Airborne Meals


Airline food is not just a matter of flavour
From the beginning it was always doomed
If a third of the taste buds are on holiday
It makes no difference what meal is consumed


Flying Facts: You lose out on a third of your taste buds during flights


zappai: no duty on my goods

the term duty free
means absolutely nothing
just say tax free shop


Airborne Meals

I consider myself able
To consume an ordinary meal
But from a bouncing tray table
The result is less than ideal


I told
the flight attendant
Thank you
For the happy meal
He responded
Sir,
You had the chicken
To which
I replied
I know
It was so excited
It had never flown before

Trust and caution
In each portion
If one should fall
The other stands tall


Flying Facts: Pilots and co-pilots are required to eat different meals (not mandatory on all airlines)

  1. Had to laugh about the Happy Meal! I think that the airline food issue is mostly with US flights – the Thai and Japanese meals are much tastier… maybe they use MSG to perk up the sleeping taste buds?

      1. That must be on overseas flights or first class, the last time I had a flight I got a choice of pretzels or nuts with a soft drink chaser. 🀨
        I remember back in the day when people actually dressed nicely for a flight and you did indeed get a pretty good meal depending on the duration of your flight.
