Airline food is what it is. Some people like it and others find it awful.
When it comes to a red-eye flight across the Atlantic; it can often be challenging to start “the most important meal of the day” off right. Unfortunately a lot of airlines have cut back on their offerings for the morning service, but there are still a few whom really do excel. So lets take a look at some of my favourite breakfasts I have enjoyed at 30,000ft.
Waffles are great wherever you are, however I was particularly impressed with the Flaxseed-grain waffles I enjoyed when flying in Premium Economy. They were served with a winter spice fruit compote and maple syrup on the side. The photo above is before I poured over the maple syrup. I may have had a sugar rush, but it did help to fight off the jet lag.
Unless it was scrambled, I had never really been a fan of eggs; but that changed about a month ago when I decided to be a little bit daring and order poached eggs on my Business Class flight from Los Angeles to London. Served on a toasted muffin with Canadian bacon and steamed spinach; it was one of the nicest breakfasts I’ve experienced in the air or even on the ground.
Easy for cabin crew to deliver or merely throw at you, the good old boxed-up presentation of a second-service offering still remains on a few carriers at least. On a flight from Orlando to London in Economy, I was pleasantly surprised to find a few items substantial items tucked inside. I’d say that was more than enough to get me fuelled up for the day ahead.
- English Breakfast anyone?
Okay, this doesn’t actually look appetising but it wasn’t awful. I enjoyed a classic “English” breakfast when flying back from San Francisco with a well-known carrier in their Economy cabin.
