Yup - that's the old reliable CO cheeseburger.

Looks like the gumbo soup.

i know Iíve 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!

I actually enjoyed the chicken tortilla and would prefer it over some things they've been serving as of late as a side. The burger too.

That burger looks a lot like those frozen cheeseburgers they have at Costco.

~9:30PM EWR-SFO/LAX "Snack"

Does anybody have any recent experience with the offering in J on the ~9:30PM EWR departures to LAX/SFO? United.com lists it as "snack".

Dec 14 AUS-SFO 1727

Catering has taken a real downward turn. Only two options. 1 hot, 1 cold. The hot was Mac and cheese and the cold was salad with salmon. No warm nuts served. Just packaged nuts.

I thought the US3 were focusing on domestic flying and experience.

They were.
And then, two months later, they weren't.

Remember the new domestic F seats? Remember the hummus at the UC?

This week's flights:

ORD-IAH 7:30am departure. Listed as Snack flight.
Choice between Honey Nut Cheerios and Egg White sandwich on sourdough. I picked the Cheerios - the size of the portion was consistent with old breakfasts served on this route, just no breakfast breads.

IAH-LAX, 6:30pm departure. Dinner flight.
Choices again Buffalo Mac & Cheese and Salmon Salad. Got the salmon again - I still like this one.

LAX-ORD 6:30am departure. Breakfast flight.
Choice between “vegetable calzone” or salmon protein plate. I actually quite like the turkey/hummus protein plate, so picked the salmon protein plate. Not bad - smoked salmon. Got a choice between biscuits and cinnamon rolls.
