Stroopwafel – United Airlines

Stroopwafel - United Airlines
Toasted waffle filled with caramel, cinnamon and bourbon vanilla. Served with coffee. Complimentary
Dulles (IAD) to Chicago (SFO), United Airlines

United has been giving these out for a while now, and I really like them. They’re not too sweet and I like its soft, chewy texture.

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.

Bbq beef with vegetables – United Airlines

Bbq beef with vegetables - United Airlines
Roasted potatoes, orzo salad, bread, and vanilla ice cream. Complimentary
Beijing (PEK) to San Francisco (SFO), United Airlines

This did not taste good. I think I only ate a couple bites of the beef and not much else. Even the orzo salad was flavorless and plain. I did eat the vanilla ice cream. I guess you really can’t mess up prepackaged ice cream!

Breakfast of champions – Red Carpet Club

Breakfast of champions - Red Carpet Club
Rose Kennedy cocktail (vodka, cranberry, splash of soda), coffe, blueberry mini muffin. Complimentary
Red Carpet Club, San Francisco International Airport (SFO)

Airports always become less stressful when you have access to airline lounges. I love getting complimentary drinks and snacks, and most importantly free reliable wifi.

Good deed cocktail – United Airlines

Good deed cocktail - United Airlines
During boarding, I helped this lady get her huge oversized carry-on into the overhead compartment. The airline stewardess was appreciative for my assistance so she gave me a free cocktail as a “thank you”, score! I guess it pays to do a random good deed.. Complimentary
Seattle (SEA) to San Francisco (SFO), United Airlines

Ham and cheese roll – United Airlines

Ham and cheese roll - United Airlines
On a parmesan pretzel roll, with potato chips and chocolate cluster.
London (LHR) to San Francisco (SFO), United Airlines

It’s nice to receive a warm “breakfast”, and this was decent. The roll was on the hard and chewy side, but it had ham and cheese so it was bearable. The potato chips were throw-aways (very poor quality). The chocolate cluster wasn’t very good either, but it I’m not gonna complain too much about a sweet treat!

Diet Coke and pretzel sticks - United Airlines
