So United doesn’t offer vegan meals anymore. They offer non-dairy vegetarian meals, which they cannot guarantee are actually non-dairy. I brought along a couple Clif bars just in case. The first meal was a chickpea and sweet potato curry with Israeli couscous.
The dressing did have whey in it, so the salad was out. The curry was edible.
The snack was a couscous pita sandwich. Yes, you read that correctly. A pita stuffed with couscous. Vegans love carbs! The last meal was baked apples with a big ball of dough and a side of applesauce. The dough was not edible, so I ate applesauce and apples. Nice thing about international United flight: free wine.
We had a 3 hour layover in Tokyo, so we got some sushi. I imagine it’s just as authentic and delicious as a Chili’s at an American airport. I was pleasantly surprised to find a veggie roll and some vegetable nigiri. And most important: protein from edamame.
Pretty good for an airport meal!
