United Airlines has decided to make a few cuts to its menu for first class fliers, Inc.com reports. A user on FlyerTalk gave the scoop on what you can (and can’t!) expect.

For starters, passengers on a flight that’s less than three hours long will no longer be able to munch on breakfast breads in their first class seats. What’s more, menu choices will include just two cold options for lunch—as opposed to a hot and a cold option—and one hot and one cold option for dinner, instead of the former two hot options.

Should your flight last between three and four hours, you’ll also only have one hot meal option for dinner rather than two. And if your continental flight is between four and five and a half hours long, you will also have only one hot option for dinner. On the longest non-transcontinental flights, ice cream will be replaced with 'pre-plated' desserts, the user said.

After these cuts, you might want to switch over to flying with the best airline in the world. But put away your pitchforks for now; some speculate that these little changes may be a result of dropping prices for first class seats, making them a bit more affordable (and easier on your wallet!) Plus, there’s an important reason why you should never, ever eat airplane food in the first place—and it’s not because it tastes bad.

This is what happens when airline pilots secretly race each other

  This is what happens when airline pilots secretly race each other When a Quora user asked if pilots race to destinations and compete with other airliners, pilot Tim Sanders explained that races are pretty few and far between But sometimes there are opportunities. It does happen. But generally such behaviour is rare. And indeed, as Mike Frey has said, basically ATC limitations prevent much of this kind of activity.

Overall flying has changed, and at the end of the day airlines #1 focus is revenue first, then passenger comfort, and somewhere on the bottom of that list you’ll find employees perks . And for many employees this is that last big perk that hasn’t been taken away from us.
