I had the pleasures of flying First on United from LAX to Denver last Sunday. I have flown several times in United First in the past year, and was surprised to see the meals served from a black plastic tray, not unlike one would find a frozen TV dinner, rather than a plate. It was an interesting contrast to see the tray against the table cloth.
Also, they did not offer warmed nuts in a ramekin either, which I have experienced on other first class flights on UAL. (The last F flight being in February)
What is company standard for F in terms of meal service? Thanks!
