    Am I alone in hating airplane food?

    I always feel a bit sick and nauseous on flights.

    The food doesn't make it any better so I pretty much skip all meals on the flight

    But when I look around everyone else is rather happily eating. :apig:

    Anyone else like me?

    everyone complains of airline food.

    if you don't like it pack your own.

    Ephesians 4

    29Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

    Meh, I'm not fussy. If I'm hungry, I'll eat whatever they serve up.

    I dont mind it it is better than hospital food. Remember they have to fit 500 people's meals onto a tube flying through the air at 800 km/h, cut them some slack.

    Re: Am I alone in hating airplane food?

    All the plane food I've had has been nice (Royal Brunei + Qantas), I shouldn't of been on those planes, but a Jetstar instead (which was cancelled so they had to get us back to Sydney via those airlines, and the Jetstar didn't come with any food included with the ticket), so I can't complain.
    The muffins Qantas had were really yummie


    This is an interesting site to look through AirlineMeals.net

    Qantas, Vietnam, Malaysian, United and Singapore all have nice food. Those are the only airlines I've flown upon, and they all have nice food - so yeah, the food is pretty nice.

    It's because you're going on the crummy airlines and are most likely going on economy.

    Research a bit to see which airlines are highly rated and go on them or pay more for your fare to get better food

    I hate aeroplane food, eat at the terminal and then wait till you arrive, not much fun travelling to London or something like that

    Re: Am I alone in hating airplane food?

    I hate plane breakfasts - I cant stand UHT milk/oven cooked eggs (no stoves on planes)

    But the lunch/dinner on Qantas economy is pretty good tbh - usually a curry with rice/meat with vegetables + chocolate, salad and ice cream

    I'd even say it was on par/better than BA business food in terms of quality (obviously there's less)

    The food on Air China is revolting however

    Also, it depends where you're flying from... the catering in Sydney is good but in other ports (e.g. Singapore) it can be pretty shit

    This for me. I can't stand plane breakfasts, I usually skip or just eat fruit or something instead. The combination of flying, hot fatty food and early morning is too much for me, I guess. But I'm fine with the rest of the food, mostly.

    I eat the cake and the fruit. I also drink the juice that comes in the sealed cup. The rest of the food can go to hell.

    Jesus Christ guys! You go on an plane to get from A to B, hence transport. If you want good food, go to a restaurant, not a plane.

    I don't really care about plane food as long as my stomach shuts tfu on a long flight. I personally hate flights with crap entertainment

    Good thing about Jetstar/Virgin/Tiger is that you can actually buy decent and "real" food off the menu.

    Id rather pay Virgin $28 to go to Sydney and buy my own food than pay Qantas $115. Its only 1hr flying time!
