Most people dislike airline (or airport lounge) food, but for me, there are a lot of items that I actually like. For example, I love the cheese and crackers and little cans of Coke. I also love the warm bread rolls and the feel of cold cutlery (when it's been in the cart)... a bit nerdy, I know.
Am I the only one? Or are there certain items of the inflight meal service you actually enjoy?

Pretzel bread sandwiches with a cold Heineken on LH, fresh coffee and Biscoff cookies on DL, and ANYTHING QF and NZ serves.
I just wish WN would serve a CAN of beer or a SPLIT of wine instead of pouring it in that lame plastic cup for a one shot serving; however, that is just about my only gripe on WN so it shakes out OK I guess.

Quoting BasilFawlty (Reply 10): I find it very interesting that in the daily life almost nobody drinks tomato juice, but onboard an aircraft lots of people order it.
It is indeed a strange phenomenon. While I do not mind drinking tomato juice once in a while when on the ground, I really crave for LH's tomato juice whenever I get a chance to fly them. The juice served has just the right taste to it while the tomato juice I have tried on other airlines has always been too sweet.
As far as I remember, LH or some other institution investigated this phenomenon and they came to the conclusion that your taste buds crave for something spicy and of thick consistence up in the air and as many domestic flights do not offer any type of food, people order tomato juice instead.
I am off to the Avalon Air Show tomorrow morning and will certainly have some tomato juice on my QF flight to MEL even though too sweet.
I've heard so many people rave about Biscoff cookies (biscuits)...I'm curious to know what it is exactly that people see in those things, not having tried them myself! It seems like people prefer them to a proper meal in Y!!

I've never seen WN do this. I always get a can of beer. Heineken or Corona please

Can't quite explain it but DL Biscoff cookies are the best. Very moorish.
There again, these are hardly exclusive items defining an airlines cuisine, I can buy them in any supermarket (minus the DL logo on the cookie of course)

Drink-wise in no particular order
Pepsi (Coke an acceptable, if somewhat inferior, alternative)
Gin and tonic (preferably Bombay), especially the US if-you're-lucky way: a cup full of gin, a cup full of tonic...
Australian white wine from the SQ "cellar."
Any wine on QF.
Chocolates and/or Biscoff on pretty much any long-haul flight ex BRU
Had some good mushroom soup on CO once, even asked for seconds (I was hungry).
Any meal on QR ex DOH or QF ex Australia.

Orange juice, smoked salmon and beef. Of course, not forgetting cheese and crackers! Specifically referring to TG's wonderful catering.
For breakfast, had a wonderful scrambled eggs on MI so that is definitely on my favourites every time I fly. When flying, I usually try not getting any dish that I can easily get on the ground like Chicken Rice or Fried Carrot Cake which are both Singaporean delicacies.
One way I will fly around the world!
