In the past two months Iâ€™ve had a rather random assortment of meals on United Airlines that differ from whatâ€™s advertised. Itâ€™s not that big of a deal, but Iâ€™ve received what I consider a â€œsnackâ€ for dinner and â€œlunchâ€ for a snack.
On pre-merger United I could always count on a hot meal for dinner in first class, and at least one heated option for lunch. This wasnâ€™t the case on a 7:25 p.m. Chicago to Los Angeles flight last month advertised as dinner. Here was the only selection offered for the flight â€“ a cold chicken plate:
It was filling enough, but I recall this being more of a snack offering in the past. I did receive a hot dinner a couple of weeks later from Houston to Los Angeles on a 4:06 p.m. departure â€“ a choice of chicken cacciatore (my selection) or penne pasta:
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
