I think that meals are a great part of the inflight service. It's very different from one airline to another...
My best experience was on a flight from CDG to DUB of the former Air Inter: they served us foie gras with red or white french wine... That was great...
My worst meal were on Aeroflot...

Its interesting, my best and worst meals were both on BA. For the most part, BA does an excellent job with their meal service, but once, between LHR and Madrid, we were served Tomato Sandwiches in First Class! Another interesting meal was on Aeromexico when they had Duck Liver for dinner- they managed to make it like most other airline food, bland and tasteless.

my best meal was probably either on AA biz class, ORD-ZRH and I had this spicy gourmet chicken and it was just the best meal I had eaten in ahwhile, or LGA-DFW and I had this spicey pizza that was to die for, BA comes a very close second, I have not had one bad meal flying them.
Give me a break, I created this username when I was a kid...

My travels have taking me over the pond a few times and across North America.
My best inflight food was on BA, ATL-LGW last fall. It was out of this world! The meal was very filling. The menu, which I kept like always included: For dinner, Shrimp, potato and lima bean salad served w/ grilled chicken breast with Parmentier potatoes, roasted vegetables and a basil and sun-dried tomato sauce. I was lucky enough and still hungry too, when the stedward came through I asked if there were any meals left? He answered in the charmed voice, "Yes sir, would you care to try the chicken or the beef?" Seeing that I had just enjoyed the chicken potion of the flight, I choose the beef. Baked penne pasta with beef, spinanch and mozzarella. Both meals were served w/ chocolate cheesecake and cheddar cheese and crackers on the side. Not to forget that I had a nice full glass of white wine w/ both meals.
Staying state side, I enjoy many meals on transcontinental flights, mainly aboard DAL, UAL, and the less talked about Froniter airlines. Frontier does not serve full meals, however they serve a very fulling breakfast wrap along w/ the afternoon snack of a grilled chicken wrap w/ a bag of chips and a sugar cookie.
The best inflight meal that beats all above was on board Eastern airlines coming from LGA-ATL when I was twelve years old. I had the best lasagna have served w/ salad, green beans, and a huge dinner roll w/ enough butter to clog my Uncle Harry's heart for weeks!!

For full meal service, the best I have had has been on American's Flagship Service transcon flights from JFK to LAX and SAN, which include lobster, salmon, and caviar as appetizers. As far as the entree itself, the best has been chicken monterrey on a flight from ORD to SAN during spring break.

On a Qantas 747-200 flight from HNL to SYD, and another flight on a QF 747-400 SYD-CNS, I've had the best inflight meals ever. On HNL-SYD, it was a beef dinner, and the fish(I think it was halibut) was surprisingly good on the SYD-CNS flight.

The best meal I have had was UA Biz class from SFO-NRT-PEK and back, but that was probably just because I was in business. The best coach meal I have had was on Cathay Pacific. They gave us a huge portion of rather good tempura and rice. Worst meal was on either UA from SFO to Kona, or on Air China from PEK to Xi'an. But on Air China the flight was only an hour and 25 minutes, so for someone who knows only American standards of airline service that was pretty good in itself!

Virgin has great chicken, veggie and beef meals between JFK-LHR. CO has great turkey snadwiches with chips and drinks on the EWR-SFO route as well. I love SIA's terryake chicken dinners on the LAX-Singapore route.

Best food I have ever had was on Olympic Airways... ok they might have financial problems, but their food is great, and not because I am Greek...
P.S Because I am Greek I can tell the difference between a good and a bad Musaka... and the one I had once in a OA's flight was as good as my mother's...
P.S.2 Mama send me money (your son is starving)...just kidding
