Its a red eye Saturday night, so not within 24 hours. I can't find the option. It either moved or is missing.

Same sandwiches were on offer RSW-IAD a couple weeks ago. Had to request an extra stack of cocktail napkins to clean up the greasy mess afterwards. My seatmate kinda gave me a look like I can't believe you're going to try to eat that thing. I was hungry. :shrug:

Then these "snack" flights should also come with a quadruple bypass included in the price of the ticket.

Damn, you got fruit cupped. Just when you thought the fresh fruit bowls were back permanently.

EWR-LAX this morning in J.
Mid flight I asked for a snack, like a chocolage bar or nuts.
We dont have anything
You dont have anything sweet?
no we dont

3 mins later she came back with a cookie
This is from the crews meal
I refused it saying that I didnt want to take their food but she insisted and said write to United

These nasty cups better not be back...although I expect dilanesp and HNLbasedFlyer will approve of the change.

UA has to pinch pennies and customers have to suffer since UA's always on the verge of bankruptcy..

Some of us consider it most fortunate indeed that the delicious Dole Fruit Cup is once again offered.

🌴 🎶 💚 🍾 ✈️

I love to guess how many sumptuous cherry fragments will be in the cup. This was a favorite airborne dining pastime of my children before elementary school. Whoever guessed closest might get my cup. 🙂 If I won, I would savor each bite even more!
