United's traffic out of LAX is still pretty sad, but due to a very last minute upgrade to business class (upgrade didn't clear til I was on the plane!), I at least got to try the wonderful* cheese sandwich they're now serving?
Which, to be fair, is actually quite a step up from the disgusting chicken sandwich they still serve. And service was superb-- the purser individually thanked all the frequent fliers and even passed out his signed business cards complete with thank you note. Amazing-- haven't had service this good on a United flight in a long time!
* = note sarcasm.
