Airline ‘food’

March 4, 2009

At the risk of this letter’s over-exposure, I am linking here to that fantastic complaint letter to Richard Branson about Virgin Airlines food which did the rounds on blogs & email lately. It has such a lovely playful tone (if bad spelling makes you retch, stop here).

Airline food is, as we all know, disgusting in almost all its forms. On a recent trip to the UK I found myself, by the end of the  journey, unable to distinguish the smell of the food from the smell of the passengers. All those bodily aromas mingling with the revolting farty smell of the food – errrughh.

Here is quite a nice piece on airline food by Fred Ferretti in an old New York Times article.
