Dining 30,000 Feet in the Sky

So, this may not be a big deal to most. But since I find myself 30,000 feet above the earth at least twice per month, I found a new love for dining in the sky.  


If you've read my earlier post, Don't Call Me Skinny, you've read my mention about my healthy appetite.  Well, that applies everywhere, even in the sky.  I actually get excited when the flight attendant comes around to announce the menu choices. And actually, I've even booked a business class flight based on the whether breakfast or lunch is being served (if my schedule permits).  I prefer lunch. 


I started flying Delta a lot more since they have non-stop flights to Atlanta and New York. I travel to Atlanta or connect in Atlanta at least 10 flights per year. Delta's First Class/Business Class Cabins has its perks that I will outline in my travel section.  But as for food, I must say that I enjoy it 95% of the time.  With selections like Chicken Enchiladas, Beef Tenderloins and Chicken Salad, what's not to love?


United is my favorite!  They had me with a Hot Fudge Sundae for dessert.  Let me start from the beginning. Of course, once the warm towels are passed and the bowl of heated cashews are delivered, it's time to enjoy your meal on flights over three hours. Entrees on United have included pasta dishes, salads and curry. But nothing compared to the scoop of ice cream, topped with warm hot fudge, whipped cream and a cherry on top.  

British Airways has to be the best!  

On our flight home from Spain, champagne was served before take off.  I actually declined the offer but the flight attendant told me (in good fun) that it would be rude not to have a glass, so I played nice and toasted the start of my International Flight back home. The Filet Mignon dinner was by far the best meal I've ever been served in the sky.  It was tender and delicious. Who would have thought that you could get a steakhouse quality meal on an airplane.
