Yesterday I posted on the ideas for aa thread that I thought they should sell meals from companies (I believe I said in-n-out burger and krispy kreme) aside from the catering cos. I discussed it with a co-worker and we thought the logitics would be difficult. But then I got this email from United just now (along with the announcement about LOT joining Star Alliance). Whaddya think? I'm kind of pleased:
