Boeing 777 - Business Class
United just loves to keep their product secret from bloggers. Another much more famous blogger got kicked off the plane when flying them a few years ago. Even when not blogging about a certain product, I like to board early to compare various different products and service levels both across airlines with in the same alliance and also across alliances.
I had booked this flight as part of a chainSAW Lifemiles ticket which allowed you to book flights to Istanbul and only pay intra-US business class mileage,sadly this fare is long gone...
The flight started as any other quiet TATL on United on their cattle car Boeing 777 Business Class which is configured as 8 across.
After the first three pictures, an FA approaches me and asks why I'm taking photos,I refer to their magazine which doesn't prohibit photography and I'm left alone but..."Thanks for flying the friendly skies"
Here is the Food and Drinks menu off the flight:
The dinner service was very uneventful, I had given up hard liquor for lent so had to try the various United swill/floor cleaners disguised as "wine".
Appetizer was forgettable and the shoe served as beef was tough as a rock, but the Ice Cream Sundae did make up for the dinner.
The best part of the flight: Ice Cream Sundae! Sadly just one cherry! :(
I was able to sleep for about two hours during the short flight and skipped breakfast in order to rest up a bit before the long day ahead of me..
