    Umm appetizer or main course? They normally only offer 1 option for appetizer for domestic flights. Or is this for international BusinessFirst flights?

    Then again, pmUA only had 1 appetizer option, so this is nothing new for some of us.

    It’s shame, but then that can be said of so much at United these days.

    Would be helpful if UA realigned regions of the plane with class of service. GF its not first, but is a bit better than business. Perhaps this is Business First (or just business). BF is really just a little better than Economy. Economy plus might describe it.

    Would seem that UA is cutting services until they resize down to an airline the size of Continental, perhaps with a couple of key hubs and a minor network.

    As far as I can see this aligns Business Class on pmCO two class planes with Business Class on pmUA three class planes. In that respect, it makes sense. Now, they just have to be honest that Business First is not First Class, but mere Business Class.

    I agree with Mike’s comment above. It really seems as though American is moving in the right direction while UA is seeing how far they can go with the reductions.

    I just flew from LHR-SFO on Business First. The “Hindu Meal” Vegetarian food was AWFUL! My wife ended up eating bread and fruits.

    And to think that our flight began with a promo of United’s new upscale catering and how they have hired the best chefs! I will never fly a US airline again!

    Are tray dinners coming?

    As a pmUA flyer, I was bowled over by the dinner presented in courses on a 2-cabin sCO 767 from IAH to FRA last week. UA BF meal is on a tray.

    Do we also get to look forward to tray dinners on sCO (ex-CO) runs?

    […] other United news, Seth at Wandering Aramean reports that United will drop a second appetizer choice from existing service on two-cabin international BusinessFirst flights (think legacy Continental). […]
