    THe snacks on Jetblue are the best...I know everyone talks about the Terra Blue chips, but their oatmeal Chocolate chip cookies are great. Those arent easy to find elsewhere either.

    I am not that picky about food. There have been times I have looked forward to airline food mainly because it was a) food, and b) there was the surprise factor,

    I once had a dish of chicken in tomato sauce in economy on AA. It was actually quite good, there just wasnt enough of it.

    Im Kosher Style, so I order the Kosher meal whenever possible. Those meals are quite good.

    I also know someone who orders the Hindu Vegetarian meal. Its supposedly very good Curry.

    If you ever get the chance to fly PIA I would recommend flying ecomomy plus or better....fly economy at your peril!!! Still don't expect too many smiles from the cabin crew. I tried to get a smile...all I got was a sarcastic smirk.

    Yeah i'd love to fly PIA! I love my curry's etc Beats all that sqaushed up crap you get on charters

    Don't normally eat plane food, although Thomson gave us cornflakes etc when going to Arrecife. Was better than the normal stuff you get

    Speaking of food strictly, my buds appreciate PIA a lot. However, if I have to talk about the best has to be Gulf. Gulf I've travelled in first, business and economy all three and even while in economy the food has been great! First class, don't even wana remind myself of the scrumptious buffet or I'll start feeling hungry. Also, the Indian local Sahara airlines was the best breakfast I ever had.

    Virgin is pretty good too. What I can't stand regarding airline food is from the far east :S. Cathay and Thai were a tragedy for me (not that they're bad of course would be great for other people).

    I used to dig the left over meals that came off of United's flights....Yeah back when a 737-200 or a 727 was around!! Of corse I'm just a fueler, but the cats would sneak me a lunch when I needed one, inbetween fueling my 26 Beech 1900 flights...(no wonder I'm crazy)

    Honestly, the jalapeno roast beef wraps I had on song were AMAZING for B.O.B. and as far as domestic, eh, Deltas was ok in First, Continental had a good meal for breakfast to and from SXM in First as well.

    I flew Song last year on July 3rd from BOS-LAS. I had 6hrs of TV and ended up having 2 of those Ham and Cheese sandwiches. They were absolutely awesome...but really expensive.

    yes, I had some really good food on United Airlines when I was flying first class to Vienna Austria from Portland, OR. on my first flight (PDX-ORD A320) eggs flourantine w/ salsa and fruit, seccond flight (ORD-IAD 763) I got a deli platter with 3 types of deli meat and a warm bagette!, third flight (ORD-Coppenhagen 763) I got some very good beef meal and ice cream, and on my fourth flight (CPH-VIE SAS MD 87) we got a small breakfast. I thought all the food was great! Alaska Airlines also has good food along with Horizon Air!

    I've been a Southwest guy my whole life. This past summer was my 1st flight on another airline. I flew SAT-EWR and was served a burger like the ones we got in High School. It was better than the one in HS. Then EWR-FCO and I had the chicken with vegetables and a biscuit I think which was gross.. My girlfriend kept ranting "Airplane food is so good so good..." It wasn't all that good. FCO-EWR was lasagna I don't know why I got that I had been eating pasta the past month. Of course I thought it wasn't good because I had been eating the good stuff. EWR-SAT I had cheerios and a banana. The best thing served on these flights was the Mr. and Mrs. T bloody mary mix

    Olympic has good food. No snack boxes, just hot meals on long haul. Meals served on flights over an hour.
    JFK-ATH, ATH-JFK 2 meals served. This is all in economy class.
    KLM food is pretty good too.

    The meals I had on routes like MIA-PTY in '99, MIA-AUA in '00 with AA were pretty good. Also DL ATL-PTY in '01 was pretty good. And AC YUL/YYZ-YVR and back were good too in '01 and '02. Then in '04 my AC flight ORD-YVR was supposed to have breakfast, but the meals didn't get loaded on or something so they gave this big-ass muffin, which was pretty disgusting and gave me gas. And since then, meal service has been pretty much nuts, snack mix, biscoff cookies (those are really good), or nothing on the flights I have been on. Delta is also good to give whole bags of chips or whatever they have and bottles of water. Also this past July on BDL-IAD with United Express, I got orange juice that was foaming on top. I was like WTF, this is the first time I have seen foaming orange juice, and didn't drink it. And I remember back in '03 United gave these nasty egg rolls for breakfast... I refused to eat those as I didn't want to get the shits while traveling, those things were nasty.

    Why'd they ever get rid of them?
    I have to say though, on WN's 3 hour long flights I've taken out of MDW/LAX the service was pretty good, considering it's a low fare airline. The snack boxes had some wierd low fat Oreo things (REAL Oreo's would have been better, but they weren't bad) rits crackers, and peanuts. Not bad considering it was free.

    I have great memories of airlines meals. I special ordered a hamburger on AA BOS-LAX back in '01. It said it was McD's burger but it looked and tasted way better than anything I've ever had there. Last real meal I ever had on an airline was UA BOS-DEN in 2003. It was some egg, cheese, and ham thing baked inside some kind of flaky crust. My mouth waters just from thinking about it.....

    Since then all I've had was peanuts and such. Speaking of, remember WN's honey roasted peanuts? Those were some of the best tasting peanuts I ever had. The dry roasted ones they have now are ok, but really I wish they'd bring honey roasted back.
