IMG_9776 (1)On the heels of launching its new Polaris business-class service, United Airlines announced a new transcon offering in its business-class and premium economy lite cabins.

Promising “cross country comfort,” the Chicago-based airline is adding Boston-San Francisco to what was previously known as United p.s. The new service is in addition to the existing routes linking the New York metro area from Newark Liberty International Airport with San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Consistent with the outgoing offering, the new business-class cabin will feature fully lie-flat seats, bedding that includes a duvet and pillow from Saks Fifth Avenue, and amenity kits designed by Saks with products from Cowshed Spa.

Business-class passengers will be treated to a new signature cocktail, a Moscow Mule, accompanied by a candied ginger skewer and wedge of lime; and a menu developed by The Trotter Project that includes such items as pumpernickel and goat cheese crostini with mango relish and smoked sea salt, pan roasted chicken with kale pesto, orzo with grilled artichokes and sautéed leeks, and braised short ribs with creamy goat cheese grits.

Dessert will include items inspired by the new United Polaris international business-class menu and a variety of snacks including Boulder Canyon potato chips and Madik’s almonds will be served prior to arrival and United is introducing a hot towel service immediately prior to arrival as well.

The three routes will also provide passengers in the Economy Plus premium economy lite cabin with a complimentary hot meal and adult beverages. Menu items will include a choice of roast chicken with smoked barbecue sauce or butternut squash tortellini with sage cream sauce as well as other “coastal-city inspired” dishes. Dessert will include cheesecake and a chocolate brownie.
