Can you get normal eggs for once though. Like scrambled or even back to the omelette than the hockey pucks that every fast food joint seems to be peddling these days.

Exactly - not everyone likes egg whites, some of us detest them. It's not like using the yolk costs extra.

I had the egg white bites a few days ago LAX-HNL - edible but was not a fan. Also with they could just do regular scrambled eggs or a cheese omelet (although UA usually does with mushrooms which is a non-starter for me). Really wish LAX had a Klein's Deli like SFO for decent take out option.

I wish UA would bring the southwestern omelet. I loved that.

One of the best breakfasts United had. It was also great in Y as a BOB option.

Needing to fly DFW-LAX first week of Jan. Will be in F. Choice to connect via IAH or DEN. Both flights to LAX will have dinner or lunch. Which option to go with? Leaving toward DEN dinner bc DFW-DEN would get a snack box as well?

ORD-SJU

Two options last week from ORD-SJU:

Egg white bites with chicken sausage and potato. Pretty good, not usually a sausage fan, but liked it very much.

Kids ate waffles and loved it.

No PDB offered but there was glassware LAX-EWR high J 763.
Chicken with painted grill marks, puck ala polenta, broccolini, and ?brown sauce?.
Proactive refills. Second choice was mystery ravioli.

oh great we are back to the 2010 post merger catering alignment chicken with grill marks. CoVid aside, it never ceases to amaze me how in 2021 someone in the UA C-suite honestly thinks this is an acceptable meal to serve especially given the market.

SJU-EWR this morning had four choices up front: Waffles, Egg and Kale Quiche, Egg Bites with Sausage, or a Breakfast Sandwich. These were all served i\with fresh fruit, Chobani yogurt, and a single wrapped lemon biscotto. Shocked to see so many choices. I asked the FA what was going on. He said they initially catered only 10 meals for 39 seats and when they called they brought a ton of extra stuff. The plane was being used for charters last night and PDBs were served in full-size blue Solo cups. He also offered bottles of Gatorade or water that were left from the charter. If only UA catering could always be this stocked and with so many choices.

Nice! Hope you were able to avail yourself of a multitude of breakfasts!

probably chicken katsu or a veggie dish for dinner, than either eggs/sausage/rice or a cold plate for breakfast. Think the routes to ORD get the same as IAH

For dinner, the choices were chicken katsu and cauliflower croquette on Dec 18. Believe I also overheard there was a pasta so could have been three choices.

Fruit and cheese for breakfast. I forget if there was a second choice.

Catering was lackluster with choices running thin, and plastic utensils.

Thanks. Will be interesting to see how the new Maui ban on plastic utensils affects catering.
