United will ramp-up food and beverage service in June. 

The upgrades will begin with alcoholic beverage availability. Beginning June 1, United customers on most flights longer than two hours will once again be able to purchase beer and wine, and they'll also have a hard seltzer option. 

With the exception of long-haul international service, the carrier has suspended economy cabin alcohol service during the pandemic.

Up to this point in the pandemic, economy cabin United customers on flights longer than 2 hours and 20 minutes are receiving an airline-selected snack bag with water, two snacks and hand sanitizer. No snacks are available for purchase. 

United will also up its game to customers in domestic premium cabins on flights longer than 1,500 miles and hub-to-hub flights of more than 800 miles. Enhanced meal service will include new entree choices, served on one tray with items individually wrapped. 

At present, United First customers on flights longer than 2 hours and 20 minutes are offered a choice between a selection of sandwiches and a snack box, but only on select flights from designated markets.
