Airline Food Still Isn’t Great!

Posted on: September 30, 2009

As a culinary travel specialist, food is obviously very important to me.  So a tweet about this article on airline food caught my attention:


Airline food (along with dorm food, in many cases) has long been the brunt of many jokes and sour faces.  As this article says, a number of airlines are now collaborating with chefs in an effort to improve the food offered in business and first-class cabins.  Unfortunately, I guess it means we economy travelers will continue to either bring our own food onboard or buy one of those often over-priced, generic meals offered in some version of a cardboard box.

Don’t get me wrong, I applaud the airlines for making an effort where their passengers in premium seats are concerned, but I am still not a fan of airline food, regardless.  Sorry, but vacuum-packed food that’s been through two ovens just doesn’t make the grade.  I’d prefer to save my money and just get to my destination so I can enjoy all the great food and wine that awaits me there!

What are your thoughts on airline food and beverage service?

I recently ate dinner on an Air Lingus flight to Ireland…the food was typically crappy, but the alcoholic drinks were complimentary. That definitely improved my dining experience! 😉
