take a photo) but it was a substantial piece of chicken with a white coconut/light curry sauce with basmati rice and a zucchini/tomato mix for the vegetable. All in all a decent meal.

We then were offered a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie after the dinner.

Lunch on DEN-IAD 1/1

1/1/16
DEN-IAD
UA 652
1550 departure
B737-900ER

Choice of chicken sandwich or chicken salad.

Rather curt and unfriendly FA took PDB orders and seemed pretty unhappy about it, especially when a young girl couldn't decide. Meal orders taken front to back with - what is your first choice after take off chicken sandwich or chicken salad then onto the next person "and you?"

Nice salad with breaded chicken served on the side with a bowl of fruit. Cookies distributed after trays were collected. Sandwich was rather large and served with a plate of grapes and small salad. Sandwich also had arugula, mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce (according to my son).

ORD-IAH
11am Lunch
767-300ER 2-class


Hot Towels, PDB, nuts

Choices: Chicken with rice or Salad with Salmon

I went with Chicken with rice. It was good, wish there was more chicken though. No dessert. I was hoping for at least a cookie but never happened.

ORD-DEN, 1/1 7:45 pm departure.

Two choices for dinner -- mushroom risotto (with peas and asparagus mixed in) or a southwest style chicken breast (chicken, southwest tomato-based sauce, white rice with some black beans mixed in, and a side of broccolini). Both came with a pretzel roll and side salad that was mixed greens with grapefruit & mandarin oranges and balsamic dressing. Husband and I got one of each -- the risotto was actually pretty darn delicious. As a vegetarian option, it is way better than the spinach ravioli we had on the way out, but not quite as good as the paneer dish. The chicken was fine -- above average but still a chicken and rice dish. No pics this time, sorry.

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.

IAD-SEA
UA 1221
0810 departure
B737-900ER

Choice of waffle, cereal, fruit and yogurt or quiche. Looks like each meal started with fruit and yogurt. Orders taken front to back and waffles were gone very quickly. Drinks were refilled the entire flight and cookies offered just before landing.

Biscuits were offered with butter and jelly, I was in the last row so not sure if another bread was offered as well.

PHL-SFO
UA 653
6AM departure
B737-800

Choice of cereal or quiche, accompanied by fruit and yogurt. I think a waffle was also on offer, but it disappeared after chosen by both 1A & 1B (I was in row 2.) Orders were taken front to back. Biscuits and cinnamon rolls were offered; I had to ask for butter and jelly.

I had the quiche, which was served with potatoes, sausage and grilled asparagus. Everything was overcooked, with the quiche dry but edible and the sausage and asparagus had an unpleasant charred taste; I tasted a small piece of sausage and one asparagus and passed on the rest.

Cookie offered just before landing.

Good crew with frequent beverage refills and minimal announcements given the very early AM departure.

SFO-DEN 5:25am

Choice of egg scramble or oatmeal with fruit.

Scramble had some sausage, pepper, onions and like a broccoli gratin thing. Eggs were lackluster and consistency crap the rest of the stuff had some good flavor.

My Dad next to me got the oatmeal which looked a little dry, came with cranberries on it and then a larger plate of fruit and yogurt.

Requalified for silver in 2016 after being demoted in 2015, was pleasantly surprised with a rare CPU on my first flight in 2016!

1/3, SFO-DEN 7:50pm departure

PDB, warm towel and nuts, dinner choices were "chili" or "chicken jambalaya" entrees. Chose the chili, which was actually pretty tasty. Warm chocolate chip cookie to finish.

Business (SFO-YVR)
A320
1845-2115hrs (+\-)
No PDB (boooooo)
Listed as dinner flight, I'll update as we go: so far already running about 45 min behind.

I'll post pics as they come....

Warm nuts and Gin & Tonic



Choice of lentil chili or cold (salad) glass asian noodles and cold roast beef (I picked the salad)



Asked for some red wine, was brought the bottle of 2013 Entwine merlot ($9.99 on google shopping)



Salad was good, wine was good, not bad for a 2.5 hour flight (although a PDB would have been nice)
