United Airlines customers relax with Starbucks

1st October 2007 Print
United Airlines customers can continue to sip and enjoy Starbucks coffee under a recently signed agreement between the two worldwide brands. United is a major U.S. carrier that exclusively serves Starbucks coffee.

“Our customers expect the best from us, and we are constantly working to provide that to them,” said Charlie Ahmes, United vice president for Onboard Service. “Being the only major U.S. carrier to serve Starbucks coffee – one of the most popular coffee brands worldwide – is one of many ways in which we are giving our guests a premium travel experience.”

“We’ve been proud to have Starbucks coffee served to millions of customers on United flights for the past 13 years,” said Rich Rodriguez, Starbucks Foodservice vice president, sales.

The agreement enhances United’s recent efforts to provide premium products and services, particularly for its most loyal customers. In July, United announced it would become the first U.S. carrier to offer fully lie-flat beds in business class on overseas flights beginning this fall, with more features, space and personalization options for customers during their international travel.
