Why don’t airlines serve good food?Add Answer
In those days providing food could be a bit hit and miss. Aircrafts needed better power over the item they were putting forth. A couple of carriers considered this to be a chance and begun either purchasing or setting up flight kitches around the globe so they could supply their very own flights as well as different aircrafts too. Lufthansa and Swiss spring to mind.
It’s not like that airlines don’t serve good food. You may have a bad experience but I am a regular flyer and I found most of airlines food average. The food quality mostly depends on the airline. I think the food quality on US carriers is not up to the mark and on the scale 1 to 10, I would like to rate them 5. Moreover, they only serve food on long haul routes.
But most European and Middle East carriers like Air France, Emirates, Qatar Airways etc. serve delicious food. I just traveled in Saudi Airlines business class and I had the best ever meal on an airplane.
I do agree that airlines services have changed over a couple of years but in my opinion it all depends on the cost of your ticket. You are paying them for your travel expense not for a premium meal. So, you can’t expect to receive a premium meal. Next time, when you travel then choose a business class ticket, although the ticket price is expensive but for sure your notion of airlines serve bad food will change.
