2021 Let's Eat - Economy Class (Domestic & International)

I didn't get to sample UA Y food too much in 2020 but it seems like there are new entrees in 2021.

DEN-FRA
Tricolor Vegetable Quinoa Skillet with White Meat Chicken and Queso Fresco, this was really tasty just like eating enchilladas. I'd give it a 9/10


Tricolor Vegetable Quinoa


Spinach and Mushroom Manicotti with Veggie Bolognase Sauce, this was also quite tasty, there is a lot of cheese filling as a result it was more filling than past vegetarian pasta entrees, I'd rate it a 8/10



Breakfast was typical Europe arrival but a little downgraded, consists of yogurt and biscotto, used to be yogurt and a warm bread.

Amazingly, both of those look better to me than a lot of the current Polaris mains -- certainly better than any of the current Polaris arrival meals.

According to MatthewLAX BoB is coming back to long haul Hawaii and PTS routes, boxes got rebranded too, same items as normal though. Maybe by Jan 1 we'll get meals in PTS again.

After perusing the link, it remains unclear what the abbreviation "PTS" indicates.

UA originally called the enhanced EWR<>SFO/LAX flight operations, Premium Service or PS
UA later changed the term to (Premium) Transcontinental Service (PTS)

They just couldn't go all the way to PTSD for their premium trans-con flights.
