Are the LatAm non-Polaris business routes (I'm thinking in particular of IAH-SJU) just the same two choices as domestic F?

This is why I've been spending more money with United instead of Delta. I will take a free upgrade on Delta if offered. If paying, i want better service and United provides it.
yes Delta in flight service is a joke, and any one who spends $ on paid F on DL has a few screws loose !!

Another thing I enjoy about FT is that it strives to respect such a wide diversity of informed opinion.

Hot Sandwich Not Served On Plate?

I admit it’s been 10 months since I was last on a United flight but I did a same day turn (DEN-SEA-DEN) taking a family member back home and got a snack box offering in F on UX outbound and I had a choice of one of the two hot sandwiches (not sure what they are called) on the return, a UA 737-900, also in F. I passed but I noticed that they were served without a plate (just in the paper wrapping) with a single napkin and plastic utensils.

Didn't they used to serve them on a plate? They are messy and sometime burnt or dried on the bottom making them hard to cut with a plastic knife. The Glenfarklas kicked in and I dozed off so I didn’t get to watch how people handled them but the only option for cutting would have been with a single napkin on the tray table. Yuk!

Anomaly or common practice?

Anomaly, I think. I definitely recall the warmed sandwiches being served on the smaller (domestic) casserole plates. But, it's been a while since I've been on a domestic flight that had the warmed sandwiches.

Did you ask the UX FA if there were plates/casserole dishes provided by catering?

The heated sandwich offering was on the return flight, a UA 737-900. Since I didn’t take the food offered, I was only observing what others received.
