Airline meal


An airline meal, airline food, plane food or in-flight meal is a meal served to passengers on board a commercial airliner. These meals are prepared by specialist airline catering services.

These meals vary widely in quality and quantity across different airline companies and classes of travel. They range from a simple snack or beverage in short-haul economy class to a seven-course gourmet meal in a first class long-haul flight. When ticket prices were regulated in the American domestic market, food was the primary means airlines differentiated themselves.

The first airline meals were served by Handley Page Transport, an airline company founded in 1919, to serve the London–Paris route in October of that year. Passengers could choose from a selection of sandwiches and fruit.

The type of food varies depending upon the airline company and class of travel. Meals may be served on one tray or in multiple courses with no tray and with a tablecloth, metal cutlery, and glassware (generally in first and business classes). Often the food is reflective of the culture of the country the airline is based in.

The airline dinner typically includes meat (most commonly chicken or beef), fish, or pasta; a salad or vegetable; a small bread roll; and a dessert.

Caterers usually produce alternative meals for passengers with restrictive diets. These must usually be ordered in advance, sometimes when buying the ticket. Some of the more common examples include:

For several Islamic airlines (e.g. EgyptAir, Emirates, Etihad Airways, Garuda Indonesia, Gulf Air, Iran Air, Mahan Air, Iran Aseman Airlines, Qatar Airways, Saudia, Biman Bangladesh Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, Royal Brunei Airlines and Turkish Airlines), in accordance with Islamic customs, all classes and dishes on the plane are served a Muslim meal with Halal certification – without pork and alcohol. While Emirates, Etihad, and Qatar are still providing bottles of wine to non-Muslim passengers, the cabin crew does not deliver alcoholic beverages lest to violate Islamic customs, unless those non-Muslim passengers request it. Because Iran and Saudi Arabia apply strict Sharia regulations, those countries' airlines do not deliver pork or alcoholic beverages, and all airlines flying to or from Iran or Saudi Arabia are prohibited from serving either. However, Garuda Indonesia still serving alcoholic beverages (whiskey, beer, champagne and wine) to non-Muslim passengers.

Airline service trolley


An airline service trolley (variously known as airline catering trolley; airline meal trolley; trolley cart) is a small cart supplied by an air carrier for use by cabin crew inside the aircraft for transport of beverages, food and other items during a flight.

The airline service trolley system was introduced in the late 1960s at the same time as a new generation of large "widebody" aircraft were entering into service with the airlines. The significantly larger number of passengers on these aircraft meant that meals could no longer be efficiently delivered by hand, as they had been up until that time.

The growth of at-seat service on long distance rail has led to the adoption of similar service trollies for this purpose.

The trolley is a rigid box form with castering wheels at each corner that can be braked to hold the trolley in position. Full and half size trollies are made. The front (both full and half size) and rear (full size only) have doors, and handles are provided at the top. There are currently several design families of trolley in use:

Individual carriers often customize an existing trolley family for their uses. Full size trolleys are generally about 0.3 metres (0.98 ft) wide, 1 metre (3.3 ft) tall, 0.75 metres (2.5 ft) long, and weigh about 25 kilograms (55 lb) unladen. Lighter weight designs are also available.

Al fresco dining


Al fresco dining or dining alfresco is eating outside.

In temperate climates, al fresco dining is especially popular in the summer months when temperatures and weather are most favorable. It is a style of dining that is casual and often party-like in its atmosphere.

In order to promote and accommodate the pedestrian activity and vibrancy associated with al fresco dining, some communities have passed ordinances permitting it, including the service of food and beverages to customers at pavement tables until late at night.

The term has also been borrowed by the automotive community as al fresco motoring, to describe the activity of driving in a convertible with the roof retracted, since under such conditions the driver is exposed to the open air.

The phrase al fresco is borrowed from Italian for "in the cool [air]", although it is not in current use in that language to refer to dining outside. Instead, Italians use the phrases or . In Italian, the expression usually refers to spending time in jail. The Spanish meaning of al fresco is similar to Italian, and Spaniards use fuera or al aire libre to refer to outside dining.
