United isn't the only airline to offer the Belgian cookie as a complimentary snack. American Airlines and Delta Air Lines both serve the treat on flights over 250 miles, according to their websites.
All three airlines offer other complimentary snack options as well, including non-alcoholic beverages on all three airlines, pretzels and snack mix on United, pretzels on American and almonds, Cheez-It crackers and KIND Dark Chocolate Chunk bars on Delta.
