Not Really One Word Wednesday: Airplane

Well, Justin and I have been traveling quite a bit lately- practically every other week this month! This week, I was lucky enough to use an upgrade into first class on United. This was my lunch:

• warm nut mix of almonds, cashews, pecans, and walnuts

• a grilled chicken salad with edamame and yellow and red bell peppers over a bed of romaine lettuce with sesame dressing and a warm whole wheat roll.

• and for dessert, a warm chocolate chip cookie. It was actually all quite good.

I have a chocolate chip cookie theory that if they served the warm cookie and glass of milk to everyone on the plane, not just first class, customer service ratings would greatly improve!

I’ve also been eating the “for purchase” spinach salad with gorgonzola, walnuts and dried cranberries when I sit in economy (which is 95% of the time). It is a much fresher offering over the snack box choices and I have been very pleased with these new options. I find the United fruit, nut and cheese plate to be a pleasing and hearty snack.

So, we'd like to know:

What do you eat on the airplane?

Do you pack your own food?

Do you buy something ahead of time or one the plane?

Any recommendations for food at key airports like SFO, ORD (Chicago), DEN, or others?

I’ll share my answers if you share yours!
