United Airlines Reintroduces Kids’ Meals Onboard Just in Time for the Holidays
United Airlines has today announced the reintroduction of onboard kids’ meals, with popular choices such as chicken tenders, grilled cheese, French toast and desserts. Children can now enjoy both breakfast and lunch/dinner on select flights.
On Wednesday (November 9, 2022), United Airlines announced the relaunch of onboard kids’ meals just in time for the festive holiday season. Kids traveling on select flights where complimentary meals are served can now enjoy breakfast and lunch/dinner with classic favorites such as French toast, chicken tenders and grilled cheese. Customers can select ‘Children’s Special Meals’ when booking tickets, or add the request to an existing reservation via the United® mobile app. From 2023, kids’ meals will be available for pre-order to customers traveling in eligible cabins on select United flights.
In Wednesday’s announcement, United Airlines’ Managing Director of Hospitality and Planning, Aaron McMillan, said,
“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. We know there's a lot to balance when traveling 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.”
