First Choice 5 Star Restaurant

Tue Oct 12, 2004 6:32 pm

Recently flew to Greece on a morning flight from Manchester on a First Choice B757 200 and the breakfast served on the plane was one of the best I have ever tasted and I don’t just mean the best breakfast on a plane I mean anywhere, the food on the way back was just as good also.

Is all plane food this good now and has the stereotypical bad plane food gone for good.

There has been a drastic improvment with Charter Airline foods these past few years, My Travel have a good meal as did Flying Colours (I presume TCX still have the same good service).

Air Malta (Charter) food was good this year, I really enjoyed it.

Makes a change to hear someone posting something good about airline food!

Glad you enjoyed your breakfast on First Choice but somehow I do not think it could be rated 3 star, let alone 5 star. It is true that catering on some charter flights has improved particularly if you go back a few years when you were lucky to get anything. However, once on a charter flight I thought the meal served was disgusting, yet the passenger next to me thought it was one of his best meals ever!

Another reason for the improvement is that you often pay extra for a meal on a charter flight. If it was the typical pig swill, I think very few people would be willing to pay the extra.

I agree with BCAL.

With the rapid increase in low cost carrier ticket sales, and good cure would be increasing the quality inflight meal. Only seems right to 'iron' out this crease with a few charters making the effort, after all thats about the only difference.

In this case competition has resulted in the better bellies for holiday makers!!!! (and the same old todge for long haul passengers!)

Roll on Ryanair Atlantic!

in this case I recommend you "Air Madrid" from MAD to South America - the first long haul flight where you have to buy your food and drinks - just 20 Euros for the meal .... enjoy!
TWA - we showed you how good we have been!
