The best and worst airline food: a very frequent flyer's verdict
South China Morning Post
Mar 02, 2019
I'm sitting in economy class on an Air France flight from Paris to Singapore and eating a meal that doesn't look like it belongs here. Even the woman sitting next to me can't believe her eyes when she looks at what the cabin crew have delivered.
It's a meal that has been created by the famed Maison Lenôtre for Air France passengers in premium economy and economy class. A meal concept that allows passengers to "pimp" our meals and have our own premium gastronomic meal experience - even as you're packed in at the back of the plane.
The highlights of the meal were salmon panna cotta, Viennese chicken with piquillo chilli peppers, and a Maison Lenôtre pastry, chocolate hazelnut layered slice. Since 2012 I've been travelling around the globe to review airline food. Yes, I'm the guy sitting by the window trying to get the right shot to post it to my @inflightfeed Instagram page.

the Kosher meal I got on Cathay Pacific to the states last Oct. was excellent.
what a jobSince 2012 I've been travelling around the globe to review airline food.
China Eastern is dominating the market for flights, and their food is not fantastic, but edible, and fair enough for the price.
Cathay Pacific was the worst flight experience IMHO, although I cannot remember the food, I guess it was ok. Air Canada was also Shit.
Japan Air was also good, food and flight all around good experience.

I go to a restaurant to eat, not to travel.
I don't mix the two up.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
Lol. Very expensive restaurant.
In the less expensive section, ie. economy class, I'd vote for Air NZ - the food was good, can't remember what it was, but something a bit different. And we had a choice between a NZ merlot and a pinot noir - both were good, but I had a second bottle of the pinot noir so it was probably better.
Air France also served some very tasty food, and real (French) champagne for the plebs.
I dont fly for the food, but a good meal makes the time pass when you're on a longhaul. You can waste about two hours with pre-dinner drinks, food and wine, then some coffee and Armagnac.

Food and service was the best. It was like being on a flying Parisian bistro. Took off, got fed great food by beautiful Fench girl, then landed. The nicest flight I have ever taken.
I am not in the least bit surpised that Air France food is still exceptional...
