Absolutely not. I always bring food to eat. I once brought a pizza onto a US Airways flight (it was one of those personal sized ones). Don't worry about what other people think, they should have brought their own food.

Good Lord no!
Why on earth would it be rude? With the scarcity of actual meals these days, its often the only way to get a bite to eat. I cant think of any reason why anybody would consider it rude- its not like you are having a Piza Hut pizza in church or something!!!

I do tend to agree with the other posts thus far, but I would not consider it crazy to think that many may considre it to be rude or annoying. I was on a Delta flight yesterday from Atlanta to Orlando (58 minutes in the air,) and the people behind me brought tons of food on board. It was a little annoying because it smelled up the whole cabin of the plane. It certainly was not the end of the world, but it did kind of bother me from that standpoint. After all, when I would recline in my seat, the odor of the food was quite evident and obvious, and it was not the type of smell that was appealing. But there are certainly bigger issues in the world, so it was not that big of a deal. But I would not go so far as to say that it is a completely harmless thing to do.

On December, 22nd 2000, I was flying from MUC to ZAG onboard Lufthansa CityLine ARJ-85 and the girl sitting next to me put out her food out of her bag and didn´t care about anyone who was looking at her... F/As didn´t say anything...

I brought a pizza on a NW 727 this summer I attracted the attention of some 'well-fed ' people sitting behind me... damn was that a good pizza.
A few weeks ago I brought Krispy Kreme doughnuts (2 dozen) onboard an A320 to DEN from PHX and to BIL from DEN on a 735... didn't eat any on plane though.. attracted attention EVERYWHERE.. hehe, the screeners were like "I don't think the F/A will allow those to be brought aboard... we're going to have to inspect those "

Not at all! I my recent flight, EWR-MSP on CO 737, I noticed a couple with their own packed lunches from home. The odd thing is, they just got off a flight from London on Virgin Atlantic. How do I know? Well, they have these tiny bags that had smints, and other things in it, labeled with VIRGIN ATLANTIC, and the lady said it was a nice flight. I am thinking about bringing my own food on long flights, on short flights, I bring candy, but I usually end up eating the food from the airline.

I certainly don't have too much of a problem with people bringing their own food. However, people must be discreet and avoid 'smelly' or sloppy food.
Which means fast food is out. Eat that crap Macca's / Pizza or Burger King BEFORE you board the aircraft. No-one wants the stench of Fast Food stinking up the confines of an aircraft for an hour or so.
Just a little common courtesy and no one will mind.

Considering some airlines' food, I wouldn't blame you if you brought your own. I don't think it would be rude as long as you don't make a big scene about it. Maybe eat while you're doing something else so it doesn't make you look like you're trying to tease the person sitting next to you- don't look at them either while you're eating or else they might think you're rude. However, as long as you don't make a mess or a scene over it I think it's fine. I often bring snacks onboard so I have some munchies for later on in the flight, especially if a meal won't be served.

I dont think its rude at all !! Just what I hate is if sometimes people onboard (or next to me) stuff all the airplane lunch in their bags that they can get and behave as it it was an all you can eat buffet. They ask for 20 "little" bottles of orange juice and that mineral water in the yoghurt cup or take all the lunchboxes they can find.. I think that is stupid.
You made me hungry now...what would I give for a small PIZZA HUT pepperony and cheese pizza @ charlotte airport ..jaahm..to bad I am in austria !!

Most US airlines serve proper meals on Int'l flights from N. America as well, 9V-SVE, but on domestic routes (which can last up to 6 hours in the US and Canada), many airlines are cutting food services making it nearly necessary to bring your own food (if you can't live until the flight's over to eat!).
Get your patchouli stink outta my store!
