So That Explains It…Why ALL Inflight Food Is Crappy

I am always traveling, and I very VERY rarely find decent food on an airplane. Is there a legitimate, respectable reason for why air plane food is just plain bad?!?

Well… it turns out there is… Check out this article posted by FOX.

It explains everything.

Here is the link if you want the full address:

Now…if we could just figure out why airlines still lose EVERYBODY’S luggage….

    I don’t know that I trust Fox News to tell the truth about anything .. like ever.. but I feel like that might be legitimate. I never really thought about that before but it totally makes sense.

      Haha. But this definitely makes sense.

    I dont buy it. Food in airplanes used to be better. I remember getting hot oatmeal, using silverware, eating chicken that tasted like chicken. Even in economy. It is strange that they blame the “unrelenting noise” of flying and suggest a pair of earplugs to make the food taste better. Last time I flew, EVERYONE had in earbuds for their ipods. And most people in economy dont want to spend all that money for a poorly made Bloody Mary. So its not the booze making the food taste bad. But now I am curious. I know that much of the meat that is served in prisons and school lunches is that crap that didnt pass inspections. I wonder where the meat served on airplanes is from? Must investigate!

    I don’t buy it either. The fruit, granola, rice cakes, etc that I pack taste the same with my feet firmly on the ground as they do at 10,000 feet. Sounds like a load of crap to “blame” the passengers for the airline’s shortcomings in the nosh-department.

      Good point…The food I bring on does taste the same whether in the air or in my house…but is that just some sort of psychological perception due to knowing how this stuff is supposed to taste?

        I suppose that’s possible. But either way, I’ll stick with what I know!

    *g* I think the whole thing is a bunch of “hooey.” I haven’t been on a flight with food for awhile, but I sometimes order the “vegetarian” ahead of time – oddly enough, it’s often better.

      I used to think about pre-ordering the vegetarian dish…but on the airlines I fly, it is usually some type of curry, and I really try to avoid Indian curries (especially when no restroom is easy to get to)….but the vegetarian sides are often really good: fresh fruit and vegetables are perfect for me.

    Hi! I’ve been reading your weblog for some time now and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout out from Kingwood Texas! Just wanted to tell you keep up the good job!

      Thanks for reading and I appreciate the support. I always try to update Fed Up with my latest ‘Rant’. Sometimes things get a little crazy because of my extensive travel for work and the possible lack of free Internet…. But I love sharing my highly opinionated thoughts about food as often as I can.

    Spot on with this write-up, I absolutely think this site needs a lot more attention.
    I’ll probably be returning to read more, thanks for the info!
