I think the main difference is that Snack is a single-tray 1.5 course service with a plated main and a chocolate candy for dessert. There have been a mix of hot and cold plated Snacks recently.

FA told me that the caterer in DEN has hygiene issues like listeria so that was why no food was loaded

It was a flight to/from MEX. Even on my IAH-MEX flight (lunch time) which is about 2h long, I was offered a decent meal (beef, rice, salad, cake). A flight IAH-ORD that takes 2.5h has a crappy snack instead.

Crossing a boarder is a pretty silly standard for determining meal service; but by no means is this limited to UA.

Yes, for the flight to MEX, it's listed as "Business", not just First. Very good service overall. Most of the people up front were going to the Pats - Raiders game this past weekend, so there were a lot of cocktails ordered for that 7am flight

Regarding the Moscow Mule question, yes, it should be available on all mainline UA aircraft, and it's their "preferred cocktail" too. In Economy I believe it's $12, but states that it's two servings.

Moscow Mule offered for a couple years at least.

Same disgusting options as the past few months on IAH-LGA this morning. The kale egg thing or a "greek" protein plate. FA seemed embarrassed to even have to offer these options. At least they had cinnamon rolls.

Tasteless turkey ham croissant -- with 5 small pieces of fruit on SFO-MSP the other day. I did email in about my dissatisfaction with the meal both to 1KVoice and survey.

Food issues ex sfo

Taste and choices aside, has anyone else had food/stomach issues ex sfo in J? My last 2 Polaris flights to cdg and lhr both resulted in me hitting the ground with sick stomach. I usually never have this, and never had problem with united or long haul flights in the past. I know this is all subjective, but curious if other have anecdotal experiences as well? And it's only been with sfo catering....never the return.

MSY-IAH UA 755 19 Nov Seat 2A


Post-boarding CPU due to a checked-in no-show. Surprised they even offered a muffin given short duration of flight. Prosecco kept re-filled throughout by attentive FA.

Great Service

I flew EWR BUF on Thanksgiving - 737-700. It's been years since mainline flew that route. Nice surprise. Also only booked 4/12 in F which was another treat. Y was about 95% full.

Excellent service by FA. Efficient pre-departure drinks. Almost ready to push back, and they noticed a problem with the front landing year - tire needed to be changed. Everybody off the plane. 30 minutes later, we board again, and FA had second rounds of pre-departure drinks on our seats. Couldn't they all be this way? Didn't even had to ask. He managed to service 3 drinks mid-air on this short 56 minute flight, and Y had a full beverage service. Good FA"s are out there! He also offered the snack basked numerous times.
