United Airlines has announced it will upgrade its dining options in first and business class on its long-haul international routes.
The carrier will now be serving new restaurant-style entrees for passengers in premium cabins of select flights as part of the multi-course meals. Regional specialties will be introduced, such as sushi on flights serving Tokyo and Osaka and hot noodle soup as a mid-flight snack on flights in and out of China. For dessert there are made-to-order ice-cream sundaes, liqueurs and coffee.
“The changes come after many months of input from customers and from our Congress of Chefs,” said Sandra Pineau-Boddison, vice president of food services for United, referring to a group of seven established chefs such as Roy Yamaguchi and Michael Cordúa.
Many airlines are responding to demand for high-quality onboard meals through partnerships with celebrity chefs to offer the crème de la crème. For a list of carriers doing so, click here.
