Most Unusual Inflight Meals

Tue Oct 18, 2005 7:45 pm

Adapted from a comment i made earlier today, but I think it deserves its own thread!  Wink

So anyway, what's the most unusual inflight meal you've had?

Well... I don't actually know what it was... one of those things described as simply "meat". Kind of a sandwich with what looked like chicken but most definitely wasn't. Served IGU-GIG earlier this year.

It wasn't unusual for me but we got sweet potatoes and collard greens on a SAN-ATL flight in First last month. I'm sure some folks were perplexed by the mess of greens on their plate though.

Hi there,

Aeroflot used to serve caviar in long haul Economy (say 20 years go). I was a kid and didn't like its taste, so my parents were happy to eat it instead.

Not necessarily unusual, but I did have a delicious chicken stir fry on an OK flight PRG-LHR several years ago. It's not something I've ever had on a flight before (or since), but then I've never flown any far eastern carriers, where I'm assuming something like that would be fairly usual. It just wasn't something I was expecting Czech Airlines to serve up!

This was like 14 years ago, flying from Buenos Aires to Mar del Plata with Austral MD-83,a 40 minutes flight.
They served sodas and ice cream!!
I was expecting nothing for a short flight like this,and I was impressed.  biggrin   bigthumbsup   biggrin

No, bringing your own food on board only happens in the US, my friend.

Great:

9W DEL-BOM: Ice Cream was served as compliment

Worst:

LH DEL-FRA: A croissant along with ketchup in a paper box as DINNER! This airline is so bad that I miss adequate words to describe their performance adequately

For me the most unusual, and incidentally quite delicious, was congee served as a dinner entree on CX between JFK and YVR. For those unfamiliar with congee, it's almost like a porridge, but made with rice instead of oats. Like a thick soup almost. There are many varieties of congee, but CX flavoured theirs with chicken. Since that flight leaves JFK about 2230h, the congee warmed me up and put me to sleep for the flight to YVR.

This reminds me of UA, and a FA, in a horrible voice, asking: Chicken or Paste? Big grin - The food was horrible, full of chemicals, preservatives etc..

On a SK flight from LIN to ARL they gave us some kind of oriental dish (and I like almost any kind of oriental cuisine) that I couldn't understand its ingredients.
It was like a kind of soya noodles but with something unknown served at 3°C!!! Disgustable: Definitely the worst inflight meal I've ever had; and I was not supposed to find an oriental-inspired something on a swedish aircraft!

Another bad experience on SR MXP-ZHR: ice cream completely melted.

On Lauda Air VIE-SYD I've had anything unusual, but what they gave was so small that I had to buy food for the return flight.
