Airplanes aren’t really known for their food, but who says that you can’t indulge in something to accompany your mid-flight drink? As passengers tastes and airline regulations change, so do the menus and standards on board. Airline economy meals have been upping their game lately and aren’t what they used to be. Some are going well beyond that mystery meat and overcooked pasta paygrad.
I’m sure everyone has heard some sort of joke about airline food, but with cocktails and food getting better and better, these jokes are hard to make.
