I have a confession to make. I… and I don’t know how to say this, but I… I actually like airplane food. I know this makes me guilty of some great culinary sin. I simply don’t care. Boarding a flight to Vegas, getting a drink, and having a meal is a nice way to spend several hours. I am writing this in the air to tell you about United first class lunch. This was a great meal.
I wrote earlier this month about domestic first class dining on United and on American. To be honest, they are very similar services. While the guidelines change every few month, lunch and dinner flights that aren’t premium transcontinental routes will typically have two choices. One of those options, particularly at lunch, is often cold. Both airlines start with a free drink and some warm nuts.

One of the things American Airlines does a great job with is providing meal choices to their first class customers. You can select your meal online if you book at least 24 hours in advance.

I would definitely order this again on a future flight. What should you expect?Continue reading “American Airlines spicy Asian vegetarian special meal”

Ok, as promised, here is a review of our United first class meal and flights to and from San Juan. When we booked our cruise about a month from our sailing date, we immediately booked flights to San Juan. Thankfully, the best deal for a flight, after some online searching, was through United. (At some point in the future I will discuss my trials and tribulations with the other major carrier out of my hometown, American Airlines, but I am still suffering from flashbacks). We booked 2 coach class seats. The route consisted of 2 flights each way, a Embraer EMB 175 regional jet between Midland and Houston and a Boeing 737-900 for the Houston to San Juan leg.
