Breakfast in the air

Before my very first trip on an airline, I was repeatedly warned of how disgusting airplane food was. However, on that inaugural flight, the little hot tray of food that appeared on my fold-up table was something that smelled and tasted absolutely delicious!

Now, many flights and airlines later, I begin to understand why some people complain about the food! And the food quality on some good airlines have dropped drastically. However, a recent long and tiring flight reminded me again how welcoming that little tray can be.

We were served poached eggs for breakfast. What a surprise! I had never had poached eggs on a flight before! It came with a nice sauce (I think it was supposed to be hollandaise), spinach, tomatoes and a really tasty little hash brown.

Of course, the downside was that we were served exactly the same thing on our return flight out and it didn't seem that nice anymore! I now sometimes order special meals on flights. It's a bit of a mystery as to what you're going to get but the extra dish of fruit instead of cake is always a welcome!

you were lucky, that's definately the exception rather than the rule.

Tuk - Giraffe ham, I wish! Watch this space, some exotic stuff coming up, though not giraffe!

KY - Hi, thanks for dropping by. Yeah, I did count my lucky stars it was edible. However the meal they served before was really bad so it's a 50% chance!

Lucky. I sometimes get alright looking food, but you're stomach always hurts coz you're up in the air. So I spend the whole flight clutching my stomach. Fun.

Hi Kate, thanks for dropping by! Yeah flying does funny things to do stomachache!

Foodcrazee - Well, poached eggs was how they introduced it! It wasn't fabulous but any form of hot food when you're tired, dirty and hungry is pretty okay!
