If there’s any sign that travel is back in full force, this sweet surprise is the signal we’ve been waiting for.
After two and a half years since the pandemic’s start, the famed ice cream sundae cart at United Airlines is making its grand debut back to the sky. While the delight made a minor comeback last year, the sugary dessert was only bestowed upon the lucky few on select flights out of San Francisco. Now, those flying internationally via United Polaris business class are in for a sweet treat next time they’re up in the sky with the airline.
Frequent fliers know the prestige of this build-your-own sundae cart in the world of airline food. At the end of the three-course meal service in business class, flight attendants serve the delectable dessert, customized just to their liking with vanilla ice cream and a medley of toppings: whipped cream, hot fudge, M&Ms, shaved almonds, and even a cherry on top.
In addition to the pleasant news, the sundae cart’s triumphant return in February foreshadows some more exciting announcements from United Airlines to come: Refurbished interiors, increased Bluetooth connectivity, larger overhead bins, and more seating in United Polaris — so the rest of us can try the delicious ice cream sundaes, of course — are just a few of the amenities being added to the airline’s upcoming fleet.
