Interesting! I know AA considers it "Northern South America," so it's treated like Mexico/Caribbean. Wonder what Delta does.

Wow, beef cheeks are an even cheaper cut than the short rib. I guess the days of a filet at UA are long gone.

Business class reimagined.

LIM is indeed considered Polaris, but when I flew it in February 2019 and (early) March 2020, the meal service was a weird hybrid of pre-Covid Polaris, PS, and domestic F standards:

Plated appetizer and salad (similar to Polaris)
Three entree choices (southbound) or two choices (northbound redeye), all plated on board on circle plates (similar to PS)
Dessert choices of sundae with limited toppings (similar to some long domestic F flights like BOS-LAX) or cheese plate

Light plated snack before arrival--can't remember exactly what it was.

All Polaris ex-US flights except Delhi/Tel Aviv have the same Short Rib / Salmon / Ravioli entree options as above in thread for April as we had in March. A limited number of FRA test flights have same entrees but different dessert service (mini pies, ice cream, cheese instead of the horrible gelato/sorbet cup).

ORD-AMS 4/2/22

UA909 788

PDB was water/bubbles

Shortly after after take off, the drink cart emerged! Ordered a G&T and was offered nuts as an accompaniment

Dinner choices were short rib with mashed potatoes , salmon with wild rice and burrata ravioli.

short rib plate was just warm enough to eat but should have been much hotter.



Breakfast was oatmeal or the egg and tomato thing.




Purser said they are slowly getting back to full service and apologized for the entrees being the same as the first quarter other than they switched the starches between the proteins.

Great service and an awesome crew.

Meals delivered all on one tray has gone on for far too long. Just did a AA TATL and after separate appetizer/salad/bread serving, the main course came out piping hot, as it should be.

Any menu or service updates for April? I'm specifically interested in SFO-MUC, MUC-SFO, or FRA-SFO. Thanks!

No service updates. It will be the same service flow/standard as others have posted. Service enhancements are being trialed on select routes, and your routes unfortunately didn't make the cut.

​​​​​​​We just flew from GUM-DCA and the NRT-EWR route the beef was a tenderloin and cooked well. It included brocolini and mashed potatoes. I forget the other options but there was a chicken and the fish was sea bass. They may have had a veggie option, but again, I forgot what it was.

You are correct. No idea why UA has so much trouble displaying meals codes on its website.
