United Airlines is reducing flight attendant staffing in their international widebody Polaris business class. Starting February 1, 2019 there will no longer be a dedicated flight attendant to work the galley preparing meals, and more meals will be pre-plated.
In the spirit of United no longer assigning a ‘mid-Galley’ flight attendant to cook meals, United is making their Polaris cookbook available for sale. That way you can cook your own meals!
The cookbook launched this past Mondayand features,
a collection of mouthwatering recipes inspired by the United Polaris onboard dining experience. With over 40 recipes from United’s executive chefs and chefs from The Trotter Project, you’re sure to fall in love with the ingredients, techniques and flavors of these culinary creations.
I will say, the soups are good, soups on planes often are. I’m not sure how those will translate for pre-plated service starting in February though.
