find out what meals airlines serve, some of them look truely rank.

Did you know that all airline food at ground level tastes overpoweringly strong. This is because it is! The flavours need to be twice as stong as they do on groundlevel because when we're flying, our sinuses get blocked - greatly effecting taste.

Maybe this makes me sound weird....but i love airline food!!!!Theres something quite appealing in the synthetic taste!!!Its the part of the flight i get most excited about....the anticipation of what they are gonna give you!!!On my flight to america last year, it was an overnight flight so all the lights were off, movies on and they came around handing out slices of pizza!!!!How exciting is that, it was like one big sleepover....minus the fact no-one really speaks to eachother and you have some random creepy guy drooling on your shoulder!

I also enjoy inflight meals. Often it's something different to what I usually eat. And I never get off a plane hungry

I know it's a bit redundant, but Business Class meals taste way better than those in Economy. I still think of the meals I had in the ANA Business Class, not to mention the wine... *dreamy*

Midwest Express used to have the best meals...champegne breakfasts etc...now on all US flights it is 'food for purchase', a sandwich, chips, cookie pack for 5 bucks, or the more filling LARGER sandwich/salad, chips, cookies pack for 15 dollars. Now the only thing you get for free is the beverage service and a pack of peanuts/pretzels!

Airplane food seems to rank right up there with moldy cardboard on my list of favorites. Not sorry to see the free meals go honestly.

I look forward to airlines meals once I'm on the plane - especially if it's a long flight. I don't know if Air New Zealand makes particularly tasty meals or else I was going giddly on the flight - but, mmm. If no one else was next to me I would have licked that plate clean.

We haven't encountered the "food for purchase" flights yet. Most have still been the included "hot" sandwich with chips, etc - blech! Did have the "Bistro" meal for the San Diego flight - a large cooler at the gate containing "sack lunches" that you grabbed as you passed through. Mr. Isa had read something about getting better food if you place an order for a "special diet". When he booked the flights, he requested Kosher - thinking it might be better. Since it was "Bistro", he didn't think there would be a special Kosher meal for us (so he grabbed two regulars). On the plane, the flight attendant called out our names and we got "Kosher Bistro" meals. Now we had 2 meals each - neither of which were any good. (Mr. Isa has re-thought the "special meal" deal idea.)

most flights i've been on recently have been the type where you pay for the food, its not too bad, just your usual prepacked overcharged sandwhiches, pringles , drinks ,etc....... the last free meal was horrible though, soggy meat with rock hard vegtables, Yuck !
