Check-in

I love it when we have the premier access when checking in at the airport...

Lounge

Since the United Club Lounge opens at 5am, we had about 25 minutes for a quick breakfast and a little time to check on our emails before boarding.

Boarding

My boarding pass from my iphone's Passbook app...

Seat

The business class cabin has a 2-2 configuration with 16 seats which were all occupied that day.

The first two seats on the right side of the cabin...

The seat control...And of course, my seat turns into a fully flat bed which is just perfect to allow me to recover from waking up really early that morning.

Meal

Some refreshments...

To Begin

 

Fresh Seasonal Fruit, fruit flavored yoghurt

 

Main Course

 

Cinnamon Swirl French Toast, Turkey sausage and Maple syrup

 

All the choices come with cinnamon roll and croissants with butter and fruit preserves. The other choices for the main course were:

 

Herbed Scrambled Eggs, Potato gratin and turkey Sausage

 

Cereal and Banana served with milk

 

Some light snacks just before landing at JFK airport.

Entertainment

A very nice screen...

On the flight, I decided to use my Emirates headphones instead, which actually was very good.

Toilet and Lavatory

The lavatory was always kept clean which is always appreciated. Oops, I guess I took this picture when the seat belt sign was on...

Arrival in New York

We arrived at JFK airport about 20 minutes early which was good. It was my first time in New York and I was really excited in visiting the Big Apple!

 

Conclusion

 

It was my first time to fly with United and I was really impressed with the service. The staff were very friendly and pofessional. Also, I love the fact that they have fully flat bed specially with a very early flight like that. Highly recommended airline!
