Our recent morning flight from Sydney to Brisbane offered a zucchini fritter and chicken sausage with baked beans in a zesty tomato sauce. The fritter was light yet moist and flavorsome but wasn't too heavy for the 90-minute flight; closing our eyes and letting our imagination take over, it could almost have been from a cafe in Bondi. Almost.
The purple tray also offered a warm croissant and a substantial fruit salad not simply poured from a can. A bowl of pineapple, honeydew and watermelon was bright and fruity and hit the spot alongside the bold flavors of the main dish.
There's more to a hot breakfast than oddly tasting eggs and fatty sausage, and Virgin's Aussie outfit has nailed the fresh options that people might actually enjoy with this meal tray.
