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.
United Airlines currently offers an Italian sausage frittata on its breakfast buy-on-board menu. Is is worth ordering?
My son and Augustine and I recently few to Honolulu (details on that soon). Since I used Turkish miles (15K round-trip) for his ticket, we did not upgrade to business class.
It’s not often I get to fly in economy class on a longer United flight (blocked at six hours), but it gave me a chance to take advantage of my 1K benefit of complimentary food onboard.
We actually had a nice breakfast in the Alaska Lounge before the flight, but I ordered the Italian sausage frittata because it sounded good and why not? Better than a snack box…
It was smaller than I thought it would be, but very tasty. The egg, pork, kale combo worked well.
Simple as that: it was tasty, hot, and Augustine and I wolfed it down…that kid has a huge appetite for a three-year-old.
If you see this on your next United flight, it is not a bad breakfast choice and actually is better than some of the first class breakfasts offered onboard.
