Flight attendant reveals why she’ll never eat plane food
A flight attendant has said you should always bring your own plane food after admitting that airline meals are “very unhealthy”.
Sharing her insider knowledge on a Quora thread, the flight attendant said even the raw or vegan options aren’t that great.
“The food on your tray is prepared not in the galley but in the aircraft catering which is often done 12 hours before and even days before the aircraft departure,” user Shreyas P wrote online.
“Now, how many such industries do you know where the hot or cold meal was made days before you consume it?”
Claiming to have worked for five major airlines, they went on to say that things like the eggs and fresh fruit are the worst culprits.
“The scrambled egg or the omelette that you just had was not only egg but can be a mix of egg and other substitute,” Shreyas wrote.
“That cut fruit which is on your tray still looks fresh and how is that possible when it was cut hours before the departure, have you ever wondered?”

The reason for it all? Because the air pressure on board a plane messes with your tastebuds the attendant says airlines have tried to make food less bland.
“This makes it super bland. So airline catering in recent years has really pumped up the spices, salts, and fats - all to make your mouth happy.”
