I am very excited. In the morning I am leaving for Greece. I have a list of countries I would like to visit, and Greece has been at the top for many years. On this trip I will fly with two airlines that I have not previously flown, and accordingly when making arrangements I had to make sure the tickets noted the requirement for a gluten-free meal. It occurred to me that while I spend a great deal of time traveling and focusing on naturally gluten-free dishes, that no matter where I go, I first have to get there. That is usually by plane, and in many cases the airline will provide a meal. Some airlines are very good while others fall short of the mark. For short fights it’s really not a big concern, but on flights over four hours it’s something that needs to be considered.
Over the past few years I have flown and eaten while flying with many airlines, including Aeroflot, Air Berlin, Air Canada, Austrian Airlines, British Airways, Delta Airlines, Lufthansa, SAS, Turkish Airlines and United Airlines just to name a few.
I have experienced good food, bad food, not food and even the occasional exceptional meal. Additionally the quality of the meals can be very very different between economy and business class.
There is not a lot of information on airline food, and so it has occurred to me that for people who don’t travel often, it might be helpful to have access to some opinions. Starting with this trip, I will be posting my airline food experiences. I will also make a rating chart based on previous experiences and then updated as we go.
If you have airline experiences, please feel free to drop me a note and I will have the information to the site.
Tell us what do you think.
