United Economy dining

Our infight dining experience is a little different right now and will vary depending on the flight you’re taking.

Beverages

Non-alcoholic beverages are complimentary and available on all flights. You may not see our flight attendants in the aisle as frequently right now, but sealed beverages are available upon request, so please let them know if you need anything. We’re not currently selling alcohol on board.

If you’re on a flight under 1 hour, you’ll receive beverages on request. Coffee and tea are available all day on all flights. Wine and beer are complimentary in United Economy® on long-haul international flights.
