NW is really awful...although they are getting a bit, just a bit better
Are they getting better? Last time I flew them consisted of a lactating flight attendant who went down the aisle and burped "open up!" and sprayed dinner into the faces of the passengers.
In all reality, domestic US coach meals are non-existant for the most part.. it's hard to critique what doesn't exist. Internationally, It's hard to beat the asian carriers.. To pinpoint the "best" is pointless.. meals vary from flight-to-flight and ground catering at different airports across the globe.
It's not like Airlines have kitchens where they have chefs with tall paper hats sauteeing scallions and lobster tails below the terminals of the aiport in which they have service to.
Gategourmet, Skychefs, and a small handful of others provide the meals for countless carriers... not the airline.
This topic should be "Ground Catering Company with the best meal service".
