United Airlines is again offering kids’ meals on board its flights, just in time for holiday travel.
Among dishes offered to children are chicken tenders and grilled cheese, French toast and dessert. Both breakfast and lunch/dinner menus are offered on certain United flights where complimentary meals are served.
United customers can choose the “Children’s Special Meals” option to request a kids’ meal when booking a ticket, or they can add a request to an existing reservation using the United® mobile app.
Starting next year, United says kids’ meals will be available for pre-order to customers travelling in eligible cabins on select United flights. By pre-ordering, the children will be able to choose the kids’ meal they want to have on board before departure of any United flight eligible for pre-order.
“We’re committed to providing a great onboard experience for all of our customers, and we’re thrilled to be able to offer our youngest flyers new, kid-friendly food options on select routes,” said Aaron McMillan, United’s Managing Director of Hospitality and Planning. “We know there’s a lot to balance when travelling as a family – especially during the busy holiday season – and hope this helps to put parents’ minds at ease as they prepare for travel with us.”
United’s kids’ meals are available on flights greater than 2,000 miles, in cabins where complimentary meal service is offered, and include kid-friendly breakfast and lunch/dinner options.
