We can't understand why more of these healthy alternatives have not yet popped up, especially as more and more airlines do away with full meal service. But we're hoping that a change is already underway. Now don't get us wrong, we love our fancy fast food airport joints. But with so many of the same types of food being served in one terminal--burgers, fries, donuts, sandwiches, coffee--a health food spot, serving salads, calorie-conscious meals, low-sodium treats and vegetarian selections could certainly do well.
We bet the airports would easily be able to find retailers to open these health food shops. Even local restaurants in LA are fighting for better food at LAX, so who's to say that a Whole Foods pop-up shop in an airport won't be well-received? Don't worry, passengers will still have a McDonalds and a Dunkin to choose from as well but one healthier spot would be nice.
From now on, we're going to be updating our Healthy Airport Food sightings as we go on our travels but we really want to hear from you about where you were able to pick up a decent treat before your latest flight. Add your sightings in comments below or send us an email! (Please include the airport name, the terminal and the name of the shop that served the good grub.)
