CHICAGO — United Airlines announced on June 15 that it would offer two additional Impossible Foods menu items for select flights and certain airport lounges.
The collaboration between Impossible Foods and United said the Impossible Meatball Bowl is now available to first-class customers on all domestic flights more than 800 miles in the continental United States. The Impossible Sausage is available in Polaris lounges in Chicago, Los Angeles, Newark and San Francisco.
“We want our food offerings to evolve and change along with people’s preferences – we’re proud to work with Impossible Foods and think our customers are really going to love these new options,” said Aaron McMillan, managing director of hospitality and planning at United. “To many travelers, the quality of food choices at the airport and in the sky are a really important part of the customer experience, so we're invested in making sure our menu items exceed their expectations. This is the first of many updates we look forward to sharing in the months ahead.”
The Impossible Meatball Bowl features three Impossible Meatballs and broccolini served on a bed of couscous and topped with an herb-infused tomato sauce. Impossible Meatballs are made with a custom mix of Impossible Beef and Impossible Sausage, seasoned with a savory homestyle spice blend.
During breakfast, Chicago O’Hare, Los Angeles, Newark and San Francisco Polaris lounges will offer ground Impossible Sausage as an optional omelet ingredient and Impossible Sausage breakfast patties in the buffet.
“United is all about offering the highest quality customer experience, which is something we have in common here at Impossible Foods,” said Dan Greene, senior vice president of sales at Impossible Foods. “We think United flyers are going to love having access to Impossible dishes in the air and in the lounge.”
