Winter break is upon us! Time to get away from the cold weather, brr…

winter plains

Looking out from my seat, land is pretty much covered in snow. Time to head back to the tropics.


Second meal as we prepare to arrive at DXB was a meat sandwich along with Knott’s Raspberry Shortbread, once again plastic-wrapped bread bun and Fleischmann’s butter, and Upstate Farms plain nonfat yogurt. Edible.

UA 976 dinner meal

I set my expectations low for UA international flights. Food is most of the time, underwhelming. This one is long grain rice with chicken in curry masala sauce and vegetables in a different curry paste. It was pretty good. The sides: salad and dry plastic-covered bread roll, not so much. This is the big meal btw. Compare that to many other airlines’ big meal…
