Will We Ever See Inflight Meals Again In The U.S.?

What do you think? I for one liked the included inflight meals (in coach). I think it's outrageous that on a 5 to 6 hour transcon I get "savory mix" and two cokes. Bringing food on an airplane is an option, but how good is the pizza from the terminal after 3 hours in flight?

They may have tasted like TV dinners (some were actually quite good), but they kept the hunger pangs away on longer flights and, for one thing, kept people busy. The meal service was something to look forward to on a flight. Will I ever hear again,

"Omelette or Cereal?"
"Lasagna or the Burger?"

Anything is possible in this crazy business! But I highly doubt it. Airlines are responding to most customers demands for the absolute lowest price. While airline meals only cost a few dollars add that up times millions of people per year.

I've long ago given up on either seeing an inflight meal, or getting an edible one. So what I do is to buy a "Submarine Sandwich" (or whatever you call them locally) and as long as you hold off of the very liquid type sauces they stay fresh for hours. I've had many an envious glance as I pull the foot-long sandwich out of my carry-on and have a healthy meal while they survive on yet another pack of "pretzels" or some such junk. I think the airlines only give away the salted snack mix type stuff to try and increase drink sales which have a high profit margin.

I agree. With the exception of F/C class, complimentary meal service is most likely a thing of the past. Most passengers select flights based on cost, schedule, and loyalty program.

Personally I do not miss the in-flight meals. I'd rather eat in the terminal or bring something healthier with me.

I think that they will slowly come back in the industry. As we all know, 9/11 is what really put the end to inflight meals. I think that the only thing that can be done in order to bring back inflight meals would be demand or a new carrier bringing inflight meals and others will soon follow, take for instance the seatback tvs on US airlines. Correct me if im wrong, but I believe it was B6 that started this trend, soon after airlines like Frontier and Song (now delta) followed the trend. I surely hope that they come back. I know that first class meals have even gone down hill. United has changed the majority of their inflight domestic first class meals from a table cloth to a plastic tray to a paper liner. I have heard rumours that AA will be removing all ovens from their domestic aircraft. Which means that first class pax flying MIA-LAX will have a choice between a salad or sandwhich basically. US Airways wont give a meal in first class unless the flight is over 3-3.5 hrs, along with Delta. The only airline that seems to be continuing the highest inflight service is CO. They will give you actual food on a flight 2 hours and up. First class recieve a full hot meal service I belive 1.5 hrs and up. Alaska has downgraded, they no longer offer free inflight meals to economy class passengers, they switched to FFP. So enough rambling. Bottom line is SOMETHING HAS TO CHANGE THIS IS GETTING REDICULOUS!!!!

From what's been discussed about this, it's not a "meal" in the traditional sense though, it's more like a small sandwich of some sort and a little bag of mini-carrots or chips. More than others offer for sure, but it shouldn't be confused with what we've traditionally known as "meal service".

Quoting FSPilot747 (Thread starter):
The meal service was something to look forward to on a flight. Will I ever hear again,

"Omelette or Cereal?"
"Lasagna or the Burger?"

With the trend to replace galleys with more seats, I doubt if we'll ever see a return to traditional meal service as we knew it in the main cabin. It was only a dozen years ago that you could count on a hot meal (not a sandwich, but a real meal) on United for flights as short as SFO-SEA during traditional mealtimes.

I am more than happy to pay for a hot full meal in coach. Check out the onboard menu on Australia's Virgin Blue....
http://www.virginblue.com.au/flightI...n=Virgin%20Blue%20In-flight%20Menu

They even offer hot breakfast and dinners for $8.50 Australian. I would pay $10US for something comparable. But then the Aussies are a little more sophisticated than us Americans. We like our processed junk food with all those preservatives and trans-fats.

Why not? You gladly pay the lower fares. That doesn't come free.


And for the record, I think we are already beginning to see the resurgence of meals, but it's a slow process. The DL snack basket was arguably a competitve response to DH (who did the same thing), but it has stayed. NW is expanding food options in F while finding that the trail mix sells well in back. I would argue that getting rid of meals after 9/11 was, like a lot of actions in late 2001 and early 2002, a rather knee jerk response to a problem the airlines did not know how to deal with. As we move farther from 9/11, I would expect to see at least some tweaking of this, just as capacity is back to pre 9/11 levels and fares are inching upward again. Does that mean meals just like pre-9/11 again? Likely not, but there will be adjustments.

Actually B6 & WN offered snack boxes on their transcontinental flights prior to DH's start to the West Coast. On today's press release regarding DL's official announcement of the enhanced transcontinental service, it has stated buy-on-board service will return to coach for those flights only.

I'm confused. To my knowledge, DH was the first to offer the snack basket on relatively short (<1000 miles) stage lengths. Is that not accurate? I don't believe WN has ever offered the basket on hops like MDW-HOU.

Agreed! I've often wondered what the average traveller's weight and vocabulary would be if airlines in the 1950s and 1960s had decided to keep their passengers amused with, say, Scrabble, or crossword puzzles, or whatever, rather than in-flight meals.

At MIA, check out the "Top of the Port" -- the restaurant at the top of the airport hotel. The entrance is near the Air Jamaica checkin counter (Concourse E?) -- take the elevator up to the 7th floor. They have decent food at fair prices, and actually quite a good wine selection -- but it'll cost more than Subway, of course.
