More Charlie Trotter on United

Mustard thyme scented chicken with warm horseradish potato salad

Charlie Trotter's meals were featured again on United's flight out of SFO today. But this one didn't quite do it for me. The sauce on the chicken was extra sweet, while the potato salad was very sour. Sure, they were complementary to each other and the strong tastes were probably intentional for a pressurized cabin, but it was a bit too strong. At least the HKG-SIN leg featured a plane with the new business class seats. No such luck on the long haul over the Pacific though.

I also elected that meal on a recent SFO-HKG flight, and was also disappointed with the outcome.

They seem to be rotating the new-config 747s on the transpac routes... I got one from SFO-HKG-SIN 2 weeks ago.

At least it wasn't as bad as this particular experience on Virgin from Mumbai to Heathrow:

Anyone need a UA systemwide upgrade good through 31 January? Willing to trade for $100 Raffles Gift Cert (for high tea)!

Why fly United? Surely you can earn your mileage on other Star Alliance partners like ANA?
