“But this kind of limits the kinds of meals you would be able to get to basically cold food, right? Or, if it is hot food, you would pretty much have to eat it right away, else your hot food would get cold!

If the logistics can be worked out and the quality of food is better than the slop they have been serving lately, I would go for it. But this would only apply to the longer flights like the transcons where hot food is normally served. On shorter or connecting flights, like on AA
where you would take a bistro bag as you board, cold food is the only food choice. I would rather have a choice of better food than what was in the bistro bags, even if I had to pay for it. Considering what the air fares are today, I would gladly pay 10 dollars to get a quality hot meal on board.
Some airplanes do not have ovens in them or the ovens were taken out after hot food was eliminated on the shorter runs. I remember flying EA
in the 1980’s on 727’s and getting a hot meal on a 2 hour flight. Those days are long gone, along with the ovens on the planes that fly these runs today, all you get now in a bag of stale pretzels.
I am a member of AA
’s Admiral Club and now for the past year they have been selling deli sandwich’s in the club, they come in a plastic to go package with condiments. There is a good choice and they are delicious and around 7 dollars. On my last flight from LGA
connecting in DFW
, I bought a sandwich just before I left the club to board my flight and ate in on board when they served refreshments. If they can do it at the club, they can do it at check in time and picked up near the gate.
