The best inflight meal I have had was breakfast on an Air UK F100 in May 1995.(or was it KLMuk by then?). There was a hot dish of omelette, bacon, sausage,tomato,possibly hash brown too. There was also a bowl (plastic carton) of corn flakes cereal and also bread roll with jam and butter. The flight was only 1hr 15 between MAN and AMS but it was better than any long haul meal I've had . Perhaps the departure time of 6.30 am had something to do with it.
So lads and lasses, what's the best inflight meal you've had?
Don't try to keep up with the Joneses - bring them down to your level !

It's sad to say that it has been this long since getting good in flight food.
Back in 84, I flew World Airways BWI-OAK. On the return trip, it was a morning flight, I had ham and cheese quiche, biscuit w/honey, fresh fruit, OJ and coffee. Was about the best damn breakfast I ever had!
Lately though, the best in flight meal was the chicken salad sandwich on herb foccacia bread that I bought at the sandwich counter at ORD on the way back to MDT!
My glass is neither 1/2 empty nor 1/2 full, rather, the glass itself is twice as big as it should be.

When I flew longhaul with Air China last summer the food was very nice, we had two meals onboard each way between London and Beijing, beef, chicken and fish - all very nice. My biggest surprise was that they served Coffee Mate with the hot drinks, the only airline I have flown which does.
Short haul, KLM is good as is BA's all day Delhi, but I prefer Lufthansa's product on the whole. On my last flight with them from MUC-LHR the flight was half empty so they came round with seconds for those who wanted it, including the offer of more beer.

Air Caledonie International SYD-NOU, June 96. Full 3 course meal on one very overloaded tray, with seafood salad, some kind of very yummy beef casserole, a fruit tart and cheese platter, all with a nice Aussie Semillion Chardonnay - excellent.

In 1996, I flew DEN-IND on UA in a 737. The meal was a hamburger (made from soy, I think) with chips and candy on the side. Being 10 years old at the time, I liked it. All the other meals I've had in Y were mainly unmemorable, non-existant or disgusting.
Once though in 2001, I flew BMI from LHR-CDG in the 737 business class and there was actually a meal served, though I opted not to eat as I was not hungry at all. It consisted of an typical english breakfast with eggs and sausage, and I remember my parents saying that it was very good.

2003 on SAS from CPH to MXP. Great salad of cured salmon with some herring and nice boiled new potatoes with dill and a beer. This followed up a nice flight from SEA with good catering, lots of free beverage service and great staff, and a visit to the mid-terminal restaurant/ber in CPH for some oysters, smoked salmon and a glass of champagne. By far the most civilized trip I'ver ever had in coach.

Haagen Das ice-cream served after an average meal on a CX flight. CX seems to specialise in stir-fry noodles drenched in oil and with nothing much else in it . . .
I remember in the mid-80s, as a youngster, flying on JL with Japanese noodles, that was interesting. Other than that, hats off to QF for those salads served on domestic routes, probably best meal on short-haul flights I've had for a while.
I did rather like a QF breakfast served from CHC to AKL one morning, the omelette was OK, but it was the first and only time I was served a whole banana on a flight!!!

A Full English Breakfast on Astraeus! Can't really remember what I had but I do remember that it was very tasty and filling! Looking forward to trying another breakfast out this Friday with Thomas Cook Airlines!

Best economy meal was onboard Air Austral (UU), flying RUN to HAH, in April 02.
Really nice salmon and vegetables, and dessert too. I was actually not looking forward to this segment after having flown MAN-CDG-RUN in J.
I really recomment UU.

Back in 85 I flew from Melbourne to Adelaide on Ansett and I was very surprised about the wonderful hot breakfast they had served back then. Especially considering the short distance/flying time.
On my way back to Melbourne I flew on Trans Australia and not only were their cutlery plastic, the food tasted plastic as well.
These days airlines safe so much on extras and it shows. I usually find the portions far too small and less tasty. But then again, I sit in a plane and not in a restaurant. Its all food that has been prepared hours before, so what do you expect?

Have you flown the new A330-200s?? The service hasn't changed too much from what you describe & the aircraft has one of the nicest interiors that come through AKL. It's top notch.
