Eating well on a plane? It’s possible, but it will cost you.
While plane food is notoriously bad (though some dishes are better than others), spending a few extra thousand dollars can make all the difference.
We looked at the in-flight meals served on Business and on Economy Class on eight different airlines to see just how different dishes are.
Worth it or not? You decide.
UNITED AIRLINES: Economy Class
As the man who posted this picture put it, “meh.”
UNITED AIRLINES: Business Class
Not sure what’s up with all that cutlery, but that salmon sure looks good.
SINGAPORE AIR: Economy Class
Is this photo blurry? Or is this meal just unidentifiable glop?
SINGAPORE AIR: Business Class
Steak in a black pepper cream sauce? Don’t mind if we do …
DELTA AIRLINES: Economy Class
These cannelloni actually look delicious.
DELTA AIRLINES: Business Class
Prawns and prosciutto!?
AMERICAN AIRLINES: Economy Class
Generally we like anything drowning in cheese, but this might be overkill.
AMERICAN AIRLINES: Business Class
This delightful looking sesame crusted tuna is, as the photographer points out, just the starter.
JETBLUE: Economy Class
You’re outta luck when it comes to meals on JetBlue, though they do offer a wide range of complimentary snacks, like their famous Terra chips.
JETBLUE: Business Class (Mint)
In JetBlue’s Mint Class, you get not one but three epic dishes: Pork tenderloin porchetta, burrata stuffed ravioli, and chilled tomato soup.
LUFTHANSA: Economy class
That pasta looks so plain and dry we’re getting thirsty just looking at it. Props for the three sad sprinkles of garnish?
LUFTHANSA: Business Class
Lufthansa’s Business Class, however, is so fancy you get hors d’oeuvres.
AIR FRANCE: Economy Class
Looks like two bottles of red wine are needed to get this down. The baguettes are a nice touch though.
AIR FRANCE: Business Class
Flying Business on Air France? You’ll get an entire dessert flight, including, of course, a macaron.
EMIRATES: Economy Class
This actually looks surprisingly fresh.
EMIRATES: Business Class
Nothing says Business Class like shrimp, but who cares about the meal when there’s an in flight bar serving canapes?
