    Pre-order at booking (or check-in) and ordering via IFE are my favs.

    Who would waste miles on a snack box?!?

    UA needs to completely revamp their food for purchase offerings. After flying from LAX-HNL this past week (coach on the outbound because my upgrade didn’t clear, but first on the return), I remembered just how awful it is to spend 5 1/2 hours in a pencil tube where the only food offerings were a box of small packages of assorted junk food or a long-ago made sandwich that would taste like it can out of a vending machine (or the cheeseburger which tastes like the 89 cent gas station mini-mart special). And while I’m venting about UA food, I should comment that the FC meal on the return was abysmal. The “steak” was so well done that it was inedible, and the mashed potatoes were almost certainly reconstituted instant flakes. And while the silverware set up used to contain multiple forks and knives to allow you to have a separate butter knife and salad fork, they’ve cut back to just a single utensil. And then, to top it off, the food is served by a bitchy old hag who hates her job and has no problem expressing her misery through grunts, groans, and frowns. Smisek has cut back in the wrong places, and he’s pissing off the most loyal customers.

    Well, today the new Bistro on Board Menu rolls out. Was on a transcon yesterday (31JUL), and they already had the August edition of Hemispheres Magazine onboard. Listed in the back pages for purchase were brand new menu items that, at least by the descriptions and pictures, look more appealing than what was then offered.
