I know what you mean! Was recently on a Northwest flight and I was hungry so I had one of the purchased meals.....really screwed up and had no breakfast that day........the meal was better than regular airline food, but I still don't think it was way better!
I can see the fights breaking out if one meal is gone and only the other is available.......any sky marshalls on board?
Carnival Breeze with Ray B and Aerogirl 5/4/14!
Pamda, just when we thought airline food had reached its lowest eb, in comes a new business for the airlines, bad food at high prices! (With packaging that rivals theMcDonalds' restaurant chain.)
I just wish they would tell us to bring a picnic snack from home and be done with it. It would just end the guessing game. Plus when people are on low carb and other such diets, they wouldn't need to worry about what mystery thay are about to be served.
On one early flight last year, which meant I was in the air during, what would be breakfast, we got absolutely nothing, not a peanut, not a pretzel...when I asked why, they said it was too early to load the plane.....Baloney....................
Trip, with her book & tea!

I have found that many airline prices are so low, that paying for lunch is fine with me! The airlines have had so much trouble since 09/11 that they've had to do something. I know that some people would rather have the $7-10 added back in the fare, what if you don't want what they have on board that day, you still have to pay for it. I'd rather have the option of bringing something on, or buying from the plane. I do think that they should tell passengers before hand, and give them the chance to "prebuy" on their ticket.
I always bring snacks! I'm very picky and 9 out of 10 times whatever I bring onboard is much better than whatever reheated TV dinner they are serving. Though I have a standing order for a fruit plate on long flights.
