Next July, I will be flying MFR-DEN-EWR-YYT and then YYT-EWR-SFO-MFR. DEN-EWR and EWR to SFO is in First class and EWR-YYT and YYT to EWR is in Business class. What can I expect and what will be the difference between the First class and Business class products?

There will be no difference. The canada business class service, is like domestic first.

This is a perfect example of how UA can overcomplicate anything; it's all domestic first, but why not call it 2-3-4 different things?

Basically economy service, with real glasses, with an actual meal if you flight falls during a specified meal time, and is over 2 hours, depending on the aircraft...

UA isn't the only one that does this. Delta is much the same way, as they have First Class, which is domestic-only, Business Class, which is applied to domestic flights that are a tag-on leg to an international flight (although more often than not, gate agents still refer to it as First Class).

Basically you get a meal and free drinks on all of your flights and a wider seat except on the Medford segments. You can do priority check in, although I doubt it makes much of a difference in small airports like MFR and YYT. No lounge access.

You will not get anything on MFR-DEN or SFO-MFR since those are CRJ routes without a first class cabin. DEN-EWR should provide a lunch. EWR-YYT should provide dinner. Likewise on the way back YYT-EWR should be breakfast. EWR-SFO always has a meal.

I don't think any of those flights would have snack boxes. They are all over 900 miles on mainline. I didn't think there were snackboxes on flights over 900 miles.
