SFO-EWR PS flight also had the mango sorbet in the paper cup you get out of the freezer at 7-11 instead of the "signature sundae". Not terribly Premium Service.

Choice of beef or shrimp. Had the shrimp last week, chose the beef this week.

Last week they had ice cream sundae, but this week, only mango sorbet in a container.

BOS-ORD Dinner 4/21

I had the Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese. Huge portion, nicely browned crumbs on top, just a bit salty. But overall one of the best airline dishes I've had on United. I'd be overjoyed in this turned up in GF instead of dried out tough beef!

As other threads have stated they've stopped the sundaes while they fix the bowls.

FWIW TG F services ice cream in a paper cup (Haagen Das).

Maybe I'm behind but I didn't realize they started the retrofit on 737s. They looked like this?

IAD - LAX Lunch Flight

IAD - LAX
Lunch flight (12:45 pm departure)

Choices were salmon, cashew chicken, or a vegetarian option.

I chose the salmon - it was surprisingly good. It was moist and served with a lemon butter sauce with rice and vegetables.

There were also warmed nuts and a salad and breadstick (served before the meal). The salad was good - it was spring greens with grilled vegetables. I did not eat the dressing.

Desert was mango sorbet (which I skipped) and a chocolate chip cookie served about 45 minutes before landing. Good meal!

They're slimlining the 73Gs and installing the new F seats as they go. Appear to be nine of them flying around right now.

LAX - IAD Breakfast

LAX - IAD
Breakfast flight (9:21 am departure)

Choices were french toast souffle, omelet, or honey nut Cheerios.

First course was fruit plate, yogurt, and choice of croissant or cinnamon role. I had the cinnamon role - it was excellent. I also liked the two-course service of breakfast.

I had the omelet - it was in the top 10% of airline omelets that I have had - it was filled with provolone cheese and had sides of pepper slices and potatoes and sausage (which I did not eat).

A pretty decent job for breakfast

Do they have bigger TV Screens on the back of them for the DirecTV, or are the Economy sized like current 737 Premium Cabin?

I think they were the same size screen as before, but don't quote me on that as I didn't really watch anything.

SANEWR
DEP: 1610
EQP: 738
Meal: Dinner

Thanks to SFO delays, my SANSFO flt was going to miscnx to SFOSTL; came up with option to fly SANEWR overnite then EWRSTL today but first agent insisted she could only rebook my P class if P or Z class was available since she would have to charge me more since only F was available. HUCA finally got an agent who rebooked me with no issue.

PDB's consisted of a tray of water. FA took orders taken by hoping around and then front/back. Options by the time they got to me were spice-rubbed chicken or salmon. Choose the chicken and was presently surprised by overall quantity and quality. Enjoyed having a large salad and the watermelon/feta was kind of tasty although it would be nice if they served the salad as a separate course.....minus the lack of appetizer, it was vaguely reminiscent of the old EWR-West Coast transcon meals from pmCO.


And then there was this sad excuse for temporary sundae replacement


I suppose the effort should be noted, but surprised they couldn't round up something of a less institutional/school cafeteria quality.

What food on 9:35pm EWR-LAX?

What are the food offerings for the 9:35pm EWR-LAX departure in Business? I know that dinner is not served. Thanks.

The "Snack" service consists of a heated snack such as calzone or hamburger, served with a Godiva truffle for dessert, and a cranberry muffin as a pre-arrival service.

On the newer Boeings and Airbus yes, but this is one of the 737 with DirecTV, which requires a Seatback monitor, which is why I asked about the screen.
