One of the last steps in the harmonization of the products between the two subsidiary operations is that of long-haul, premium cabin meal service. June 1, 2012 is the magic date and some details are starting to become clear on what the approach will be. Alas, things will still not be completely harmonized. For BF service there will still be differences depending on whether you are on a 2-cabin or 3-cabin aircraft. For 3-cabin the appetizer will be pre-plated and only one choice versus two choices served in the aisle from a cart. Dessert will be sundae carts for all, but the petit fours are moving to be only in UGF, not in 2-cabin BF, and the cheese plate will be similar to the appetizers in terms of plated or from the cart depending on the aircraft configuration. From an entrees perspective everyone will basically have the same choices, regardless of cabin. For the sUA flights this means the BF customers will now have 4 choices, not 3. Generally an upgrade, I believe. They're getting rid of all the patterned china over time, switching to plain white dishes. And they're switching to the sCO wine/water/cordial glasses in BF. Overall I think this is an upgrade. The entree choices are definitely a step up. A bit annoying that there are still going to be inconsistencies in BF depending on what the cabin configuration is, but I understand it mostly has to do with galley configurations and space limitations so not much else which can be done there.
