Discuss: What’s Your Fave (or Most Hated) Airline Food?

A yogurt parfait with granola and fruit on Virgin America. Frontier’s Deep in the Red candy mix of strawberry licorice, Swedish fish, and cherry ju-ju coins. In the last year, these two snacks stand out as my most delicious moments in the air.

On most flights, moments of comfort are few and far between. As someone who doesn’t sleep much on planes, my airborne consolations come in two forms: food and entertainment. I suspect I am not alone.

So I’m curious, and asking you for your airline food faves. They can be free or for sale; sweet or savory; snacks or meals. They can even be business- or first-class luxuries, if you’ve been lucky enough to partake.

And sure, if you’re hard-pressed to remember eating good in-flight food, but have plenty to nominate as the worst snack/meal in the skies, feel free to share those too. I still vividly recall the American Airlines sandwich so bad—soggy bread, sour cream cheese, stringy meat—that I almost cried while eating it. And tears would have done that soggy bread no favors.
