United upgrades First

Domestic United First and United Business customers on United Airlines will find a major upgrade on their meal service from 1 September. 

The airline says that further improvements will be coming along in early 2015, in all classes and including international flights.  Prosecco sparkling wine is also being introduced.

Initially premium-cabin customers on flights within North America will enjoy new chilled sandwiches and wraps – Italian prosciutto on tomato focaccia, a Thai-style chicken wrap, Cobb salad wrap and caprese on Asiago baguette – as well as new warmed options – turkey and Swiss on cranberry baguette, ham and Swiss on pretzel baguette, chicken and mozzarella on tomato focaccia and roast beef and cheddar on Asiago baguette.

Designed by United’s team of chefs, the new salads and sandwiches will be made fresh daily and paired with a gluten-free soup, along with United’s signature service elements, including warmed nuts, premium snacks and warmed cookies.

“These changes mark the beginning of an extensive overhaul of our North America and international food service, offering travellers a level of service above that offered by our peers,” said Lynda Coffman, United’s Vice President of food services.  “Our new selections offer customers more of what they tell us they want when they travel – variety, bold flavour combinations and higher quality.”   www.united.com
