Expect even more Choice Menu items come November

Share via:


I recently wrote about several items from United’s economy Choice Menu, Bistro On Board. The deep dish pizza, the Thai-style chicken ciabatta, the cheeseburger, and the no longer available egg white flatbread… United has been at work improving its in-flight dining selection in the back of the plane. 

In this press release from back in June United highlighted the upcoming changes:

This week the new beer items should be in tow, and I’m especially excited about that Voodoo Ranger IPA. But there’s more…

I received a message from a little ‘United’ birdie saying the following:

What I can tell you is this: we will have new breakfast and lunch options rolling out in November as well as new lunch additions in September. Additionally, the future menus will feature new items not yet seen on the menus, although there is always a possibility that a favorite may come back in the future.

This is great news for economy travelers; and the fact that United has launched and removed items from the menu on several occasions this year means that they’re actively tinkering to find the right menu options for its customers. I’ll try to get more info on the new items soon.

Give me your thoughts
