2023 Let's Eat - United Premium Plus (International)


The usual Thai chicken noodle dish or pasta for lunch out of SFO. Roll was not heated

Milkbar crumb cake surprisingly tasty.

Pre-arrival snack is a sad turkey and cheddar sandwich with a roll on the side?

Which "Let's Eat" thread do the IAH/ORD -> Hawaii long haul flights would the premium plus meals go? This one or domestic premium plus? Since ORD-HNL is blocked at 9:20 I'm curious what the meal service(s) are. I know there's a meal shortly after take off, but what's served later in the flight and how long before landing?

meal service is the same as J for domestic O

I would think domestic O should be in the united first/business/premium transcon thread

Are you saying a flight like ORD-HNL serves the same meal in PP as they do up in Polaris? Past reports/pics of the PP meals don't seem to suggest that. Hopefully someone has recent pics/expereince since beginning of 2023 of the meal service(s) on the day time Westbound route.

O has been served the J meals since Covid. Below is a video from 4 months ago

No, they're saying PP is usually served the same meal as first class on ORD-HNL. "Polaris" equipped aircraft may be used on the route, but it is not a Polaris marketed route, and therefore does not get the Polaris level of service or meals. The Polaris product is long haul international only

Pre arrival meal seems like the standard economy pre-arrival meal with a fruit bowl although I did not check what was served in economy.
The dinner served after takeoff was definitely nothing to write home about. Chicken or pasta options. Chicken was a real chicken breast and tender but portion sizes were quite small. The salad was surprisingly very good with arugula and lettuce. Very snappy tender fresh greens.

Hate to ask but what was the floater in the sauce?

I don't really remember. It wasn't anything hard. It might have been some condensation from the paper lid covering the sauce tin falling inside and causing the sauce to break/separate from the fat.

LHR-EWR yesterday: salad was a prawn
thing that was nice, main was a ok turkey or a mushroom option

Some drama as the person behind me had something foreign in the food (plastic I think). Not sure how that happened but the crew promised it would be reported.

Overall another poor Premium Plus experience. First served drinks but nothing additional with meal. If you asked individually they brought drinks after the meal service was complete.

final meal served about 40 minutes from landing. They apologized for the rushed service and blamed the.flight for being an hour early I think. We were certainly early although the flight map seemed to be up to date just a poor crew.

Anyone flown on a daytime flight US east coast - LHR recently? Booked on a daytime flight IAD-LHR and I'm expecting a typical breakfast but curious how substantial the second meal will be, considering we'll prob be awake the full flight.

That looks better than many of the Polaris meals that have been posted. Looks like the best salad that has been posted all year

Hi All-

I'm flying in PP in April on the SFO-BNE route. What can I expect? Has the menu changed recently? For the most part it looks like they serve what you get on a domestic Polaris flight. Also I assume there is a pre-arrival snack service and snacks available all flight long in the Galley area?

Thanks,

Paul

Here is the chicken schnitzel on SFO-SYD March 9... I didn't eat the cardboard but it was close... Pretty sure it's meant to have more garnish LOL
