As most of you probably know, a couple of months ago United made some changes to their domestic first class meal service, and overall they were positive changes. I was actually quite excited about the new redeye snack:
In between lunch and dinner, or later in the evening, a delicious warm panini or flatbread sandwich is served with a crisp salad and Sunchips®.
Sounds tasty, right? Well, here are a couple of pictures of the panini/flatbread sandwich from my Hawaii redeye a couple of nights ago:
Doesn’t the inside just look delicious? Look, I’m no airplane foodie and will eat almost anything, but this is genuinely inedible. The bread is tasteless, the chicken is awful, and whatever else they add in there is tasteless as well. I’ve started just asking for a Luxe snackbox on flights where this is served.
I’m not looking for something gourmet, but I’d rather see them serve nothing than this. I don’t think I saw a single passenger finish the whole sandwich on the two redeyes I’ve taken the past two days.
