How truly awful - a panoply of processed unhealthy muck.

Sad that the 2021 Let's Eat - United First, United Business, & Premium Transcon Service thread is dominated by discussions about the merits/demerits of snack boxes....

The old days when Continental served Subway sandwiches are looking really good right now

But it well and truly went away in practice with the pandemic. Not optimistic it ever comes back, but I still hope one day.
So there was a time when it was listed as a published benefit? When/why did that cease? Kirby?

Yes, it was listed as a specific benefit in F/J. In the PDB thread - it looks like it was removed from the website in mid 2019

ORD to HNL 12 Jan 21
Breakfast was served about 40 min after wheels up. Choice was pancakes or egg white sandwich. I chose the latter and fortunately it tasted better than it looked. Disappointed it didnt come with any hot side though.

Later, there were two passes with a snack basket and a few checks for drinks. Was pleased to have the Polaris seats on the 763.

From perusing archive.org, it appears the published benefit was removed when the website was redesigned in 2016.

Notably, Kirby joined UA in 2016.

I'm on this flight Jan 28, so thank you for posting! Food looks dismal at best, and sad there is no pre arrival meal. Hoping for the new Polaris as well, but my seat map is showing the old 767 configuration. I'll post meal picks when I travel, and I'll be returning on OGG-ORD.

Did they provide any pillows, blankets, or amenity kits?

Normally you'll find out around T-72 hours what the configuration will be. No amenity kits. Pillow and thinner blanket (not the tissue thin blue thing though).

IIRC from my last PTCON this was the smaller light gray/beige blanket from the true Polaris set, which itself has been eliminated from said set.
True Polaris now offers just the one larger duvet blanket.

Yes. I guess the almonds arent so bad, though they are soaked in oil and covered with salt. Sometimes I use a napkin and try to rub it off.

Ugh. Flying this route next month. Will make sure to self-provision. Sad!

I was expecting the usual "snack box or snack box" options given that the flight originated in TPA but they had some sandwiches as well. Maybe left in the catering cart from the previous crew? Inbound aircraft came from BOS
