United Airlines still needs to do a lot to improve the dining experience in its premium cabins. Even though United executives claim food quality is improving (and maybe it is from the disgusting slop that was served), but the focus seems to be shifting to what’s being served in the back of the plane.
The Points Guy is reporting that United’s newest aircraft, the Airbus A321neo, will offer an in-flight snack station that’s accessible to Economy Class passengers. This will be the first aircraft in its mainline fleet to offer this grab-and-go option. Passengers can take That’s It bars, Undercover Chocolate Quinoa Crisps, or a savory snack mix. Details as to which flights or what flight length is required for the snack bar have not been released. When presented, they will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. JetBlue has offered its pantry for some time, so United will not be the originator of this idea. I have to wonder how long this feature will last before cost cutting eliminates it.
United will begin flying the Airbus A321neo on November 30th. Its inaugural flight will take flight from Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) to Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) on United flight UA321.
Anthony’s Take: While this is a nice gesture, I’d rather United focus on serving decent meals in its premium cabins. While there have been some improvements, none of the food is still particularly good.
