I kind of like airplane food, even the so called overcooked ones. Maybe the food themselves are not great, but usually they are served when I am pretty hungry. When a person is pretty hungry, most things taste pretty good.
Overall, I do dislike the airplane flying experience: long security check line, waiting for delayed flight for hours (sometime), people all cramped together on the plane (and I am speaking as a skinny guy too), having to sleep sitting upright, someone lost my luggage… In light of all that, the airline food is probably the most acceptable part for me.
I assume that will be the same for tree nuts too (airborne nuts dust).
I wonder if this true for other things too. So if I am allergic seafood, does it means someone eating seafood next to me could somehow affects me too. My guess is no, since seafood does not fly around.
That level of sensitivity exists with almost any allergy - I had a friend who ate french fries that had been cooked in the same oil as a deviled crab – her entire face swelled up because of the cross-contamination.
A former colleague’s wife is so sensitive to yeast and gluten that she had an allergic reaction when her husband kissed her after having a beer at an after-work happy hour.
Worst food experience was on AA in first class where they served tuna quiche. I wasn’t feeling well to begin with and that s really did not help matters. Best was BizFirst on Continental to Hawaii with lobster and that marvelous ice cream cart for dessert. Now I’m usually stuck in coach on the shit can that is United so I bring Triscuits, laughing cow “cheese”, plastic knife and vodka.
I have a non-Muslim friend who orders the halal meal. Usually tasty and either Middle Eastern or South Asia influenced. But then he orders a beer or wine… I’ve been thinking of ordering the vegetarian one, but is it an actual meal, or just a fruit plate? (I love fruit, but not pre-cut and out of season green fruit).
You can take them on carrier on but you are not allowed to drink them
I have on many occasions but know they can restrict me. Only happened once when coming back from Kentucky after doing barrel picks and had a Willett in my glass. The attendant gave me a warning but let me finish my pour. It was Southwest and they are pretty friendly as a rule
