Are the Buy on Board snack boxes still a thing in long-haul Y? Thinking of going that route more often in 2018 if so, especially in lieu of the terrible arrival meal on the way back to the US.

Canadians do have it well, donít they?

No PQD requirement, lounge access with Gold Status, and better burgers and breakfast sandwiches.

Yah. But they also got Air Canada mostly so it is what it is.

Another view of the new burger, tastes pretty much the same. I'm disappointed that now there is finally enough ketchup to use with fries but the free fries have been eliminated.

But the burger is now cheaper by the exact cost that you can buy a side of chips for. So at least you're not paying the same for less...

For posterity to remind folks who don't get to sit up front what you get for breakfast and dinner on t.p.s. in early 2018...

01/30/18
SFO-BOS
E+ Breakfast: "Omelette or Pancakes"

Pancakes:




02/02/18
BOS-SFO
E+ Dinner: "Tortellini or Chicken Strips"

"Chicken Strips":




Notes:
1. Hurrah - blueberry yogurt instead of strawberry
2. Pancakes/omelette and chicken strips/tortellini are the same menu in E+ as last year (late august 2017 for pancakes/omelette as well as chicken strips/tortellini)

Route/Flight/Aircraft: DEN-LAX/UA1093/737-900
Departure/Length/Meal: 7:45 a.m./2:46/Breakfast

Stroopwafel and the not-bad Illy coffee; I wound up number two on the upgrade list but the flight was quite enjoyable anyway.


A bit tongue-in-cheek as I supplemented my breakfast with some United Club foraging: lemon poppyseed cake, yogurt with granola/pineapple/cranberries/brown sugar and a banana.

UA 100 SYD-IAH last night. I didn't bother with pictures but we got lunch choices of either cheese tortellini or chicken and rice. There was a light sauce on some of the chicken that I assume was an attempt at teriyaki. Lunch was followed by a small vanilla ice cream cup. Mid-flight snack was a small sandwich and breakfast before arrival was either yogurt with fruit or an egg-only omelette with a single sausage link.

Yes but as a 1K I got the fries for free, also its kettle chips now instead of fries.

1/28/18
UA1600, EWR-LAX
sCO 752


Choices were chicken or pasta. IIRC this was a Tandoori chicken, tasted good, brownie was excellent (moist and soft), fruit was good. Kind bars given out mid flight



Also here is a picture of the omelet, very tasty. I think its the best thing on the menu including lunch options.

How to open burger condiment packets?

Received my first bread, err I mean cheeseburger in 2018. Spent a number of minutes trying to open the ketchup, mustard and mayo packets - looked for cuts/notches, tried fold/refolding, brute force tear, plastic knife, etc.

Finally gave up and used a nail clipper to snip side notches to open.

Anyway, how are others opening the condiment packets? Am I missing something?
