Airline Food

by john on September 17, 2003

It’s well known by frequent travelers that for the last couple of years the airlines have cut back significantly on the quantity and quality of food served aboard their flights. Most routes that used to provide a sandwich now offer up a bag of pretzels or nuts if you are lucky. You may get a metal fork in first class, but you’ll be cutting your Chicken Piccata with a plastic knife.

But things are starting to come back a little bit – on my return flight from Boston tonight we were offered a “boxed lunch” type meal from D’Amico & Sons, a respected caterer in the Twin Cities. For $10 I got a very nice chicken breast sandwich, Caesar salad, plum and cookie – all of which was really good but for the soggy croutons. I like this model, I would much rather choose to pay for a good meal than have hoisted upon me the traditional airline fare.

Speaking of food and Boston – we ate at Ristorante Marino in Cambridge on Monday night and liked it so much we went back again on Tuesday. Wonderful Italian, highly recommended.
