United Airlines Bringing Kids’ Meals Back

Chicken fingers, french toast, toasted cheese sandwiches and dessert are back on the menu for children flying with United Airlines.

United Airlines has announced it is bringing back kids’ meals on select flights and as any parent flying with a small child already knows, a little comfort good can go a long way.

“We’re committed to providing a great onboard experience for all of our customers, and we’re thrilled to be able to offer our youngest flyers new, kid-friendly food options on select routes,” Aaron McMillan, United’s managing director of hospitality and planning, said in a statement. “We know there’s a lot to balance when travelling as a family – especially during the busy holiday season – and hope this helps to put parents’ minds at ease as they prepare for travel with us.”

To request a kids’ meal, customers can choose the “Children’s Special Meals” option when booking a ticket, or add it to an existing reservation via the United mobile app.

United’s kids’ meals are available now on flights greater than 2,000 miles in cabins where complimentary meal service is offered. The carrier offers a breakfast meal of French toast with sausage, fruit and a croissant on international flights departing the US and international flights returning to the US.
