I don’t understand why people complain about meals on a plane. People are the reason why meals have been eliminated from flights (and economics). As a kid, I remember when meals were served in domestic economy. Anyway, I like airplane food. In fact, I love airplane food. It’s like a major event when flying international in economy. What better distraction is there on a 10-hour flight?
Domestically, I try to fly First Class whenever possible and especially on longer flights that have meal service. There is nothing like the aromas wafting from the galley as the oven heats up the catered food during takeoff. On my recent American Airlines flight from EWR-PHX, I was excited to finally try the hamburger that I only read about on travel blogs that I follow. If you can’t tell from the photo:
The bun was toasty. I have been to local restaurants and fast food joints that don’t even have this quality.
The LTO (lettuce, tomatoes, and onions) and pickles must be topped on the cheeseburger. Keep in mind that the onions are not raw but rather picked (marinated) so as not to offend your seatmate.
It comes with Sir Kensington’s Condiments. I have seen these expensive jars at Whole Foods, which I have never bought and tried, so it was an eye-opener how my taste buds were excited by the chipotle mayo packet.
The broccoli salad accompaniment with crunchy nuts and sweet cranberries was a cool compliment to the burger.
And of course, who can’t resist salty chips?!
