United Airlines 503
Boston (BOS) – San Francisco (SFO)
Boeing 757-200
19 February 2014

Boarding was once again done though door 2L, upon which I turned left into the First Class cabin and expected to see the same crew; that was not the case. Rather than a ‘what are you doing here, again?’ question, I was welcomed by a very friendly purser who immediately offered me a pre-departure drink.

Once airborne, one of the flight attendants went around and took drink orders and meal orders. I had the usual, which consists of a tea with lemon and sugar. Warm nuts were also offered, and may I say they tasted especially good this time!

There were two options for dinner:

  • Pasta with white sauce and a salad (what I had)
  • Chicken cacciatore and a salad

The pasta was very good and heated to the right temperature, I threw in some parmesan cheese that came on the side and it tasted delicious. The salad tasted very fresh and was edible.

Since I was in seat 2A, I could somewhat see the galley and when I noticed they were preparing ice cream, I knew it was going to be good. First, the purser placed all of the ice cream into bowls and then rolled out a cart. On the cart were several toppings (warm!) and the ice cream, already divided in the bowls.

The topping choices were as follows:

  • Chocolate (what I had)
  • Strawberry
  • Whip cream

For some reason, I had this intense craving for chocolate after dinner and it looks like my prayers were answered, as the duo was delicious!

The rest of the flight was uneventful, I worked and slept for a few hours and woke up around thirty minutes out of San Francisco.

This time we arrived in Terminal 3, so I had around an hour to get to my final flight to Seattle.
