On UA 102 IAH-MUC right now. Same menu as SFO-AMS above, so at least no surprise. I ordered the steak, my SO the lobster thermidor, so we’ll see how they are.

Good luck. Steak out of IAH should be good.

Hey - a GS out of IAH must be important.

It was the horchata oatmeal, served warm. I miss the katsu that always used to be a pre-arrival meal option on the flights to Japan, but still much prefer the oatmeal to the ubiquitous egg white bites.

Same menu for ORD-FRA. It's just disgusting. For dinner I chose the vegan meatballs and tortellini. The meatballs were so dry and hard that I could barely cut through them with the knife. The salad is just as awful as the cauliflower and grapes. I selected the custard tart for dessert. I took one bite, spit it out, and that was it. It tasted spoiled. For breakfast, I had the Blueberry French Toast. It tasted better than it looks but it was dry. The fruit salad was not ripe in the slightest and flavorless. I wish that UA would just stop serving meals in Polaris altogether as it just embarrasses the flight attendants and doesn't feel even slightly premium.

The steak was tender & delicious with a mildly spicy sauce. She actually had the chicken, as they forgot to load the lobster. It was mediocre, so I shared some of my steak, which she also found excellent. Guten Morgen!

LAX to NRT in June. No menus, but one meal without the dog bowl. Success?

Selection was some cream fish dish, a beef dish and the chili with polenta. I opted for the chili and despite what some people here have said, I thought it wasnt bad. Quite similar to something I make at home, really. The saladgod, I wanted more green vegetables. But it didnt taste terrible. Just not what I expect for Polaris.




For breakfast, it was French toast or the omelette bites. Wholly underwhelming, but the fruit salad was at least better than the outbound flight.



They did have three dessert options. I wanted the cheese plate and apparently I was the only one who wanted it, as the FA brought me two, along with two glasses of Cabernet Sauvignon. That was enough to keep me happy.

Hope the food to and from Japan keeps improving.

LIS-EWR. No menus. Pastas were bad, and not even hot. Cheese plate was excellent and I asked a dessert. Rasperry pie which was delicious. Like, my moms pies.

Youre salad looks as dry as your pasta. Did they not have any sauce or dressing?

The dressing was at the bottom of the salad but I had to ask the FA if they had dressing.

The pastas had no sauce, no cheese. Not even Rana quality. Complete shame to serve that.

For whatever reason, LIS (and LHR) seem to have the best quality cheese plates in the system.
