For all the talk about healthy options and vegetarian dishes, United passengers love their comfort food.
During his presentation at Flight Plan 2020 last Friday, Toby Enqvist, United’s Chief Customer Officer, talked about new plant-based options, expanded choices, and the ability to pre-order meals coming to United domestic first class in 2020.
But he also shared the two most popular dishes on United in terms of passenger requests:
- Buffalo mac and cheese
Two American staples. Two artery-clogging, fat-inducing, utterly delicious dishes.
As a frequent United traveler, I can vouch for that data…both dishes are personal favorites. Admittedly, I often opt for a salad over the buffalo mac and cheese simply due to health concerns (not taste), but I never pass up the hamburger when on the menu.
Here’s the buffalo mac and cheese, served with sliced chicken breast:
And the hamburger, served on a pretzel roll with cheese, tomatoes, and lettuce on the side:
That’s always a balance between comfort food and healthy food, but I think the top two United meals demonstrate how important it is to keep some simple favorites on the menu.
