    This was another office discussion today, now we hate airline food and wont touch it. We refuse all food on the plane and take our own. Even the smell makes me feel sick but we see other people wolfing it down

    Ive been with ba and virgin, both are just awful.

    What do you think? Who do you travel with and whats the food like? Is anyone else as picky as us and refuses all food on the plane?

    Ok I'll be the first to own up. I travel with Virgin and I quite like their food. Ok it's not cordon bleu but it fills a gap and takes up a half hour of boring time.

    We fly with Virgin. DH eats everything and I pick I usually eat the crackers and cheese but I don't like the main courses much and I absolutely loathe the chocolate pudding!

    Virgin, BA & others and I won't TOUCH the food.

    In the past I've accepted the trays and left everything but now I'll say erm no food just the drinks please. Give Virgin their due, they normally ask me if I'm ok and if there's anything else they can get for me. Can't say fairer than that, it's not the flight attendants who arrange the meals after all.

    Even the smell of them getting lunch ready makes me want to be sick and I have to concentrate on something else or try and sleep.

    I really feel that they try far too hard to be fancy The BEST food I've ever had on any airline has been when they've kept it simple, a bacon sandwich or something.

    Funny you should say that Keith as that`s what I choose for breakfast whenever we are fortunate enough to travel in UC.
    VA always manage to burn the bread to a crisp though. It seems like they must "cook" [or should I say microwave] the bacon and bread roll together.

    Nope. Don't like it (never did) and bring my own (which doesn't really count as I bring my own every where LOL) but blech.

    I did have an airline attendant offer me cashews on a recent flight as I'd refused all of their food choices... will say though that the fresh fruit looked reasonably decent (but who knows what they put on it to keep it fresh looking... ).

    Not a fan of airport food though either, so if I needed "real food" I'd bring it with me...
