Boarded as Group 1. It's Boeing 757-200 p.s. version.
® cabin. This was my first time boarding 2-class p.s. flight. My previous experience with p.s. was in October 2012 to JFK, which was still former UA 3-class flight and we were in United First cabin.
Actually, the BusinessFirst® cabin of p.s. flight was same as former CO international BusinessFirst® cabins.
Now the flight was about 4.5 hrs to Newark.
Unexpectedly, the English Tan colored amenity kit was provided. This is a good surprise.
Another pitiful service on p.s. only is; Go Go Inflight Internet service.
Well... the actual connection speed was disappointingly slow too.
Another difference here. The p.s. flight has slightly better meal selections compare to domestic United First.
...and actually, they serve the starters, followed by the main course, which is different from other domestic flights too.
Breads are served like this. (Thanks to Ms. cabin attendant accepting my request taking picture of bread basket)
...and this is the unique main course I never seen in United First.
If I try to explain instantaneously, the apple blintz is a rolled crape with apple-pie filling. United version was so-so. Not too shabby but not super tasty either. However, it was fun having something different – not an omelette, nor a bowlful of serials with milk. The sides, combination of ham and pineapple feels like Hawaiian but not bad at all actually.
Then flight continues... nothing special, but United's lie-flat seat was comfortable. Maybe my body has been adjusted for United cabins.
After passing by Illinois, as usual, hot baked cookie has been offered.
"Anything would you like to have with your cookie, sir?" then I replied "A glass of milk, of course." ...yes, I still have baby palate, I think. I do like this hot cookie service prior to arrival, with cold milk, of course. ☺
This flight departed 5 minutes early, arrived EWR about 15 minutes early. Good Job.
