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

United Club 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.

Aircraft, Boeing 757-200


Boarding was scheduled at 5:22am.

Business Class Cabin

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

Seat 1A

Personal screen

Headphones and IFE controller

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.


Some drinks.

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.


The lavatory was always kept clean which is always appreciated.

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 😍


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