According to Delish’s recent post on Anthony Bourdain, the late travel legend once told Esquire that “there’s almost never a good reason to eat on a plane. You’ll never feel better after airplane food than before it.” He went on to say, “If there’s food available I’ll load up on whatever the local specialty is. In Tokyo I’ll get ramen, in Singapore I’ll get something from the airport’s hawker center. Shake Shack at Kennedy airport is the best.”
I almost always eat airplane food no matter whether I’m in the back of the plane or the front (I especially eat it when up front), but maybe Tony is right. On my next coach flight I’ll consider bringing food on the plane or—better yet—fuel up before boarding.
How about you? Do you agree with Tony or do you in general like airplane food? Share in the comments below!
