It appears that the dinner service, which used to be provided on this flight is now gone. UA matched AA, which removed the dinner service on flights after 8PM. For the longest time, well, almost two years +, UA served dinner on ps flights after 8PM. This matched Delta and AA at the time. Interestingly enough, Delta still serves dinner on JFK-LAX ( at 9PM! I am still waiting to see if Jet Blue will offer dinner on Mint flights after 8PM. For people who are regulars on this route such as myself, this is absolutely horrible. NY-LA people work later and often have later schedules ( SFO has no 8PM flight), so this flight would get me a full day in the NY office and dinner on the plane. The 5:00PM flight is horribly timed. Trying to get to JFK circa 3PM-4PM is a PITA. 8PM allowed me to go back to my apartment, pack and head to LA at around 6-7PM, after the traffic has cleared.. The only plus side I see is UA has also matched AA's lower fares. A race to the bottom !
