United offers better inflight services with refreshed ‘Choice Menu’

New fresh food options with United Choice Menu "Bistro on Board."

United Airlines customers who want to enjoy fresh food in flight now have new options available for purchase, as the airline today debuted its Choice Menu “Bistro on Board.” The options are available to United Economy customers on most flights scheduled for more than three-and-a-half hours within North America and to and from Central America.

Breakfast selections include a ham and Swiss baguette, a sweet cheese pastry and a morning energy selection of a hard-cooked egg, cheese, grapes, a wheat roll and almond butter.

The lunch and dinner menu now includes a caprese baguette, a BLT wrap and a roast beef and cheddar baguette, as well as an Asian-style noodle salad and artisan cheese selection.

In addition, a bistro scramble – eggs, potatoes, ham, bell peppers and cheddar cheese – and a lunch and dinner chicken stir fry are available on flights between Hawaii and Chicago, Newark, Houston and Washington, D.C.

United prepares Bistro on Board items fresh daily. The selections will change seasonally, with new items coming in October, as United provides customers innovative selections made with high-quality ingredients. In keeping with the airline’s commitment to sustainability, United wraps the Bistro on Board items in packaging made with environmentally friendly materials. The packaging is also less bulky, which will lead to less waste and a smaller carbon footprint.

In addition to Bistro on Board, United will continue to offer the Choice Menu Snack Shop — snack boxes, candy, pita chips and hummus, granola bars, Pringles and Chex Mix. Snack Shop items are available for purchase all day in United Economy on most flights within North America and to and from Central America scheduled for more than two hours.

United also operates 200 additional aircraft with live television — more than any other airline in the world.
