It has ripened Tomatoes, not to be confused with unripened tomatoes... Just found the description too funny

SFO - EWR

As 2 1K traveling in row 1, we were the last ones to get order taken, and there was no choice.

The new version of butternut squash ravioli is now with brown butter, covered in wilted swiss chard.



The brown butter resulted in an oily dish, and the chards were underseasoned and bitter. The previous iteration with chopped butternut squash was better.

I know UA had a snack service (finger sandwiches) back in the 80-90's on this route, when did UA serve a full meal? I'm sure the FA's aren't used to working so hard on a short flight

I hope you are joking, since there was always a full meal on JFK/EWR-LAX/SFO, especially back in the 90's. Redeye flights had a light snack meal.

The pre-landing snack is a couscous salad/hummus plate, or deli meat and cheese block plate.

In your OP you said SFO-LAX so you could see why FlightNurse might be questioning it.

Your welcome, but UA did have a snack service (finger sammy's) back in the late 80's early 90's on this route.

Looking at the photos of the ravioli and my asian noodle salad above, I think I'll be taking your 3 course meal suggestion from now on...

Perhaps not a 3 course meal, but...

I remember staying up till mid-night to snag a double upg into F on the 747 SFO-LAX. They came around with a cart to serve a seafood platter. Boiled shrimp and other seafood. Those were the days!

Seat 1A


Pre-ordered the ropa vieja enchiladas per recommendations and they did not disappoint. Would be my first choice in the future if offered. Not pictured is my Old Fashioned.

Trouble at potato station.

IAH-HNL. Breakfast fingerlings very undercooked. Sweet potato wedges w/ pre-landing burger very overcooked. Rest of breakfast (egg white bites) and lunch fine.

Having trouble deciding on which one to choose? Has anyone had the French toast or should I go for the scramble?

Scramble is definitely better than fritatta, as far as savory goes.
