You may have noticed that the much-loved tapas snackboxes have not been available this month on United Airlines. They will return…but it might be awhile.
- Breadstick crackers
- Dark chocolate sea salt caramel
- Flatbread crackers
- Parmesan peppercorn spread
As I said in the past:
I’ve had better bruschetta. Better cheese spread. Better hummus. But you know something? This is a pretty decent snack. And it has been since United first introduced it.
No Tapas Snackboxes On United
This month, I have noticed myself and heard from others that the tapas snackboxes are not available. I’ve heard all sorts of rumors as to why and figured that rather than speculate, I would just ask United.
A United spokesperson told me:
United is committed to offering the highest quality meal and snack selections on our flights. Because one of the snackboxes did not meet our packaging expectations, we have voluntarily stopped boarding them to allow the manufacturer to quickly resolve this issue.
So there you have it. A packaging issue that is being resolved. Hopefully it will be resolved faster than the Denver catering issues that have plagued that station for years…
Will you miss the United tapas snackbox?
