Airline Food Survey

Thursday, November 22nd, 2007

Diet Detective has released another Airline Food Survey. United wins, though they are evaluating some pretty meagre offerings in the survey including those little $5 “snack boxes” that are now so common on many flights.

As much as I occaisonally enjoyed the occaisionally good online hot meal, I’m glad the airlines have chosen to stop that in favor of simpler, cheaper snacks. I think full meal service basically added over $10 per person to a coach ticket, and given the relatively modest quality of the meal I think my money is better spent on the ground. Of course some of the international flights have much better food, and we may see this become a marketing perk for all airlines in the future. In the meantime, happy snacking!
