Not too much to say about this flight. Stay tuned for the next leg, a much more exciting flight from Dubai to Singapore with Singapore Airlines! Yay for Singapore Slings!
Winter break is upon us! Time to get away from the cold weather, brr…
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.
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…
