What do you think of Airplane food in Economy Class? Wonder what is being served in Business Class?
You wake up in the middle of the night, dart to the airport to catch a red eye (early morning) flight? After a cumbersome checkin of the luggage, and annoying security check, you finally make it to the flight and you’re all set to take off. It’s been a few hours since you’ve been awake and the hunger rats are running wild in your stomach. You patiently wait as the cabin crew first serve the passengers in the Business Class, behind closed curtains and you can smell the amazing aroma of their food and hear the champagne pop and pour.
Before your hunger is about to reach its peak and you call the crew, you are pleased at the sight of the commencement of food and beverages for the economy class passengers. Your much needed breakfast is finally served to you in an all plastic – container, spoons, butter knife and fork. As you slowly start eating you realize the food is bland, tasteless, pre-cooked hours before and just reheated for you. With no other choice, you go ahead and eat it anyways and thank the free booze with the meal for saving the day.
The class divide has been prevalent in the airline industry since the birth of aviation. Economy class meals still come in a wrapper, and first-class meals come with real cutlery. Economy-class food isn’t bad because it’s cheap; it’s purposefully bad to encourage those with money to buy more expensive Business class tickets!
It helps being Rich!
