I would think if anybody did this it would be safeway as they are the largest world wide chain. But I can not imagen many people going to an airport to buy food. And how do they stack there shelves when turbulance hits. I can believe that and grocery stores deliver by planes to store but not a grocery store out of one.
But I must admit while dropping my mum of at LAX to LHR I got a 12 pack of Virgin Cola for free as my mother bounced. So there is a market.
