United’s p.s. Service Ups the Ante on the In-Flight Meal

Travel News — By John Curran on October 15, 2010 at 7:00 am

Travelers these days know that the quality of in-flight food service generally trends upward with the distance you’re traveling, with international flights offering some of the better food options, even in coach. But a new brunch option for United flights traveling from New York to California could raise a couple eyebrows.

The brunch certainly sounds delicious with quiche, fresh fruit, cheese, croissant, cucumber dill salad and sparkling white wine making up one entree. For economy class travelers, it’s probably the most sumptuous option they’ve heard of, except perhaps for the other option on United’s p.s. Flights: tomato and mozzarella sandwich, shrimp, the same cheese plate, couscous salad, gourmet chocolate and sparkling wine.

Both are also $24.99, according to the company’s announcement via the Kansas City Star. In an increasingly a la carte style of in-air food and beverage options, that may seem like a lot, but United Managing Director Stuart Benzal says it’s offering “a greater selection of on-board dining options.”
