So, I'm leaving for the vacations, and I've ordered a "Low Fat" meal for my flight. I'm so curious to see what they put in! Any one have any experiances?

Well I flew united and Korean Airlines in December and also ordered low fat. If I remember correctly it was some kind of fish thing with veggies. I think next time I go for "regular" stuff, it looked more appetizing. lol

Not sure if it's because of traveling or change of time zones, or food, but I was starving all the time. I ate on the plane, and on stop overs (on the way back). lol Good thing I  brought some Bitter Sweet chocolate (ones sold in pound bars in Trader Joes). They provided an excellent snack on the way to Thailand so I didn't have to buy food on the way there.


I ordered a Seafood Meal on China Airlines last December and got grilled fish with veggies for one meal and seafood pasta for the other. All I can say is that it was delicious. My seatmates were all staring at my food enviously. If your airline has the Seafood Meal option, I strongly recommend you order it!

Here's an article on airplane food: rplane-eats-exposed-an-hg-survival-guide-to-g uilt-free-travel-treats;_ylt=AhGHu23JFrDdol.x caiNeKxmY.Y5

Personally, I would just bring my own food...

Good luck with that on a 21 hour flight with multiple lay overs.


I will also be taking a long flight with Singapore Airlines in a few weeks so I am interested in hearing how you find your low fat meal.


Enjoy your trip!

Thanks for all the links! The Hungry girl one was really help-ful. My parents and brother took the seafood meal...but I'm not much of a fan for fish. Thanks for the help!

ha,  i am such a lame cook and too cheap to pay to go out to eat, that i actually look forward to airplane food,  i was always getting the veg meal, but now i have found on my delta flights its usually chicken or pasta,  my veg meals were pretty bad then,  but i have had some really good ones, and when you get the veg meal you get fruit,  sure 2 grapes but its better than that mini dessert staring at you begging to be finished.

singapore airlines' food is very good. their menus are accommodating too. have a good trip!

I agree, omonica.  Singapore Airlines has the best food I've ever had on an airplane.  And was very accurate in their descriptions!  Have a great time!
