First-class passengers of domestic United Airlines flights will soon be able to enjoy new and improved lunch, dinner and beverage choices.
Among the changes to the airline’s menu announced this week are new premium salads (debuting this month), sandwiches and wraps (available Sept. 1), along with the addition of Prosecco sparkling wine in premium cabins beginning this fall. In 2015, United will also introduce premium-cabin meals to flights of shorter duration and fresh meal options for premium-cabin customers on United Express flights.
The new choices include a Southwestern salad, an Asian-style noodle salad, a seasonal greens with roast beef and blue cheese salad and a Strawberry Fields salad – replacing the previous chicken and shrimp salad options.
Designed by United’s team of chefs, the new salads and sandwiches – including an Asian-style noodle salad and turkey and Swiss on cranberry baguette - will be made fresh daily and paired with a gluten-free soup, along with United’s signature service elements, including warmed nuts, premium snacks and warmed cookies.
On transcontinental flights and on longer mid-continental dinner flights, the airline will continue to offer customers a choice between a pasta dish and a chicken or beef option.
