Will United heat up a pomegranate meal for me if I'm flying coach?
I remember when a coke was a nickel, and you could buy VRs in OD.

You NYC folk are funny.  Bring a double sealed meal from any of the plethora of places for $20 and eat like a real mentch onboard.
Esp in business where an FA should heat it up without making a fuss.

Why did you open it frozen?

I mean the whole tray, bagel, fruit, cheese etc. I sent the meal portion back to heat up.

Well DL served my biz meals PHX-ATL-JFK frozen too. I called to complain and they sent me 2 $50 GC to a host of choices. The tickets didn't cost much more than that ;).
