United to bring in new economy menu

United Airlines is introducing a new inflight menu for economy passengers featuring larger portions and complimentary beer and wine.

The carrier will launch the new menu on June 1 on its transatlantic flights; "most" transpacific flights; and on services between the US and Argentina, Brazil and Chile.

There will also be the facility to buy "premium snacks" through the "Choice Menu Snack Shop", currently only available on United's North and Central America flights scheduled for more than two hours, flights to and from northern South America and the service between Honolulu and Guam.

Economy passengers will receive a three-course meal starting with a drink and "snack of cheese and crackers, baked whole-grain bruschetta chips or Kiri cheese spread and crackers", followed by a main course served with salads and artisan bread.

The main course meals will include:

  • Turkey meatloaf in spicy barbecue sauce, served with sweet potato mash, mixed vegetables, an artisan ciabatta roll and amaranth mango salad
  • Tuscan ravioli with roasted red pepper sauce, served with a petit artisan ciabatta roll and mixed-grain salad
  • Udon noodles with stir-fried vegetables and ginger soya sauce, served with a petit multi-grain baguette roll and apple wheatberry salad.

This will be followed by a dessert, such as gelato, sorbet, ice cream or mousse.

United will offer alcoholic drinks at no charge alongside the multi-course meal service and a free bottle of water.

Sandra Pineau-Boddison, United's senior vice president of customers, said: "The changes to come on June 1 will deliver an elevated on-board experience on many of our intercontinental flights and will offer travelers the high level of service they expect from a global airline."

Yesterday, it emerged that Priority Pass members will no longer have access to United Club lounges from next month (see news, April 16).

This is music to my ears… and almost too good to be true!! I have been complaining about their service for their Transatlantic and Transpacific service for a couple of years now, sending messages and they sent miles to compensate the horrible service offered thru their flights from US to Europe and Asia. That entire situation made me change to fly other airlines within and outside of Star Alliance, just to avoid flying the low cost airline received in UA thru 2013-2015. Sad because some other airlines raised the bar high in Economy and I already made my reservations for 2015 with the exception of a trip in October… that probably I will try to make it happen in UA. I just have to say, Thank you and I wish them a good luck with these changes…that hopefully they didn’t came too late to repair the bad image and reputation they gained for the past two years.

and about time too…the menus on intercontinental flights with UA are a disgrace..

was on the edge of giving up on UA before this …BUT CAN I BELIEVE IT….will wait until this happens

was a fan of UA in the '90's but certainly no longer…dolphin has got it right

Currently, the comparison with asian carriers like SQ/etc in economy is a joke…
