UA 79 economy class full meal tray – the usual: main dish, side of salad with ranch dressing, small plastic wrapped dinner roll and butter, and butterscotch brownie. The brownie is a little on the sweet side but still good. Veggies for the salad was rather uninspiring but still okay. Dinner roll or whatever you call it, also unspiring, I normally don’t finish it.
Close up of main dish. The chicken and sauce are a-ok, considering this is a US carrier economy class. The corn and pieces of carrots also ok. The rice… always my pet peeve. You probably can see it, some parts are still frozen or cold. I’ve experienced this at least 4-5 times while taking trans-Pacific flights with United.
The other main dish was chicken mushroom with thick noodles and dark sauce. Looks better than the partly frozen/cold rice.
