Verdejo sauvignon blanc – Vueling Airlines

Verdejo sauvignon blanc - Vueling Airlines
Vina Albali. €5.50
Gatwick (LGW) to Barcelona (BCN), Vueling Airlines

This was a fairly short(ish) flight, but I really needed a drink especially since it was delayed taking off. And because I’m on vacation so I can drink as much as I want, lol! Anyway, this white wine was ok, but the service from the Spanish crew was great.

Sweet and sour chicken – United Airlines

Roast chicken with gravy - United Airlines
Served with steamed vegetables, rice, side salad, and dinner roll. Complimentary
San Francisco (SFO) to London (LHR), United Airlines

Ugh, airline food… This was decent at least, but I don’t expect much from United Airlines. It’s just mandatory food to get people full so that they can fall asleep. I can usually sleep for an entire flight, but I had some difficulty falling asleep on this flight so I ended up watching a bunch of movies.

Pre-boarding snacks – Air France KLM Lounge

Pre-boarding snacks - Air France KLM Lounge
Vodka cranberry cocktail, ham and cheese sandwich, brie, dried apricots. Complimentary
Air France KLM Lounge, San Francisco International Airport (SFO)

This lounge was small than I expected. I arrived between international flights so there wasn’t a lot to choose from in terms of food. As more passengers arrived, they put out more food and always walked around passing out warm cookies (which were very yummy).

Pre-boarding snacks – United Club

Pre-boarding snacks - United Club
Chinese donut balls, raisin bread, bloody mary, Coors light beer. Complimentary
United Club, Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)

This was the first time I’ve seen Chinese donut balls at a United Club. They definitely weren’t authentic – they were really just regular donut balls, but at least they tried to be fancy with the nomenclature, lol!

Pre-boarding snacks – United Club

Pre-boarding snacks - United Club
Salumi, cheese, pita, veggies, nuts and dried fruit, Rose Kennedy cocktail. Complimentary
United Club, San Francisco International Airport (SFO)

They improved the United Clubs at SFO, and they know provide a wider variety of snacks. They tend to get really busy though so sometimes it’s no longer any more relaxing than being in the terminal areas.
