United Airlines has shuffled its “Bistro On Board” menu in October with a number of new menu items available for purchase in economy class.
United Bistro On Board Menu – October 2023
Each month the buy onboard menu changes slightly on United Airlines. Last month, United offered peach oats and yogurt, a vegan breakfast bagel, and biscuits and gravy on breakfast flights. It offered cacio e pepe, an everything bun burger, and a cheese and fruit tray on lunch and dinner flights. For October 2023, United is shuffling the menu with a number of items. Let’s take a look.
United Breakfast Menu – October 2023
Breakfast items are available on flights over 1,190 miles that depart between 5:00 am and 9:59 am.
Mixed Berry Overnight Oats
Brown sugar and cinnamon flavored overnight oats served over a layer of mixed berry fruit puree

United Lunch/Dinner Menu – October 2023
Lunch/dinner items are also available on flights over 1,190 miles that depart between 10:00 am and 8:59 pm.

The burger or salad cost $10 while the fruit and cheese plate cost $8. Supplies are limited and United’s pre-ordering features does not allow these meals to be pre-reserved.
1K and Global Services members who are not upgraded are eligible for one complimentary food item and one complimentary alcoholic beverage. A recent glitch that improperly indicates that Bistro Onboard items were chargeable has been resolved.
I appreciate that United offers not only snack boxes and cold snacks, but a variety of hot items that rotate each month. That makes the economy class experience a bit more bearable.
I have been on the ground for seven weeks but gearing up for a multi-leg trip and it looks like the upgrade is not going to clear on one of the legs. That may give me a chance to try out one of the items above soon. If so, I will report back.
