California fully re-opens today, with capacity restrictions lifted and mask requirements relaxed. To celebrate, United Airlines is offering free snack boxes on intra-California flights.
Free Snack Box Today On United Airlines Intra-California Flights
It has been a long road to reach this point, but with the majority of Californians now vaccinated and new COVID-19 case numbers plummeting, California has fully re-opened. Among the highlights:
- No face masks for vaccinated residents in most settings
- Masks sill required on public transportation, in hospitals and jails, and at child care centers and K-12 schools
- No capacity indoor or outdoor capacity limits
- No social distancing
Airports and airplanes fall under federal law, where a mask mandate remains in effect.
California Governor Gavin Newsom did warn that the lifting of restrictions does not signal the end of the virus:
“We’re not done. This is not spiking the football tomorrow. It’s not mission accomplished tomorrow. This virus is not going away tomorrow. This pandemic is not behind us tomorrow. We’re very mindful that already in 2021 globally more people have lost their lives to Covid than the entire year 2020.”
To celebrate California’s full re-opening, United Airlines is offering each passenger a complimentary “recline” snack box on 14 intra-California flights today.
The “recline” snack box is described as “movie theater-themed snacks, including popcorn, pretzels, cookies and more” and includes:
- Pirate’s Booty white cheddar puff snacks
- Honey mustard pretzels
- Gummy bears
- Oreo cookies
In addition, United will be hosting trivia games at the gate with the opportunity for passengers to win bonus miles or United Club day passes. If you’re flying on one of United’s intra-California flights today, head to the gate early!
Select flights on the following routes will receive the free snack box today:
- Los Angeles (LAX) ⇄ Sacramento (SMF)
- Los Angeles (LAX) ⇄ San Diego (SAN)
- San Francisco (SFO) ⇄ Los Angeles (LAX)
- San Francisco (SFO) ⇄ Orange County (SNA)
- San Francisco (SFO) ⇄ San Diego (SAN)
Be on the look out for gate festivities and free snack boxes today. As a Californian, I am so happy to shed my mask and take another step toward fully embracing our “normal.”
