Experience United Polaris

In the air

Our elevated service continues on the plane. Enjoy private seats with direct aisle access, noise-reducing headphones, and a larger inflight entertainment screen. There’s also plenty of space to store your items and lots of personal charging ports.

In our amenity kits designed by Therabody, you'll find eye serum, facial spray, hand cream, socks, ear plugs and an eye mask to block out any noise or distractions.

Rest and relaxation


We’ve got a relaxation channel with content created by Therabody to help you settle in for the journey ahead. Cozy slippers will help you stay comfortable during your flight.


Every seat in United Polaris converts into a completely lie-flat bed. For even more comfort, mattress cushions are available upon request.


Our custom Saks Fifth Avenue sleep set has a Saks Day Blanket made from recycled plastic, a duvet and a cooling gel pillow. On flights longer than 14 hours, we also offer pajamas.

Inflight dining

Choose an entrée from our redesigned United Polaris menu featuring dishes from around the globe. Your main meal is served after takeoff and comes with mixed nuts, a salad, bread, and a made-to-order ice cream sundae for dessert.* On some flights, we also offer midflight snacks and a second dining service.

If you prefer a shorter meal service, ask your flight attendant about express dining. You can get all your courses at one time or select a few items and your meal will be delivered at your request.

All drinks, including beer, wine and liquor are free.

*Ice cream service only available on select flights.
