Back to UA's Old School Biz Class
I was happy to find that my upgrade request got cleared on the return leg today. Unfortunately, the plane itself hadn't been upgraded, so I got stuck with the old business class seats, featuring those airplane-plugged power outlets, tiny non-VOD screens (yes, that's Indiana Jones in the background), and seatbacks that can recline into you. I'm not complaining - it was still business class after all (and on the upper deck with lots of generous storage, no less). But yeah, it's tough when you've been spoiled by the new version.
Oh - and Charlie Trotter was featured on the menu again today. His dish wasn't pictured above, but the tangy yellow sauce used in the Grilled Mahi Mahi was too sweet for me. Sure, stronger flavors are required in order to appease our tastebuds in the low air pressure, but if it were cranked down a bit, I probably would have liked it a lot more. I am happy to be seeing more of his meals on UA either way, and eagerly anticipate the next one.
