Tips for Better Airline Food Service
If you want to step your airline food game up to the next level, here are a few tips for making your passengers happy.
- Let tea steep longer – If you are serving the tea bag for passengers to steep themselves, make sure to let them know to steep the tea longer than the bag says. The main problem with tea on a plane is that you can never get water to hit full boil at 30,000 feet. Steeping longer will help keep the tea from just tasting like dirty water.
- Avoid onions – Not only are onions notorious for spoiling faster than other foods, but they also can give your passengers gas. That’s not something you want to deal with when everyone is sharing the same recirculated air for hours.
- Skip deep-fried foods – You are never going to get a deep-fried food to crisp up again in a tiny airplane kitchen. It’s better just to leave these items off the menu.
- Have options for those with special diets – If your airline is not already accommodating special dietary needs, you have to start now. The number of people who require gluten-free, halal, kosher, vegetarian, or other specialty meals is increasing. Whether it is a requirement or a choice, passengers expect to be accommodated due to the high cost of flying.
