Why Airplane Food is so Disgusting

Why do they make us suffer this way?


“There’s no fucking way I eat on planes.

I worked on airlines for 10 years, so I know where this food’s been and where it goes, and how long it took before it got onboard.”

Feeling queasy?

There’s too many people onboard, and they didn’t pay enough to be there.

What we pay for an economy class flight is 10x cheaper than what people were paying 60 years ago.

There’s not enough air in this air

At cruising altitude we are sitting at 35,000 feet. The air outside is less than 1% humidity, but thanks to technology, the air inside is 20%.

“There IS no water in this air!!”

So what do I not do?

  1. Don’t drink the booze. As tempting as it is to get completely wasted and black out the entire flight, alcohol is very dehydrating for your body.

What do I do?

If the flight isn’t very long, eat in the terminal. Really stuff yourself.
