I once flew NWA DTW-LAX back in 95 and they only had one choice which was chili. I though it was kinda a nasty thing to be serving on a plane with no other choices. Once on airlinemeals.net I saw chili-dogs served as well. Mind you, I am a vegetarian so maybe that has something to do with my problems with it but still. I dunno why I have such a fascination with airline meals but I just find it to be a fun concept. What's have you all has served that was far from appetizing?

When i flew NW from LGW-DTW, the food was horrid. It was a really weird "salad" thing with all sorts of things in it like currents, bits of lettuce and other things.

Utterly disgusting.

Food? What food?  Big grin

I have noticed that most buy on board foods look pretty good, and the passengers seem happy.

The food being served on airlines today isn't even good enough to be served in a fast food restaurant. I was on an 8 hour AA flight DFW to OGG, where the choice was pizza or chicken nuggets. Neither would be good enough to serve in a fast food restaurant.

On another note, the original Frontier airlines would never serve chicken because they didn't consider it to be a high enough quality meat. They usually served steak or lasagna.

I don't usually have a problem with airline food but recently turned my nose up on an AEU flight from MAN-SZG. It was meant to be a Meditteranean vegetable salad in olive oil. When it arrived it was actually a couple of soggy mushrooms and tomatoes floating in a slick from the Exxon Valdez! I don't usually get of planes hungry but i did on this occasion

AS once served these really gross pita chip things as their snack. Basically it was baked pita bread so that it was crispy then seasoned with garlic and dried tomato. First off, anything with garlic should not be served on a plane. Second, they tasted like cardboard with some sort of spice on it.

Ham on any flight going to the middle east would probably be a bad idea.

During my time as an engineering student, I worked at an airline catering company at CPH.

  One December day I didn't concentrate enough about my work preparing the trays for PAX, because the next day my boss told me that I had put marzipan pigs (part of the Christmas tradition in Denmark) on a SAS flight to Istanbul Embarrassment
  Luckily the F/A's found out in good time before serving the food, so they removed the marzipan pigs. The F/A's probably got all the marzipan they could eat and saved the PAX and me from an unpleasant fate Smile

The worst:

On AS: SEA-ANC had the gross omlette platter in FC. It was very gross looking egg. Looked like someone has fried the egg on the sidewalk in PHX and then shipped it to the LSG facility in SEA.

The best:

On AS: SAN-SEA (last flight of the day..) cheese plate in FC. Ok, its not a meal but it was very very good.

The worst meal I got was NW19 (MSP-NRT) on April, 13. They were serving the midnight snack, which consisted of a ham and swiss cheese sandwich, an Oreo cookie, and water. I ate all of them, and I enjoyed every bite. But then, once getting on the next flight, NW79 (NRT-PUS), I realized that the sandwich was lactose-heaven (I'm lactose-intolorant)! I had stomach problems all the way to customs, and I had to go to the bathroom on the plane (Which I only do if I'm about ready to explode) throughout the flight. And to make things worse, there was severe turbulence throughout that entire trip (PIT-MSP-NRT-PUS-NRT-SEA-MSP-PIT)!

CURSE YOU, EVIL SANDWICH!!!!!!!!!! Acting devilish

Chili... agree... Alaska serves that as a dinner choice in first class between Seattle and Anchorage. The last six passengers are stuck with this meal choice -- definitely not a good choice. Plus the smell left throughout the three hours flight... no pleasant...

Reuben sandwich -- United serves that as an entree choice between SFO and JFK in J -- I went to the restroom and the F/As took my order last and I was stuck with this gross entree... one bit was enough for me to put down my fork. Reuben sandwich is good on ground.. but once you froze it and reheated it... it becomes soggy and disgusting...

Fried rice -- just tonight... served Yeung Chow fried rice on JAA business... not a good choice -- soggy... fried rice is a tough dish to prepare in air, so I think airlines should avoid serving fried rice.
