About a week ago, I was surfing through Airlinemeals.net and I recently uploaded my photo. I was just letting people know that if you are interested in what many airlines serve, this site is for you. I have seen many questions on this forum on What does this airline serve, or what does that airline serve?. So if you are interested, check it out. I have learned alot about what airlines serve what after this economic downturn.

I don't like junk food on the plane! I prefer to have full course hot meals on the domestic flights and even one-hour flights as well!

Please tell me your joking right? Anyone who needs a full course meal on a one hour flight needs their stomach stapled.  Big grin

Airlines should scrap meals altogether on all flights. Period. That would save them a shit load of money and in any case, the food is usually trivial and not very good. Premium cabin should retain meal service. You think you'll get hungry, bring your own food or eat at the airport. Suck it up. You want cheap fares, you don't get five course meals. But, charging people $100 for standby on the same day of travel is highway robbery.

ContinentalEWR, to an extent, I agree with you on that one. Airlines should offer like a bag of chips or pretzels and a drink like AirTran does, and jetBlue. But Full Course Meals such as Fish, and stuff on a 2-3 hour flight is ridiculous. Bring your own snacks and food. Many people go 2-3 Days without food.

Is it? Are you sure? Some people are actually willing to pay more for reasonable legroom and food.

Many people go 2-3 Days without food.

Only on jetBlue and Air Tran

And you would know this how.???

I do not believe that there are such things as flights that last 2-3 days, especially on these 2 carriers. Back your Facts Jack.

I have three pics presently on airlinemeals.net...on USAirways I have a pic of a first class meal for a PHL-FLL flight, and on CO I have an Economy meal for IAH-SJO, and Economy snack for BHX-EWR...photos are under the name Greg Rosenthal...

I too think the Ryanair empty tray pics are a riot...

continentalewr,

why do you make such harsh statements?

why airlines should scrap meals?
too much utilitarian attitude?
are planes just tubes that take you from here to there?
Is service an unknown topic to you and airlines?
food, as you might know, plays an important role not only for the stomach but for the brain as well.
It gives a lot of passengers not only a way to fill their bellies but also a diversive and a detour from thoughts, stress, fear of flying, way of passing time etc.
Did you ever try to bring food on airlines outside the US?
Have you ever noticed the faces of the people around you and the ones of the flight attendants?
That is because there is still ( less and less) a certain feeling and atmosphere associated with travelling, and especially travelling by air. People are used to be served something, and are used ( to a certain extent) to be dressed in a "proper manner": many would fine plainly rude to fly in shorts or sandals.
It is associated -and here we go back to food- to the fact that air travel was something of an experience,that you pay for.

I may agree with you that if you pay rack bottom fares, maybe you should not be entitled to food, but if you end up paying big big bucks, even in coach, you should get food and drinks

BR715, I was joking.

Continental EWR, you're telling me a family of 4/5 on an LHR-SYD flight should bring their own food? Don't be rediculous.

They cost more than they are worth

Basically - yes. You don't go to a restaurant to get from Denver to Cleveland, why would you go to an airline for a meal?

Is service an unknown topic to you and airlines?

Not at all. But I would rather pay a low fare and bring my own food than pay a high fare to get a Swanson frozen dinner

Books or music do more. Indeed, I would think manay fearful flyers wouldn't want to eat on a plane, lest they end up using the barf bag in front of 200 strangers.

Did you ever try to bring food on airlines outside the US?

Never tried to bring any food on an international flight. But sure, I've brought food on US flights - and I've had flight attendants ask if they could have some!

That is because there is still ( less and less) a certain feeling and atmosphere associated with travelling, and especially travelling by air. People are used to be served something, and are used ( to a certain extent) to be dressed in a "proper manner": many would fine plainly rude to fly in shorts or sandals.

No doubt that many folks take "casual dress" a little far. But look at any office with "casual days"...there's always someone who's going to blow it for everyone by wearing jeans and a "Big Johnson" t-shirt to work. It's human nature.

It is associated -and here we go back to food- to the fact that air travel was something of an experience,that you pay for.

Indeed, in the good old days it was. Today it is more of a mass transit system.

Well, when I travel on medium or long haul flights, I use to buy stuff in a food corner and bring in on board. I don't really like most of catering products, especially those classi small piece of chicken, green peas and hard-boiled potatoes...no need to talk about the classic omelet and sausage before the arrival, yuuuk! Now, about short flights, I don't eat at all....I'm always sick of thos ham-cheese tiny sandwich!

About bad experiences...Once flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur on Malaysian Airlines, I asked if I could have a snack as I was hungry, the FA just told me "listen, I can give you your meal or your omelet but we don't have anything else...", later, he came with small crackers...C'mon, how could I be stuffed with crackers ?  Big grin No, till then, I use to bring hamburgers, sushis or chinese food on board...

cheers,

i think if the airlines moved up to a Swanson/Banquet type frozen dinner, it would definitely be an upgrade from today's standards!!!

Luchzak,

Tell me, my friend, how do you take pictures of your meal ? I mean, how
other passengers surprisingly look at you while taking some pics ?  Big grin
