There’s been a bit of blogosphere buzz about whether or not airplane food is actually getting better. On a recent flight to Amsterdam, I noticed that while the food wasn’t much different from past years, there were definitely some enhancements to the drink menu, courtesy of Delta. So I decided to try the Rande Gerber (a.k.a. Mr. Cindy Crawford) Margarita signature cocktail. The flight attendant had never served one before (we were flying on a Northwest plane), but she gamely tracked one down and mixed it into a very cute plastic cocktail shaker.
The verdict? Better than what I’ve had at Applebee’s, but certainly not what you would find at Barrio. Still, given the length of the flight, it was a nice alternative. It also relaxed me to the point where I fell asleep before the opening credits of “I Love You, Man” were finished.
What have you noticed about airplane food and beverages recently? Have you seen any improvements?
