What Are You Ordering During In-Flight Meal Service?
This sure has been a banner summer for airplane food, what with Times UK naming their favorites and Virgin America winning tops in the Travel + Leisure reader's poll. In addition, summer means menu changes, and Lufthansa sure stepped up with their Ritz-Carlton partnership.
Although legacy carriers are still offering free meals on long-haul flights (check our meal on Delta pictured above), or in first class on selected flights, LCCs like Virgin America are emerging as the leaders of in-flight cuisine with their available-for-purchase options. With less pressure on pleasing everyone and therefore more room to be creative, not to mention the fact that passengers pay for these things, it's not surprising that the for-sale meals on Virgin America are satisfying tastebuds.
So we want to know what you're ordering onboard. If you're flying the standard airlines like American, United, Delta, Continental and so on, do you go for the beef, the pasta or the chicken? Or, heaven forbid, the shrimp? Do you worry, as we do, about consuming seafood in-flight, as it can't exactly be the freshest.
If you fly on Virgin, are you indulging in the absinthe cocktail or tapping the RED system for the epic Muffaletta sandwich? Or, for you Jetblue jetters, would you rather the Terra Blue chips or the animal crackers?
