To my aviation lovers. ✈️ 👨🎓 😁
I promised some people to sum up my flight on United Airlines, but have not done it. Until now.
Before flying with them, I thought they lack good customer service, in-flight entertainment and reliability.
Therefore, everytime I went to the US, I flew with Delta (or at least tried to avoid United). Everyone remembers the story about a passenger on United 3411 flight being aggressively pulled out of a plane (to add, the flight wasn’t operated by United at all). There’s even more negative sentiment about them since then.
First nice thing we got to know is that our airplane got changed. Instead of outdated 777, there was a new Boeing 787 Dreamliner at the gate waiting for us. This was my 3rd time on this amazing plane. 787 is made in a way to make lengthy flight less exhausting by implementing a lot of cutting edge technology. There’s even a system that cushions turbulence, making your journey more enjoyable.
Once entering the board of the plane, we were greeted by hospitable United staff. First impression was good!
This was my longest flight so far. It took 11hrs.
This was in LHR, so once we were taxiing, on our left we could see the legendary Concorde that flew twice as fast as modern 787.
Soon we took off.
Short after, we were given some salty snacks. Minutes later it was time for drinks. The choice was huge. Ciders, juices, spirits, hot beverages. I sticked to Heineken.
Then there was more snacks.
In a while, they served dinner with even more drinks.
Ice-cream after that!
I’m a short while they gave us goody bags with snacks!!! All kinds of snacks, sweet, sour, salty!
“Why so many drinks?” I positively asked myself...but then I remembered that I’m flying with an American carrier. We all know Americans are into beverages! So I continued enjoying my beers!
And then there was a final meal!
We were spoilt! Was I visiting my grandma or flying to a holiday destination.
