For many travelers, great experiences of their destinations of choice often begin on the flight. While impeccable inflight service always leaves lasting positive impressions, food served on the flight is another way to make the trip memorable.
Airlines have realized the importance of serving delicious — and Instagram-worthy — meals, be it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It’s a simple way to introduce passengers to a local cuisine and pique their curiosity about what’s on their plate. After all, food not only fills the stomach, but also serves as a gateway to new and exciting cultural experiences that lay ahead.
