    How was the food on your flight?

    Some of us fly first class.
    Some of us fly "steerage"

    Imagining back to 1960 (when i was in 1st grade)
    Here are some images of airline food way back when....

    What was served on your flight?

    Did you bring a snack onboard?

    No real food that I saw, just chips of some sort. I am sure there was some food you could order but I did not even look. I pride myself on sleeping on flights whenever possible, lol.

    On the way down I eat a full breakfast at the airport, on the way home I typically bring pizza on board just incase I get hungry but typically eat lunch prior to boarding as well.

    First Class on Delta -

    We get breakfast on the MSP - ATL flight which is usually your choice of either cereal or a cheese omelet (both come with yogurt, fresh fruit, and a bagel.) They serve lunch from ATL - AUA which is usually a choice of a meat or vegetarian option. My favorite that I recall was an Asian beef salad. Lunch always comes with a small side salad, a roll, and dessert.

    On the way back se get lunch from AUA-ATL and our choice of snacks from ATL - MSP which is a later flight.

    If we're not flying first class I always pack snacks which are usually protein snack bars and dried fruit. On our Atlanta layover we would grab a really good turkey deli sandwich in the airport kiosks to go and eat it on the plane. On the way back we always make sure to have a good last lunch in Aruba - usually a place like West Deck, Tulip, or Cilo.

    The food on American in first class is usually pretty good. On the early leg from IAD to MIA we had a full breakfast and MIA to AUA a full lunch. The lunch that stands out to me was grilled chicken over a fresh salad. On the flight down, it's enough that our first night we only need cocktails and appetizers. Stay with me here, it's how I talk myself in to paying extra for first class..lol.
    When we fly Southwest we usually go to subway in the airport and each get a sandwich for the ride down.
    I don't really know what happens in the way back. It seems like we eat at the airport more coming home.

    Nothing more than snacks on JetBlue. We normally grab a bite at the airport before boarding.

    Suriname Airways always serves a toasted pastry, that is either stuffed with melted cheese or tuna, in two to three bites its gone. I try to pick up a Cruncher from the KFC in Piarco Airport before my flight, but even at that hour of the morning (5am) there is a long line. And don't talk about buying stuff to eat in the departure area, the price is double. Where you would pay $6.00TT for a soda on the outside, in the departure area the vendors sell them for $12.00TT. I'll normally hold on till I get to Curacao and buy something to eat in the departure area of the airport. Discovered the fun fact that if you use some Papiamento while placing your order, you get an extra helping of fries with your order. I also pick up some extra snacks to carry with me to snack on depending on the time that I get to the hotel.

    we have packed and brought sandwiches onboard.

    we have not flown 1st since since 2009 and then it was american airlines and air tran and the food was passable in 1st.
    since 2009 we have flown primarily air tran or swa to aruba and swa and jet blue from fla to new england and out west.

    ** disclosure ...when bringing snacks aruba to the usa....make sure there are no meats/cheeses or fresh fruit (us customs disallows)

    I am actually usually impressed with Delta's food in first class on domestic and Caribbean flights. It's always fresh and has good flavor. Granted it's not like their Business Class to Europe but that's a whole 'nother ballgame with menus and dessert carts (these are the flights that we pay for with our frequent flyer miles - worth every mile/penny to arrive in Europe feeling refreshed.)

    I think Delta still offers sandwiches to purchase in coach on domestic and Caribbean flights. Have purchased them in the past and they were usually pretty decent.
