And I will probably have already eaten dinner in SFO and would like to go to sleep as fast as possible. Can I ask the FA to hold my meal until I wake up say 8 hours later? (Rather then skip it and rely on whatever the "mid flight snack" is) Or does that cause huge problems for the FA's if I ask this request?
Technically, the on-demand service no longer exists. Practically, many FAs will be glad to hold your meal and heat it for you upon request.

UA929 LHR-ORD breakfast menu. I went for banana bread as I'd already had a decent full English in the lounge earlier.

I was offered the cheese burger for pre landing but declined as I assume it's the greyburger I had a couple of weeks ago.



It was actually really nice. I followed this up with ice cream, because why not?



​​​​​​​although nice, it's rock hard and requires patience...

Kirby: we are focusing on kwality, not kwantity. This is not a kutback!


On a serious note, is it just too hard to source a croissant? And whats with the casserole dish?

Yes I could have quite easily gone x2 on those. Need to save space for connection to SFO anyway...

No menus.
PDB choices were water or champagne.

Main was beef short rib, chicken breast, or halibut:



Dessert options were cheese or sundae. Sundae arrived in liquid form:



Pre-Arrival choices were cheese pizza or cous cous:



Snack basket consisted of paprika chips, KitKat, some other chocolate bar, and bottled water:



All in all, it was edible. Which is more than I can say for the outbound on LH (surprisingly).

That is one of the most atrocious-looking set of meals I’ve ever seen posted on this site!

I think I had better-looking pizza in school lunches in the 90s.

The chicken breast. No beef short rib left for this lowly Silver.

Ice cream should be served at the correct temperature, but I kind of like the soupy half-metaled ice cream. YMMV.

I'm much more distressed about the fact that we can only take one, not have two or three options.

Lunch choices of short rib, chicken with risotto, halibut with red sauce, and something vegetarian. I had the halibut, was pretty decent. Dessert choice of cheese plate, vanilla pudding, and chocolate pie, which was fine.
Pre-arrival cheeseburger Wellington or some
Kind of salad

That cauliflower side dish thing is not looking any better with more examples shown. Looks like a dry mish-mash of weird components.
