I received the following e-mail from United alerting me to changes in their first class cabin:
We are taking a step back in time to the days of more luxurious air travel. By restoring travel amenities you may have missed and introducing additional niceties, we hope to make your future domestic United First® flights more pleasurable.
Enjoy the following enhancements in United First:
Refresher towels on flights longer than 2 hours
Linen tray table liners during meals on flights longer than 2.5 hours
Warmed, mixed nuts during lunch and dinner on flights longer than 2.5 hours
Hot meals for lunch and dinner on flights longer than 2.5 hours
After-dinner ice cream sundaes on flights longer than 3.5 hours
Look for these service improvements when you fly United First this year.
Nice move, of course. But I’d love to know why you get a towel on a 2 hour flight, but you don’t get a linen tray table liner unless the flight is another half hour. I want my linen!
