NEWARK - New meal selections available on your next flight means bland airline food might be a thing of the past.

United Airlines says they are making a large new investment in its lunch and dinner selections. Most of those meals will be prepared by 900 employees who work at the company-owned kitchens in Newark.

Executive Chef Gerry McLoughlin says all the food is made at United's Chelsea Food Kitchen by people he says put their "heart and soul" into the meals.

The menu includes comfort foods as well as some international selections.

The offerings are primarily for first class, but passengers in economy will be able to purchase them for an extra fee.

The kitchen runs around the clock and is charged with making 33,000 meals every day.
