If you’re flying long-haul with United Airlines today you might be in for a treat.
Today see the introduction by United Airlines of a new menu options in its premium cabins. Customers on long-haul international flights traveling in United Global First and United BusinessFirst can choose from high-quality, restaurant-style entrées, including selections of beef, chicken, fish and vegetarian-style pastas.
“The changes come after many months of input from customers and from our Congress of Chefs, as well as taste-testing sessions,” said Sandra Pineau-Boddison, vice president of Food Services for United. “Our goal is to deliver a better and more-consistent experience for our customers, while offering greater variety and choice.”
Premium-cabin customers begin their dining experience with warm nuts accompanied by a spirit, beer, wine or champagne. United Global First customers receive a six-course meal of an appetizer, soup, salad with gourmet breads, entrée, cheese and fruit, and dessert. For United BusinessFirst customers, the airline offers a five-course meal with an appetizer, salad with gourmet breads, entrée, cheese and fruit, and dessert.
All premium-cabin meals conclude with made-to-order ice cream sundaes, liqueurs, world-class port wine and freshly brewed coffee.
United offers these options on long-haul international flights between the United States and Europe, Africa, the Middle East, South America, Asia and Australia.
