What Food Is Allowed To Bring On Board In EU?

Yesterday my wife booked our summer holiday to Greece. The Transavia Airlines ticket (it's NOT a Transavia BasiqAir ticket) is an "á la carte"-ticket which means that airline meals are not included in the ticket price but can be ordered from the menu card. I have my doubts to expect a broad choice. Anyway, what kind of food are passengers allowed to bring on board for their own consumption on charter flights within the EU? Hypothetic: is it forbidden for passengers to sell the food, which they brought with them, to other passengers? Could it be a niche market to buy food at your local supermarket and to sell it later to your co-passengers?

Check-in agent: "We have empty seats near 4A (Subway), 12F (Pizza Hut) and 26A (Burger King). Which one would you prefer today?"  Nuts

That's an intriguing question. But isn't illegal to re-sell such products?

If the airline sells food, check their terms and conditions. If there is nothing , you can bring your food and drinks. But they may have restrictions.
Would you go to a restaurant bringing your food? Do you think they would accept you ?

About your second idea, forget it. It is called black market. You don't pay taxes, you are not registered as a business, and so on.

Reselling would certainly be frowned upon and may be illegal.

Bringing your own food for your own use is no problem, many people do it.

Transavia has quite decent food, similar to (and sometimes better than) KLM.
The menu on their flights depends on the length of the trip and time of day.

Do pizza boys deliver at the aircraft? I would like to have a pizza 'quattro formagi' so I'm sure the seats around me are not occupied  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I see your point, but we don't fly on planes in order to eat. I think it would be unreasonable for an airline to refuse to allow passengers to fly on the basis of whether they are carrying food/water with them. I don't think there are in fact any rules which expressly forbid this anyway.

I quite liked buzz's idea - charging for food, but the food and beverage was actually much better than on other (even full-service) airlines. I believe some airlines in the US are now experimenting with this.
