The 5 best airline meals, according to a man who travels the world reviewing them
Everyone knows just how bad airline food can be. You hear the stories all the time, you’ve probably even experienced it yourself. However, some airlines are now taking pride in their in-flight feasts (rightly so) and, as Business Insider report, this guy has been off reviewing them on his Instagram page!
Austrian Airlines — ‘Hands down the best breakfast I’ve eaten on a plane.
First time on Austrian today from Vienna to Zurich. Check out my breakfast in economy class! 😍 A delicious Do & Co pre order breakfast for €15.00. Eggs, bacon, potatoes, mushrooms and tomato served with bircher muesli, fresh fruit, piping hot bread and freshly squeezed orange juice. AMAZING! #inflightfeed #austrianairlines #do&co #planefood #airplanefood #economyclass
“Hands down the best breakfast I’ve eaten on a plane in a seriously long time.” Says Loukas, though the meal was bought at an extra cost, “you can upgrade your in-flight meal for €15 (£13/$16) and receive quite a fantastic meal.”
The meal won a 9.4 rating on InflightFeed.
Singapore Airlines — ‘The in-flight meal options… even in economy class were fantastic.’
Loukas was travelling in Singapore Airline’s famous Suite Class when he was served this up. “I love Singapore Airlines, the service was amazing and the in-flight meal options in business, first, and even in economy class were fantastic.”
He notes on InflightFeed that suites and first class passengers are greeted with Dom Perignon Vintage 2004 as a welcome drink.
Scandinavian Airlines — ‘Like dining in a cool, Scandinavian restaurant.’
Entree and dessert live from SAS 983 from Copenhagen to Tokyo! Beautiful looking and delicious. Entree: Chicken with cauliflower puree , sour apples, apple blossom and juniper oil. Dessert: Raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake, chocolate icecream and a cheese board! #inflightmeal #inflightfeed #flysas #planefood #businessclass
“Business class is like dining in a cool, Scandinavian restaurant, meal trays aren’t used for the main meal service, and the second meal service is quite nice as you can pick and choose what you want from the buffet trolley that comes through the cabin.”
In economy, though, Loukas noted on his site that some travellers might find the buy-on-board range relatively poor value.
Air Europa — ‘Like eating from a farmers market, so fresh.’
Madrid to Frankfurt with Air Europa in business class today. Wow! The presentation, how fresh and creative does it look!? Smoked salmon puree and olives. Salad with cherry tomatoes, mozzarella and black olives with a pesto and basil vinaigrette. Pepper, aubergine, cod salad. Yoghurt mousse with crunchy crumble, kiwi fruit and nuts. Fantastic for a 2 hour flight! Well done Air Europa! 😀 #inflightfeed #planefood #aireuropa #airplanefood
“Probably the most amazing business class meal I’ve received in Europe. Just look at it, so amazing. Like eating from a farmers market, so fresh, and unique.”
The meal received an overall rating of 9.2 on InflightFeed.
Turkish Airlines — ‘ Their meals are… some of the best in the world.’
“Turkish Airlines is amazing, their meals are very fresh, tasty and some of the best in the world in my opinion, including economy class,” Loukas says.
