The SFO Rotunda club has more than opined above, and considerably more than Pre COVID.

By the way, the Polaris meal is also offered to PremPlus, which is great!

It's like they're experimenting to see how much they can cut before it impacts revenue.

…hoping no one will notice. Had breakfast ORD-IAH, sweet potato-scrambled egg-chicken crumble hash thing and fresh fruit. Only after finishing and arranging the plates on the tray did I notice there was a clear plastic plate that would usually have bread/muffin/cookie but was instead just an empty plate. Coincidentally, a FA collected the tray before I got a pic. Good service from the crew with multiple drink rounds so I dont think it was them messing it up.

Usually 1 or 2 soups, cookies/brownies, some light snacks like cheese cubes/celery sticks/pita chips/hummus. Nothing substantial. Most of my experience in there has been before red-eyes, so not sure if their offerings are more limited then, but I haven't been impressed so far. I've found that even the new AS Lounge has better quality food than the AC.

Yep, the JFK FL is in an entirely different league compared with what UA offers at NYC.

Agreed. It was more of a rhetorical question for work2play that felt United Club was "gas station" food. The United Club offerings are not amazing, but they are definitely better than what Admiral's Club has.

That has been my experience as well. Again, just pointing out that while not amazing, United Club is better than Admiral's Club.

UA 1991 EWR-SFO 1029-1359 767-300



PDB of water only. A little disappointing, I was on two other flights in F this weekend which had more options



Nice to see full glassware back



Choice of Thai Chicken or vegetable ravioli. A little disappointing there are no menus and dessert is served with the meal. AA has menus and full desserts back.



Bread heated in the plastic bag is...something.



Snacks on the forward bulkhead



Pre landing snacks of fruit and cheese plate or hummus was a nice touch. Overall a good flight.

Snack basked was MUCH better than that on the IAH-HNL flight last Thursday. Was basically the pre covid long haul Hawaii snack basket. In addition, the purser came by with the snack basket 3-4 times between the two meals.

and hopefully the new EWR mega UC delivers when it opens.

I think PL should stay long haul INTL F/C only, though I recognize others disagree

She only gave me one for both drinks so I thought it would look a bit incomplete, but here :

LAX-IAH
UA1442 12/8 12:55AM
Boeing 757-300
Dinner


Choice of water, water, or water for PDB
Dinner was Chicken or Italian ragu, crew was pretty attentive but got a bit of a later start on service than I would’ve liked on this flight.
