Each week, my Meal of the Week feature examines an airline meal from my travels over the years. This may be a meal from earlier in the week or it may be a meal served over a decade ago.
Since we seem to be on a United Airlines theme today on Live and Let’s Fly, let’s stick with it for my weekly Meal of the Week segment. Earlier this week, I had the chance to try United’s new “everything bun” hamburger and loved it.
United describes it’s new “everything bun” hamburger as:
All-beef patty and Swiss cheese on a bun topped with poppy seeds, sesame seeds, salt, garlic and onion.
Served with Sir Kensington’s ketchup, mustard and chipotle mayonnaise on the side.

The hamburger costs $10 and is served in a paper bag pulled directly from the warming oven. The Sir Kensington’s condiments include a nice chipotle mayonnaise.
The bun was fabulous…it made the burger unique. I also appreciated the melted Swiss cheese.
Note that tomatoes and lettuce are no longer available toppings: those used to be offered on the side. That makes it less of a traditional burger, but places more emphasis on taste on the meat and cheese…and bun.
Unlike its underhanded changes to the MileagePlus program, at least you can always count on United to offer a good burger. This bun is even better than the pretzel bun, making it the best United burger yet.
