United Airlines Business Class ORD – LHR

United Business Class-13

My scenic road trip starting point was Luxembourg, unfortunately getting all the way there from Mexico isn´t as efficient as it could be, there was only one way to get there in a timely manner but was extremely expensive. That´s why I decided to position myself to Heathrow where 4,500 Avios can easily be redeemed for the short hop to Luxembourg. That´s exactly what happened.

This flight was on the old soft Business Class product from United, that means it wasn’t a Polaris flight just yet, even though the hard product is still the same so far.

Chicago (ORD) – London (LHR)

Boeing 767-300

Flight Time: 8 hours

Seat: 9A


Waiting on my seat was this Special Edition Amenity Kit waiting for me. They were commemorating 35 years of flying the US Olympic team. It seems to be that they had too many leftover from the summer and kept giving them until finish.

The Kit wasn’t particularly appealing to me, but I still liked the socks.

Why not start with a glass of Champagne?

The salad was actually decent, and really loved the smoked salmon…

United Business Class-10

My choice for Entree was the Short Rib, which was really good! The sides were Risotto and Veggies. Of course, followed by a Gin & Tonic…

United Business Class-9

Right after, I say yes to the cheese selection plate along with some Port. 

United Business Class-7

To finish, it was time for the United signature Sundae….

United Business Class-8

Business Class passengers were invited to use the Fast Track service upon landing at Heathrow airport. It would have been very helpful, but since I was connecting to Luxembourg didn’t take advantage of the invite. 

United Business Class-6

The sun was rising just before landing in London…United Business Class-13

Breakfast was served just before landing, but I wasn’t hungry at all…


Conclusion

This was such an average United flight with no major positive or negative things to shout out. Everything ran smoothly, had a very decent crew, was kind of a short flight but still managed to get around 4 hours of sleep.

Looking forward to get my road trip started in the following post!
