I can say i had the best sponge cake made by CX catering on a flight from HKG- KUL, China Airlines A300

The best dinner i had was on BA MEL-PER-SIN

On my recent flight KUL-MEL MH served me mouldy buns on both meals (dinner and breakfast) which is pretty pathetic,

On BMI from LHR- DUB the breakfast wasnt that good, but i hadnt eaten much before the flight so i ate it!

SR serves some really nice, soft , even WARM(that's very important) bread!!! Most airlines just serve you some hard-as-a-stone, cold, bread!!

Japan Airline also serve great food every time!! Last time, they serve a meal that made me feel really full( I was in Y): some Japanese soba noodle, fish, a nice pudding and fresh salad!!

my best dinner was on an Ansett A320 from Sydney to Brisbane. It was dinner time (about 1920) so they served FULL DINNER!! It was only an one and a half hour flight and we had "roasted chicken and veges with rice"!! With all the sides like salads, piece of cheese cake, cheese and biscuits and coffee and tea and 3 kinds of juices (orange, apple, and mango/orange)... It was the BEST on ANY flight I've been on (but I didn't eat it because I am an vegetarian... DAMN!! and I gave it to my brother who thought it was excellent...)!! I don't know which catering co prepared it though... any of you know?? It was in Oct 1997...
Best lunch was on a Singapore Airlines 744 from Taipei to Singapore prepared by Evergreen Sky Catering (jointly owned by EVA Air, Singapore Airlines and Malaysia Airlines). I ordered VLML (Lacto ovo Vegetarian) and I had some Japanese soba noodles (cold ones which you have soy sauce with it), vegeatble tempura and vegetarian steak with rice, fruits, salads, and a tiny toberlone (sp?) chocolate bar and 4 kinds of juices (pineapple, orange, apple and tomato juice), tea/coffee. And after that they even gave every one of us a small tub of vanilla ice cream for dessert!! Now that's really a feast!!
Also when EVA Air first started the TSA-KHH route with their 762s (50 min domestic flight) I remember they served fried noodles on those flights! It was excellent! But now since UNI Air took over all the domestic flights, they'd only give you a packet of juice with a lousy piece of bread.

Worst meal -- brunch on THAI 773 (from BKK to) MEL to BNE prepared by QANTAS catering... It was early in the morning and they had two pieces of tomatoes with salad on a plate (a really shallow one as well... one you couldn't even fit a , COLD buns with butter (actually the buns were freezing, maybe straight out of the fridge) and a packet of OJ. That's it!! I think Thai shouldn't contract with QANTAS catering anymore...

I heard that bmi also serves hot meals even on their shortest flight.. is it true??

Aside from the obvious lavish feasts when upgraded, my truly favorite economy meal was on VS during a period they were trying "pub food" instead of the pseudo-gourmet stuff. It was just Shepherd's Pie...but it was yummy!

When I was flying SQ (Singapore Air) I was in first class because of a free upgrade I didn't even have... from Hong Kong to SFO the actually cooked the meal right in the kitchen. I didn't even know airlines were allowed to do this... I had a five course meal served on china. In the morning I had the classic American breakfast of fresh cooked eggs, bacon and sausage. YUM!!!!

My worst was TWA lately to from LAX-KOA it was a cold meatball sandwich. The bread was cold and soggy from the sauce, and don'teven get me going on the meatballs, luckily I flew them many times before and had a free upgrade to first class.

The best inflight meals I ever had were on an AA DC-10 between LGW & DFW back in 1990. Coach was full and my buddy and I were bumped up into Business (sometimes it pays to dress nicely when traveling).

We started out with cocktails (in real glasses) before the aircraft was even pushed back from the gate. The FA's brought around hot hors d'oeuvres (crab stuffed button mushrooms, little deviled quail eggs with caviar and warmed mixed nuts) and refreshed drinks within minutes after take off. They also brought menus of the various meal offerings. There were 3 choices of appetizer, 4 entree choices, plus 2 salads and a soup. There was also an obscene dessert trolley that they brought around afterwards. I had the Scottish smoked salmon with proscuitto, melon and fresh blueberries, fresh caeser salad made seat side by the FA, a bacon wrapped filet mignon with duchess potatos and baby asparagus finished off with a delectable slice of New York style cheese cake topped with raspberry and chocolate sauce. I had a wonderful California Merlot with the meal and a Couvosier afterwards.

I slept like a baby until it was time for lunch about an hour and a half out of DFW. We had our choice of fresh deli sandwiches (turkey, ham or roast beef) with cole slaw or potato salad, a fresh fruit plate or a hot chicken alfredo pasta dish. Again we were offered a choice of soup or salad and another pass at the dessert cart.

Since I was used to traveling coach at the time these wonderful meals and exquisite service really stood out and they are still quite fresh in my mind more than 10 years later.

My worst meal was the breakfast that my son and I never got while flying on a Northwest 722 between BOS-TPA in 1991. We were stuck in the very last row on the starboard side of the aircraft (with no window and an earful of PW all the way). Our original seat assignments turned out to be a figment of the computer's imagination and my wife and daughter ended up seated up by the overwing exits. They got a choice of cereal or omlettes and sausage, fruit, juice and a sweet roll. There wasn't an empty seat on the aircraft and by the time they made it to the last row they were out of everything including cereal. The FA apologized and we were offered fruit juice and some pretzels. About 40 minutes later while standing in line to take my son to the lav we walked by the aft galley where two FA's were gobbling up their omlettes and fruit etc. I have never forgotten that.

The most enjoyable meal I ever had was a chicken salad sandwich and chips that I picked up at a deli in OAK on an OAK-MCI flight on Southwest. Very tasty, light, yet filling and I got to eat it when I was ready, not when the airline deemed it time for me to eat.

Living in Kansas City, I'll opt to forego the steak dinner on an airplane, and instead head over to Hereford House or Jess and Jims for a REAL steak that I can buy for several hundred dollars less than it would cost me on an airline...

Best Economy Meal : Eva Air B744 combi LHR-BKK - A superb fillet of sea bass served on proper crockery, with beautifully cooked rice. It tasted great, and seeing as you lose 30% of your ability to taste whilst flying, this was a great achievement.

Best Biz Meal : British Airways B744 LHR-BKK - Incredible gourmet meal from start to finish - Pan fried steak(perfectly cooked), sushi selection, Thai Gaeng Kiaow Wan Gai (Thai Green Chicken Curry) - luscious!

Best 1st Class meal : Singapore Airlines B744 SIN - LHR. The great thing about SIA is that they allow you to have a choice of Singaporean 'Street' food if you like, but wonderfully cooked. I had a great Singapore Laksa and Curry Mee. But, if you wanted you could have more 'upmarket' haute cuisine also. Fabulous.
I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

Best Main Cabin Meal: Northwest Airlines 757 last year DTW-SFO. Great lasgna and salad and cookie and warm roll.

My best inflight meals have always been on Midwest Express. Recently, while flying LAX-OMA, they served filet mignon, baked potato, radish salad, cooked baby carrots, fresh fruit (pineapple and honeydew), and keylime cheesecake. Of course they also had their infamous warm chocolate chip cookies and free champagne.

What an airline.  Smile

Unlike most of you culinary connoiseurs, my memory of in flight meals are not as graphically detailed, however I shall attempt to do my best under the circumstances:
Best meals (all in economy):

Delta Airlines from DFW to SFO back in 1988 on an L-1011 - we had steak for lunch, really tender and juicy! (can't remember what the side dishes were).

SAS from CPH to BKK in 1990 (767-300) breakfast- we had croissants, the only airline I have flown to date (and I have flown quite a few) that I have seen serve croissants for breakfast; and they were not cold or soggy but hot and crispy fresh from the oven.

Worst meals:

Delta Airlines from SFO to YVR in '88 (727-200)- it was breakfast and I don't remember what appaulling excuse for food we had but the only thing that was somehow edible were the rolls and even those were of highly dubious quality.

That aside, any airline which serves lasagna- even Garfield would opt to pass for the lasagna as an in-flight meal. I would like to take this as an opportunity to warn all you less experienced passengers:
NEVER EVER EVER GO ANYWHERE NEAR LASAGNA IF YOU ARE MORE THAN 10,000 ABOVE SEA LEVEL!!!

On that happy note, have a nice flight and bon appetit!
Regards,

RonE

My best ever was on Sunways MD-83 from Manchester to Istanbul. Had really nice Turkish style lamb and a lush spongy cake soaked in syrup-lovely!!!!
In UK, i suppose the Stornoway run is cool, you get a nice chicken wrap which is nice for such a short trip.

That was AA International Business Class service?? Wow, I can't imagine what First Class would have been like.

AA International service is still pretty good for a US carrier, but I'm afraid the days of service like that are firmly behind us. These days, the airlines emphasize gadget-clad seats and PTV systems over their food service. The airlines all claim to have fancy-pants executive chefs, but those special service touches which made Business/First Class what was are mostly gone.

Let's see...I'd say my nicest meal was Singapore, First class, from New York to Singapore........I had lobster thermador..........fabulous! best coach meal....Northwest from EWR to MSp.CHicken marsala was fabulous! Also maybe MIdwest express...fabulous! as also mentioned, they served filet mignon, baked potato, radish salad, cooked baby carrots, fresh fruit (pineapple and honeydew), and keylime cheesecake. Of course they also had their infamous warm chocolate chip cookies and free champagne.

worst meal:
hmmm......AA from JFK to paris.....the sad thing is, I dont even know what it was! it looked like chicken, tasted like wax, yet the flight attendent called it beef somehting...I dont know!

IC does serve croissants on most breakfast and so-called "high Tea" flights. And it has got damn boring.

IC changes its menu every day of the week to avoid repetition. But still everyday we get croissants, although with different fillings. So one day its "Paneer Criossants" and Mushrooms on the next day! Hygienic and ok to taste, but gets REAL boring.

Roasted Chicken wings/Legs. mmmm... thats superb.

I had some real good Coach chow on Alitalia between Rome and Chicago.

But the best meal I have eaten on an iairplane in a long time was last week on Southwest. I was flying on their 1:45 pm nonstop Austin to Las Vegas.

I stoped in at Dickie's barbecue in Roundrock, TX on the way to Austin-Bergstrom and got two brisket sandwiches...slice onions.....jalapeno peppers.

Got on the plane with my FF program drink coupons had those two barbecue sandwiches at 39,000 feet over West Texas and washed them down with a couple of cold Coors Light beers.

To each his own, I suppose, but it was good food.

The new meal service offered by AN on their domestic services is amazing. Compared with what was previously offerred in economy (and still offered by QF) the new individually plated meals with hot food accompanied by fresh fruit etc is excellent and surpasses what most airlines offer on their international services.

Best international meal I've had was on SQ J Class.
717,721/2,732/3/4/5/7/8/9,742/3/4,752/3,762/3,772,W,310,320/1,332/3,388,DC9,DC10,F28,F100,142,143,E90,CR2,D82/3/4,SF3,AT

Executive First with Air Canada from Toronto to London, great service and foods! Just can't remember the fresh baked-onboard cookies they offer... even my friend back in Y class can smell the cookies at the back! Great cheese dishes... I just loved it!  Smile Even on flts to Asia with AC in Y class they serve rice and fired noodles, hot breads and etc... Unlike other airlines, only beef, chicken, and salmon steaks... For breakfast AC offers congee, and on board cooked fresh steamed rice!

The best meals that I've been served while flying must be on Delta we were flying coach back in the summer of 94 from Orlando-San Juan they served us this very tasty Chicken with some kind of pasta on top . To this date I remember that delicious meal and I get hungry . Also I found that TWA offers these bags that include a sandwich which I found to be very tasty (the best sandwich that I've tried onboard an airline ) and also includes Dorito Chips and a chocolate cookie , I really liked those . This other meal would have been enjoyed by someone who likes fish , but I don't -it consisted of smoked salmon and a delicious fruit salad , also a delicious Chessecake and some hot rolls (you had a wide variety to choose from ) this was onboard TWA First class this summer. I would have really enjoyed it if I liked fish .
The worst meal -The 2nd Pan Am - It was a breakfast flight and they served this cold dish of scrambbled eggs that didnt have any type of taste . I also consider AA's infamous pasta dish to lack taste.

YEG-YVR (Edmonton-Vancouver) Canadian Airlines 737-200, November 1999 - I had a smoked turkey sandwich for lunch and that was in Business Class. It was good, plus a beer and a glass of red wine to wash it down.

SYD-CNS Qantas 747-400 Economy class. My brother and I had a halibut and vegetables for a lunch aboard that flight back in 1993. Even my brother, who doesn't normally like airline food said the fish was surprisingly good! I thought the fish was good, too.

LHR-CDG Air France A300B4 in July 1991 (economy). I had a plain yogurt-like concotion that was tasty. BTW, apparently that stuff's sold even in the UK!

YEG-YYZ (Edmonton-Toronto) Air Canada A320 in June, 1999. I had a breakfast in economy that wasn't bad at all - egg omelette with beef patty. With a little salt and pepper, it was not bad, actually. The coffee was quite good, too.

SAS is very good. Even domestically they serve great food - and the bread is always fresh and nice. On my flight from BOO to OSL this week I had marinated chicken with herb potatoes and guacamole (all pax, even those with the cheapest ticket possible) get the same meal. Soft drinks are free of charge, if you want beer or wine, you have to pay. On my way up to BOO, salmon marinated in a lobster sauce. Yum, yum!
Coffee or tea is free as well.

Best meal-Northwest airlines flight 7 from Memphis to Seattle two years ago, ham, egg, and cheese croissant sandwich with bagel, yogurt, banana, and beverage. I love Northwest's breakfasts.
WORST-Northwest flight 96 from Kansai to Seattle, horrible chicken covered completely by mustard with shrimp salad, and some other stuff. I should've got the other choice which was udon noodles, which looked good.

For Economy Class, definitely Virgin atlantic. Good food, interesting menus, fabulous desserts, and liqueur to top it all off. My second choice would be Emirates. As for the "worst food" category, i wouldn't even know where to start. Probably ALL US carriers on domestic flights?

There seems to be a trend here: best food -- asian/european; worst food--american ?
Why is there such a discrepancy? ? ?

Northwest, in 1998 I enjoyed a nice Chicken Sandwhich with all the trimmings, Cookie, Peanuts, and Ginger Ale. Delicious!!!

United, in 1999, I enjoyed a Breakfast Box with Yougurt and Banana Bread, with Orange Juice and a full selection of drinks. EXCELLENT!

Comair- I enjoyed a selection of Biscoff Cookies/Pretzels/Crackers/ with a full selection of drinks. Excellent for the Regional Markets.

NO other airline beats this in my opinion! These 3 are my preferred carriers so far, and I like them. I will also be taking Continental, and Im sure I'll find their service pleasing.

British Airways in World Business Class and World Traveller.

I've had a handful of good meals on Delta, and the food on my one Alaska Airlines flight was very good.

Otherwise, airline food seems to be an oxymoron.
