Interesting format for your report. Havent watch the video yet, but i will when i have time. But it seems like you had some intresting food choices there, looks good! Thanks for sharing.

Good job on the video but I would still like to see a proper typed out trip report.. It is more detailed and it s always fun seeing the pics.. Also the seats look rather uncomfortable for an international business class , even though its the old layout.. And yes united has done well on the food section , not only in business but also in economy.. now there food is just about bearable.. not completely untouchable .. Check it out here...

I was supposed to fly LHR-SFO yesterday, but switched to LHR-ORD since the LHR-SFO flight was delayed and I would have missed my connection.
It looks like you had better food options. The LHR-ORD flight had the same main meal choices in first and business (except first also gets soup). It wasn't bad, although I don't like the salmon appetizers that UA serves with its first class meals. Salmon is a delicate fish and small fillets tend to dry out in my opinion. A prawn or different type of meat is a better choice.
Also the second meal choice on LHR-ORD was atrocious. The cheeseburger did not taste good. The meat was dry and over cooked and the bread could have been a hockey puck. Maybe SFO gets better food since it is longer, but it is obvious they only try with the first meal and don't care about the second.

Great video, sffflyer123!
Looks like you had another good flight with UA. We're flying them in 4 days for our honeymoon to Mexico from MSP and are excited to see how they are. I haven't flown with them in about a year, and this time we're flying F!
Food looks pretty good - but a lot of heavy things! I would have preferred the scones as well!

Great, Great, Great Job as always sfflyer!
I also recently flew United's brand new Business-First on Amsterdam to Chicago O'hare on United's newly configured N674UA! Quite a layout! Was very impressed by the seating but the food not so much. Going to Europe flew SQ A380 J Class from JFK-FRA! AMAZING!! Definitely give it a try!

Great video report once again!
Great to see some improvement on the PMUA side, definate by a better airline.
|Quoting sfflyer123 (Reply 5):|
That is so unfortunate. The cheeseburger is CO's classic dish. It was delicious the last time I had it--domestic flight though. Sad to hear that your food was not good. Maybe UA hasn't changed afterall!
|Quoting Roseflyer (Reply 9):|
The angus cheeseburger is a CO classic, but it is an economy meal. Just because it is put on a plate does not make it business class food. It reminds me of 2005 when UA was introducing buy on board in economy. They put the same meal on a plate and passed it off as first class food.

Hi there sfflyer123,
I am a huge fan of your video trip reports, and this one was no exception.
Another great video report as usual, nice to see UA are improving with their food. Not a big fan of the small personal screen but as you state correctly those will be gone soon enough.
Am actually booked on a domestic UA 787 flight in November. IAH to SFO and back the next day again!

That food looks horrible compared to what Delta serves on TATL flights. A hamburger is a joke for business class, something I can get for $3.99 at burgerking is not conducive to a $4000+ airline ticket.
