Are people in United's catering department just "plane" stupid???
I've ordered well in advance and called to reconfirm my meals 24hrs in advance. I ordered vegan meals on my last four flights, and each time I get a vegetarian meal that included butter, and cheese, once a yogurt, once an egg bun. And, it wasn't lactaid yogurt or any of that crap...it was just normal lowfat blueberry yogurt. Once they gave me a "Happy Meal" by mistake. Excuse-me, I'm 21 years old, and I passed by that stage a LONG time ago.
They seem to give you the same thing, whether you get non-lactose, lacto-ovo, vegan, or just plain vegetarian.
A vegetarian is not just a vegetarian!! Do they just prepare a bunch of lacto-ovo meals and hope those of us who don't eat dairy products can just pick off the parts we don't like???
Plus, the food they serve is so horrible. The entrees are ALWAYS overcooked, drizzled in some yucky sauce, the lettuce is wilted, and desserts are sickeningly sweet, the fruit plates are mushy, the rolls are stale. Don't give me that shit about how bad airline food is...I've flown on many airlines and none has ever been as bad as United.
Also why do United's Video systems keep failing. On my last A320 flight, they said that the screens wouldn't come down. And, then on a 757, there was some other malfunction.
Jeez...what a rummy airline.
