The Southwest scramble is delightful - absolutely a nice addition.

Was it served on top of a tray? Were linens covering the tray (or table)? Glassware? Curious minds want to know.

On the SAN-SFO flights they were served on small plates, the sandwiches came in a white box and the FA would plate them, they were like small finger sandwiches. Alaska served a warm roast beef sandwich on the SAN-SFO this was in coach...

I don’t know if any reports yet, but damn, that Smoked Beef Brisket is the best UA domestic meal I’ve had in ages.
Beef chunks in gravy with mashed potatoes and spinach. Yum.

Hi all,

Not a frequent United flyer. I have a trip next month MKE>IAH (F) and return IAH>ORD (F).
The outbound is operated by Skywest in a E175. Will a meal be served?
The return is operated by United and mentions "Dinner."

Thanks for your insight!

Yes on a tray, yes linens, yes glassware. This was in First.

There's the Miller Brewhouse in MKE. It will be better than anything than is served on a regional.

LOL thanks... You're definitely right. But that doesn't answer my question. ;-)

The "meal" is at best a cold sandwich, a side salad, and a dole cup of fruit. There's also a Cousin's Subs behind security. I would call what you'd be getting is a "meal."

Yes.

Any flight above 900 miles has meal service.

There are a few compliments upthread, including mine. I think it's really good. As far as I recall without scrolling back, one person didn't like the spinach/chard but other than that, uniformly positive so far.

But it will be a sealed plastic tray with cheese & crackers, aka "Lunchable for grownups"

All you people on page 1 who raved over the brisket, I want some of what you're having. I tried it out of SFO earlier this week based on this thread, and it was one of the worst things I have eaten on United. Possibly I went in expecting a bit too much, but I've selected the chili/polenta (which was good when I had it twice last year) for my next flight, and will do the ravioli (untested) for the one after. Not risking that brisket again, and my seatmate was really unhappy with the updated asian noodle salad. At least the dessert was decent and the bread was warm. Stale nuts before the meal to round it off.

What some deride as stale nuts, others savor as aged nuts.

They go great with a delicious Doleô Fruit Cupģ.
