Food For Thought

Airline food has gained legendary status among travellers; from the dire to the very good the variety of food served on board aircraft is astonishing. The logistical challenge of preparing, transporting, heating and serving a tasty meal within the weight and space restrictions of an aeroplane has taxed generations of airlines. Despite some operators now cutting out all food service to keep prices down, most still provide meals and do strive to produce food which does the carrier credit.

If you are curious about what’s being served on, say, Ariana Afghan Airlines, what breakfast looks like on Druk Air or whether Ukraine International’s grub is up to scratch then is the website for you. The site contains an extensive archive of photographs showing meals from thousands of flights from last week to the 1960’s.
They welcome new material, so next time you’re flying why not take a snap of the food on your tray table and send it in. It all goes to prove that you really can find anything on the internet.
