Airline Food-The good, the bad and the ugly

I rarely fly. When I did the odd 5 day jaunt to Singapore on Cathay Pacific I admired the thoughtful food pesentation but what cracked me up completely was after the lights were dimmed you coud go and heat a Cup O' Noodles. I think many passengers found that the most comforting. 

 

When you're stuck in steerage, I've found the usual trans Pac mid-flight noodle service to be a breath of civility for those who can't sleep and the ready availability to make your own isn't bad either!

I've found the food on all of the pan Pacific (or the other direction) flights I've taken to be pretty good in coach.  Granted, I've only taken 4 airlines - mostly EVA, whose food is never spectacular, but always at least tasty and for sure edible.  In addition to the dinner and breakfast, they come around with a snack in between - coming out of JFK, the snack is typically a fried chicken sandwich with spicy mustard, which has been heated... it's actually very tasty - I usually have more than 1.  They also have an area filled with other snacks and drinks to help yourself if you want to get up and stretch your legs, but the flight attendants come around with trays of water and juice pretty regularly.

 

Of all the flights I've taken, Singapore Airlines had the best food (this was about 12 years ago) - even in coach, and even when compared to a lucky upgrade at no extra charge to biz class on Air France from Paris to NY.  They had a lot of choices, and all of them seemed well prepared.  They also handed out Haagen Dazs ice cream after "dinner", which was stored in styrofoam boxes with dry ice.  Midway through the flight, they gave the extras away as part of the snack area in the back of the plane.
