United Airlines’ Bad Catering
On the way back from Thailand, I flew United from Tokyo to San Francisco. Up until now, all of the airline food I’ve had this summer has been great. But, what United served was probably inedible. This is what United Airlines’ bad catering looks like firsthand!
On our 9-hour flight from Tokyo to San Francisco, the flight attendants served dinner, which was quite good. But about 7 hours in, the flight attendants came by to serve “breakfast”. I chose the egg option since I (usually) prefer them to whatever else is offered.
But when I was handed my meal, I was a bit shocked to see what I did. The sausage (or is that an uncooked hot dog?) looked frozen, and the egg looked like a kayak. At first, I didn’t think much of it, but I am truly shocked that the caterer in Tokyo thought this was even acceptable to serve. I otherwise found the catering to be excellent out of Tokyo, so I was quite puzzled by this. United’s catering has been subpar ever since COVID-19 began, and it seems like there’s no end in sight.
United Airlines’ Bad Catering: Final Thoughts
Overall, I was just disappointed by the “breakfast” United had on a 9-hour flight. If you’re wondering if I ate it, I did eat the egg. I didn’t want to risk an upset stomach and eat the sausage. I also avoided the hash brown since it barely looked cooked as well. Suffice it to say, don’t fly United for the catering!
