Special Meals -vs- Regular Meals

Sat Feb 14, 2004 9:23 am

I have seen Special meals that Pax's order actually look better that the actual meal the airline is serving, I wonder if people actually now and that's what they do to confirm that they would probably get a better meal than the one they are serving to the rest of pax's.

With my experience, special meals (vegan) are better than regular meals.

I think that most people do not really think about ordering a special meal just so to get a better meal. I think that people are "afraid" to order a special meal as they might get "a plate of vegetables," and would rather risk a meal then something that might be a bit better.

Vegan meals rock... Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Last year, I when I took the family to MCO, I ordered a kids meal for my 2 year old. Too bad she was asleep during the meal service. But, man, it tasted a lot better than my "adult" meal.  Big thumbs up

Those special meals can be tricky.. I ordered a sea food special meal on BA last Summer from LHR to EWR and my fish meal was crap compared to the regular meal on that particular trip!
So depending on what you special order and WHY is the key.
If you are religious or a strict vegan then by all means, but to just possibly get a better meal, I wouldn't try it again.
