Flight Time: 6 hour 14 minutes
Distance: 3,590 miles
Aircraft: Boeing 767-300
Class: BusinessFirst (IN)
Interesting flight with a slight detour…
the usual starter for United BusinessFirst meal – warm nuts
To begin: Chilled Seafood Appetizer (left) Fresh Seasonal Greens: tomatoes, cucumber, kalamata olives and croutons with balsamic vinaigrette.
Close up of Fresh Seasonal Greens – yes they are fresh, especially compared to what I’ve been eating in economy…
Close up of Chilled Seafood Appetizer. Salmon with capers, sliced lemon, and dipping sauce.
Main course: Short Rib of Beef – red wine sauce, aji amarillo mashed potatoes, fine green beans, and carrots. Looks well well done with really mashed potatoes and one or two of each of the described greens. Makes sense as we had salad earlier. But the beef was not very inspiring. It was ok. There was vanilla ice cream for dessert and fruit plate right before landing (not pictured).
Diverted to Gatwick before making it Heathrow, several hours late.
