Let's say an airline scheduled to fly tomorrow with B737-800 with 2 class configuration let's say 12J / 150Y
Do airlines provide all 162 foods into the plane even thou the load factor on that flight for tomorrow will be only 50% ?
or what about if J class is only 1 pax and Y class is full pax....do airlines also stock the plane with 12 food for J class?
and how an airline can maintain the same taste and food quality according to the airline's standard food of preparation if the plane is not taking off from their home base?
i have always wondered about this.

Upon booking a flight with Norwegian you get a list of meals and you can pick the one you like. There is also an option for "no meal" since meals on board with Norwegian aren't free. They charge € 35 for a meal on board. Of course the "no meal" option is free.
This way they know exactly which passenger has which meal and they load exactly those meals and that quantity of them on board. The cabin crew has got a list with seat numbers and meals and they hand you exactly the meal you picked while you booked. If you selected "no meal" while booking and once on board you decide you do want a meal you're out of luck, they don't have one for you.
