LAX-BOS is not marketed as premium t-con. So meals will be per the listings for non-premium t-cons. https://www.united.com/web/en-US/con...st/dining.aspx

DFW-IAD Poor Excuse for ďDinnerĒ

DFW-IAD op by Mesa E175 1700 departure
i know I’ve gotten a real meal on this flight before.
No choice, just this cheese tray from BOB and other packaged crap, truly sad...

FA did drinks and meals first THEN hot towels and THEN nuts!

Given that spread I don't blame the FA for wanting to end on a high nte.

Guessing the inbound came from DEN and so sandwich/wrap/salad wasn't available and they had to provide the BOB selections.

Nope, I asked the FA, inbound was the 1200 departure from IAD which had normal lunch service

Love the upside down casserole dish as a base for the fake cheese product.

Choice of Egg White Quiche or Protein Plate:


Excuse the dark pic; though I'm sure everyone is familiar with this dish by now. This tasted pretty decent to me. Fruit was ripe and sweet but cinnamon roll was half burnt

Buffalo Mac & Cheese with Chicken or Salmon Salad:




Fairly tasty.

Choice of Quinoa with Salmon or Ravioli Pasta. I was sitting in 2F and the pasta was gone by 2B. A lady and her 3 kids snagged up all.


The salmon was excellent and actually made the quinoa flavorful! AS need to take notes and serve their quinoa warm with some type of sauce. Warm cookies for dessert.

Finally back to some variety on IAH-LGA this morning.
Egg sandwich or oatmeal with fruit. So much better then the awful protein plate and even more awful egg white pastry kale thing.

The grits portion seems a bit small to me.

A while ago I was flying with my family and our ~5.30 flight from MCO got delayed for a few hours from equipment trouble (waiting for an incoming plane they could use). Everyone got $20 vouchers, but only just as the few food outlets closed. We went to buy $80 of candy and chocolate from the newsstand to bring home ...

On the plane they were reluctant to serve the food because it's been sitting warm (or not warm enough) for a number of hours since the first plane, we got the food anyway and it was fine. The FA was great. On landing we each had a ~$250 voucher.

what's old is new again

LAX-IAH lunch offered the CO-era cheeseburger plate with small side salad and plated turtle cheesecake - I swear I had this meal countless times on Continental between FLL and IAH or EWR over 10 years ago. As a plus, the cheese was on the side and not burned into the plate, on the downside the bun was burned into the plate. Once excavated loose, the burger tasted quite delicious so it seems the recent quantity and quality cutbacks were somewhat mitigated.
