Hey i was wondering what the crew meals are like. Are they bigger then the regular passenger meals which can be quite small at times? I think that some if not all airlines have a policy where the capt and 1st officer eat diff meals to avoid food poisining. Lets say the capt took the meal theat the 1st officer wanted and he is a picky eater is he out of luck or is he allowed to bring food aboard. Oh yea are any pilots on this fourm sick of eating airline food.

It depends on the airline, Dan Air used to give their crews a packet of crisps and a loaf of bread.... Ryanair give their crews NOTHING.... RAM gave lobster for the Captain and a gateaux.... My present airline offers the cockpit crew meals from First Class...... But after watching their behaviour, i personally feel that they shouldnt be fed at all.......

The airline I worked for had a rule about flight deck crew meals - two different meals, cooked in two different ovens, served at two different times. The meals were usually different than passenger meals, and roughly the same type and quality of food except there was usually a couple of extra things on the tray - often a piece of fruit or an extra snack like granola bar. The food was usually pretty good.

Im surprised that none of the flight crew is sick of the food on airlines. I personally love it but ive flown AA quite a few times and had the same choices on all the flights even with a first class meal i would have thought more of the crew would be sick of eating the same thing. Are Crew allowed to bring maybe a cold cut deli sandwich from the airport or is that not allowed.

I think the crew probably eat biz or first class meals. Pilots obviously as previously noted eat something different. Sxmarbury33, my best guess is that they could probably bring a deli sandwich on board(as long as they eat it when pax are sleeping or all in their seats)
Give me a break, I created this username when I was a kid...

As FA I rarely eat the food the airline provides for us or the passengers on board. Let's face it: Airline food is glorified junk.
As for cockpit crew I agree with Ambasaid: Yes some cockpit crew do not deserve to be fed at all !
