United Airlines has added two new Impossible Foods menu items on select flights and at select airport lounges, as part of the carrier’s new push to add more plant-based options to its food offerings.

As part of a new collaboration between the two companies, the Impossible Meatball Bowl, a United exclusive, is now available to first class customers on all domestic flights over 800 miles in the continental United States, while the ‘Impossible Sausage is available at Polaris lounges in Chicago, Los Angeles, Newark and San Francisco.

“We want our food offerings to evolve and change with people’s preferences – we’re proud to work with Impossible Foods and believe our customers will really love these new options,” said Aaron McMillan, managing director of United Hospitality and Planning. “For many travellers, the quality of food choices at the airport and in the sky is a very important part of the customer experience, so we strive to ensure that our menu items exceed their expectations. This is the first of many updates that we look forward to sharing in the months to come.”

The Impossible Meatball Bowl features three impossible meatballs made with plants and broccolini served on a bed of couscous and topped with an herb-infused tomato sauce.

Impossible Meatballs are made with a custom blend of plant-based Impossible Beef and Impossible Sausage, seasoned with a homemade spice blend.

Additionally, during breakfast at the Chicago O’Hare, Los Angeles, Newark and San Francisco Polaris lounges, United will offer Ground Impossible Sausage as an optional omelette ingredient and Impossible Sausage breakfast patties in the buffet. .

“United aims to provide 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. “It’s exciting to see the airline bring new options to consumers that taste better and are better for the planet. We think United travelers will love having access to Impossible meals in the air and in the lounge.”

Starting this week, customers in eligible markets can pre-order the Impossible Meatball Bowl through United’s website and mobile app.
