A popular airline is hoping to win over their customers’ stomachs.

United Airlines is upgrading first-class food options and replacing snacks with full meals on some of its shortest flights.

The changes, announced Thursday, mean that instead of potato chips, chocolate chip cookies and bananas, passengers on flights of at least 800 miles will get meals such as chicken and mozzarella on a tomato focaccia roll and turkey and Swiss cheese on a cranberry baguette.

Currently meals are only served on flights of 900 miles or more.

The new meal service is expected to begin in February.
