    Your Own Airline Food

    I've read on this board and elsewhere about people packing their own food for the plane. It's a good idea, will save you money, and provide your own tastes and nutrition. I started simple with my first video showing a little meal that works for me. See it at:

    More on the way with Italian, Asian, and other flavors.

    Enjoy the journey.

    Legally, you can not serve yourself alcohol on flights. Flight attendants are required to report any issues to the FAA within 24 hours, as well. Saving a couple bucks is not with the potential $1,000 fine.

    I have not been busted/fined yet. I pour my beverages discreetly and discard the empties carefully.

    Bottom line: Pack your delights for an enjoyable flight.

    i would guess that the flight attendants, most of the time, are too busy and overworked to bother with the monitoring of nips. they cannot be everywhere and overseeing everything.
    san nic hit the keyword........discreetly

    i am wondering just how many participate in this "crime" ?

    Years ago..like the late 80's early 90's we used to bring splits of champagne with us to toast our vacations but obviously that was prior to the liquid ban!

    OK I admit it we participate in this crime!! Start the vacation off the right way, we have been doing it for years with no problems at all. We take 3 each of the tiny bottles of vodka or whatever put into a baggie and check it through security. One time the security officer said "hey I want to vaca with you guy's you know how to travel". On board we order club soda or bloody mary mix and that starts the vaca. It's become a tradition after many years now.

    Guilty this past Friday night on the booze. I did ask what type of vodka they had (I can only drink Smirnoff, gluten allergy), just ordered bloody mary mix (5:30pm flight). Only made one drink.
    About 7 years ago I did bring 4 splits of champagne on board, made breakfast mimosa for DH and I for his 50th birthday. They didn't serve champagne in coach, stewardess can't have been nicer with the extra orange juice.

    Cathey,

    Good point to bring up food allergies. I hadn't thought of that because (fortunately) I can eat most anything I like. By packing your own chow, you can avoid the hazards of allergies and other dietary issues.

    I put up the second homemade airline meal today. This one with a few Hawaiian style treats.

    More on the way with creative tastes thanks to some tips I found online. Lots of smart, clever people out there with solutions.

    Bon dia and be well,

    Just put up the homemade airline meal no. 3, which has some Italian-style flavor to it.

    Mrs. 44 went and scarfed it down on me!

    Safe travels,
