Live from Polaris flight right now...
 
On UA 49 BOM-EWR right now (223 pm NY Time) im Seat 4K. Happy to answer any questions (till I fall asleep since 1253 am in India time...).

I requested pjs as soon as I boarded. Not many people knew about it and wasn't proactively offered. People around me saw me get it and also requested it. Didn't see anyone else ask for it. Same for slippers.
The mattress pads are rolled up in overheads and also weren't offered but can be grabbed by anyone.
The gel pillow also not given out and I'm only one I can see now with it.

The pre-flight drink was given in cool plastic cup with a tray with a stand and with a piece of chocolate (bonbon style).

I did get the bear...

Trying to attach pic but not sure how to...

Polaris In-flight Experiences
 
With Polaris becoming live, it seems time to create a few separate threads

even in F class the Flight Attendants did not offer mattress pads. Reality is Polaris is NOT going to work unless UA can get the FA's to do a bit more work.:mad:

If you are talking Global First...there have many reports of inconsistent offering. Some have, some haven't. On my recent GF, they offered before we even departed.

Yes my problem with UA is mostly the FAs. Even most of the good ones treat you like they are your mom and are waiting for you to go live on your own

4k first or biz?

The burning question on everyone's mind is whether you can get the cheese, sundae, AND dessert, or if you have to pick from one of the three.

So the slippers are only given on request? Wonder if they are boarding only a limited number like PJs

Will let u know...

omg you should ask for the full wine tasting then quiz them on the different types. then have two different ones with dinner before ordering and change it up. just be as high maintenance and informed as possible.

and ask for as many grill cheese as you can. but that you want it for an entree. then the entree for desert. with cheese. and a sundae. and then a moscow mule but extra vodka just put a splash of the juice in it. then more cheese. then henney+grand marnier.

that's what i'd do.

^ I'm extremely skeptical of Polaris given UA's deep-rooted human factors problems.

So you'd suggest doing everything within one's power to make Polaris go nuclear? :p
