United Airlines is cooking up new meals for travelers seated in its premium cabins on long-haul international flights beginning in June. Passengers traveling in United Global First and United BusinessFirst can choose from restaurant-style entrées, including selections of beef, chicken, fish, and vegetarian pastas.
Premium-cabin customers begin their dining experience with warm nuts accompanied by a beer or glass of wine or champagne. United Global First customers are treated to a six-course meal of an appetizer, soup, salad, entrée, cheese and fruit, and dessert, including made-to-order ice cream sundaes, while United BusinessFirst travelers get a five-course meal with the same options at Global First minus the soup.
Regional specialties added to the menu include sushi appetizers and Japanese meals on flights to and from Tokyo and Osaka, and hot noodle soup as a mid-flight snack on flights to and from China.
United offers its new menu on long-haul international flights between the United States and Europe, Africa, the Middle East, South America, Asia, and Australia.
