A FOOD and travel expert has revealed the best food for a flight by airline.
Meals on board flights are rarely a culinary extravaganza, but there are ways to make the food a little tastier.
Melissa Leong, cookbook editor and frequent traveler, told Escape that passengers should research inflight menus before traveling – this way vacationers know what to expect from a meal.
The Australian TV presenter understood that many passengers are more inclined to opt for a more ‘Eurocentric’ meal, but she encouraged them to try the airlines’ homegrown cuisine – and even recommended some of her favorites from her years of travel.
She said: “The Thai Airways curries, for example, are really quite good.
“Japan Airlines bento boxes are super cute and fantastic for people who like to eat lots of small snacks/okazu.”
Melissa encouraged passengers to eat these options as they are often better than the alternatives.
Although many long-haul flights offer free meals, many vacationers bring their own food on board.
She said, “I’m here to tell you that nobody cares if you bring your own food.”
The frequent traveler recommended taking food out of carry-on luggage and placing it on a separate tray at airport security to make the process easier.
If you’d like to bring your own food on board, Melissa had several suggestions, including yogurts and frozen smoothies that are under 100mL.
Melissa also recommended packing a mix of sweet and savory snacks.
She said: “Our taste buds give us a lot of airborne fuss and it’s always a good idea to pack both options to keep you full.
Dark chocolate, dates, almonds, veggie snacks, and a sarnie are good options, but be sure to skip onions and garlic.
If you really want to take your taste buds with you on the flight, try sticking a lemon or lime slice in your reusable water bottle.
Meanwhile, an airline food expert recommended avoiding pasta on the plane.
A woman revealed how she always avoids eating bad food on a plane.
And one tourist explained how she can get better meals in the air with a free airport item.
