    Really enjoyed the video clip and the amazing thunderstorms captured. Great editing and layover music!

      I can’t believe there is only one comment on the video. I think it is jaw dropping the music provides nice contrast.

    Never ever eat the western option for flights out of asia on any carrier! 😉

    What was that first plate?

    I’m finding the BF food to be a very mixed bag these days. I’ve had some great food – Indian spiced shrimp out of FCO last month was particularly good. And some has been boring – not awful, just uninspired – like the chicken I had out of ORD on the same trip. But there were other things coming out that weren’t quite as good. My partner was not happy with the brunch entrée out of FCO and sent most of it back uneaten. It’s sad that things are so inconsistent now. BF used to have dependably good food.

    I was always told this is a tough one to get GPUs to work on.
    What was your experience? Was BF full?
    or was it all opups or paid biz tech types outsourced to India?

    Funny! I on the same flights in May! Going over the food was fine, but coming home, you are spot on, it was BAD! There may have been options, but everything was bad. My plate went back full. For some odd reason, mid flight 1/2 the Business class cabin was awake, so they offered us a “snack”. They said it was a brownie, but it was like no brownie I’ve ever seen. Lucky for the guy sitting next to me, I was willing to share my my emergency food stash. The look on his face when I pulled my big old ziploc of food out of hiding. PRICELESS!

    Delhi is no better on multiple occasions.

    Once had a flight out of there that was delayed about 9 hours and the crew voted to override the union work rules so it wouldn’t cancel. So crew served breakfast first and the dinner later.

    Not once did I even get a drink on that flight. But yes, it’s all there for the bed.

    I’m headed out right now on that flight. I miss the goat cheese, Sprite Zero, good red wine selection that isn’t Californian or French, and the music selection. Otherwise, it is good rest.

    UA BF has consistently a good seat, decent IFE, ok sundae with good toppings and a nice snack basket. Apart from that it is all hit or miss. I eat gluten free and more often than not they don’t load up my meal so I always carry enough stuff with me to keep me well fed.
    Would love to see some consistency and a little more care for special meal requests.
