In-flight food

An Australian called Nikos Loukas, and based in Germany, recently undertook a flying journey across Europe sampling 22 airlines and their in-flight meal options.

During the trip Nikos flew 2-4 different carriers each day.  He took photos, timed cabin crew service levels, reviewed the in-flight meal purchases and compiled a video of the whole experience.

"Each airline offered different levels of in-flight meal options for passengers.  Some were excellent, others mediocre", says Nikos.  "Possibly the best options were the pre-order options, where passengers pre-order a deluxe meal, which is usually of a Business Class standard.”

Nikos is now asking the general public to get involved.  Passengers travelling on airlines who offer buy-on-board meals can now review their in-flight meal experience and share photos and their review with future travellers of the airline.  It's a great way to see whether or not what is displayed on the menu is actually served to passengers.

Passengers can review their in-flight meal options on the inflightfeed website, which displays premium meal upgrades for Economy Class passengers, and traditional buy-on-board options which many airlines are now implementing around the world. www.thedailymeal.com www.inflightfeed.com www.youtube.com
