Taking the United experience to new heights

If you've traveled with us recently, you may have noticed some changes we've made to your inflight experience and beyond. From easier travel management with the United app to delicious new food menus available on board, we're working hard to make sure that we provide you with the right elements every step of the way. Read on to learn about some of the changes we've already made, as well as projects that are currently underway - and be sure to watch for continued improvements in the future.

We've elevated the inflight food experience in United Economy® to offer tastier dishes and more choices. An appetizing new menu is now available on most long-haul international flights. The complimentary multi-course meal service includes free beer, house wine and individual bottled water.

We're also partnering with The Trotter Project, a nonprofit organization committed to mentoring and inspiring a new generation of culinary minds. World-renowned chefs from The Trotter Project will work with our United culinary team to reimagine all of our inflight menus.

Our beverage menus continue to evolve, incorporating tasty new options. Select United flights now offer Moscow Mules from Crafthouse® Cocktails, a Chicago-based company that produces a line of delicious, gluten-free, premium bottled cocktails. The Moscow Mule is available for purchase on select United flights, in select United ClubSM locations and in all United Global FirstSM Lounges. We are also excited offer seasonal craft beers on select United flights.

A new look for our aircraft interiors

As new aircraft are added to our fleet and we update the interiors of our Airbus fleet and Boeing 737-700 and 757-300 aircraft, we'll be making exciting changes to the look and the feel of our cabins. Larger overhead bins, more in-seat power outlets, new carpets and mood lighting are all a part of our new design.
