United Airlines announced it will introduce new in-flight menu options for first- and business-class passengers on North American flights this fall.  In addition, the airline said it begin to offer premium-cabin menu items on shorter flights beginning next year.

On September 1, United will start serving new sandwiches and wraps in first- and business-class cabins on North American flights.  New offerings will include Italian prosciutto on tomato focaccia, Thai-style chicken wrap, turkey and Swiss on cranberry baguette, chicken and Mozzarella on tomato focaccia, and Cobb salad wrap.

The airline will also expand its premium-cabin in-flight meal offerings to flights that are at least two hours and 20 minutes, or 800 miles.  The previous minimum was 900 miles.

In addition, United said it will upgrade its premium-cabin service on United Express flights.  The airline plans to replace the snack boxes that it currently offers on those flights with new menus consisting of freshly prepared food.
