Based on my inflight gastronomical experiences, most airlines should pay their passengers to eat that stuff!<br><br>[i]Good afternoon, sir. Please lower your seatback tray. Thank you. Now... would you like the beige, or the mauve? <br><br>
We have a charter airline, Skyservice, where the food and service are very good. I have flown with them several times to Cuba and have always received first class attention. The food is quite good and for the fellas, seconds are available if you're still hungry.<br>If you fly AirCanada you are lucky if you get a tiny bag of pretzels.<br><br>
Loc: Sydney, Down Under
I normally fly Singapore Airlines and I find the food quite good. The worst I ever had was on Pan Am (a loooooong time ago) from San Fran to Hong Kong and all I got was a couple tiny burgers wrapped in gladwrap.<br><br>
I normally fly Singapore Airlines and I find the food quite good<br>Very possible.<br><br>Here the JAL was rated as the best inflight food you could get = Asian fair.<br><br>Still the meals are mass produced between all airlines (they don't have Benehana chefs on board)<br><br>So the airlines orders the food from kitchens like - Sky Chefs or Chelsie international. At the cost of 5 to 10 dollars for lunch and 15 to 20 dollars for dinner. The meal size is determine by aircaft storage capabilities = always small and pre wrapped and ready to re-heat. Sorta like stacking TV diners.<br><br>Its all a moot point.<br>The airlines charge you for the meal in the price of the ticket to begin with, does not matter if you eat it or not - you have already paid for it in the price of the ticket.<br><br>My guess is;<br>The airlines whats to grab more money by making you pay for a meal. After all they do have a captive audience for the longest movie.<br><br>
I like to get to the airport early and usually load up on pizza, etc before it is time to board. I also have a friend who "brownbags" his travel and gets his favorite sandwiches, chips and other snacks whenever he desires on the flight.He doesn't trust airline food.<br>Would I pay for a meal? Probably, if they had something interesting.<br><br>
Trust me its included in the price of the ticket. If you eat it or not.<br>Maybe they should give you cash back if you don't eat the meal?? I don't know.<br><br>One thing is for sure is to bring your own food.<br><br>
Don't get me wrong. I DO eat the food that they give me too.<br>All the way down to the cookie that tastes like cardboard.<br>I just have low expectations and eat the "fun" stuff before I board.<br><br>
