Don’t you? Of course you do – they’re GREAT!!!

There’s nothing quite like peeling back that warm tin lid to reveal a steaming, perfectly rectangular, tasty meal – usually beef & rice or chicken & rice or, if you’re lucky, potatoes instead of rice.

Then there’s the small packets of butter, milk, sugar, cheese…not to mention the ubiquitous ‘refreshing lemon towel’. I love the plastic cutlery, the crusty bread rolls…and those cute little bottles of wine! A friend of mine once saw a Beninese nun ask for extra wine TWICE then promptly stuff them into her bag!

So, frequent-flyers everywhere, it’s QUIZ TIME!!!

Have a look at these four airline meals (all of which were consumed by yours truly) :

Airline meals

Now all you have to do is match them up with the following:

1. British Airways
2. Air France
3. Royal Air Maroc
4. Afriqiya Airlines

What could be simpler?? Go on, give it a try…

Hmmm…. packaging on D looks like british supermarket design (sainsburys, waitrose…) so I’d say BA… A has president cheese and a proper glass for the wine, so I’d go for Air France… now the two last ones: B has wine, an appetizer that looks moroccan so I’d go for RAM and that leaves C for Afriqiya…

I reckon:

A) Air France (because of the baguette)
B) Royal Air Maroc
C) Afriqiya Airlines
D) British Airways (“chicken toscana” is surely British!)

I’m glad that you did not have to consume them all at once, rob! Pour moi, I’ve never liked the reheated taste..or the cramped conditions for having a meal, rolls falling off the tray, peas rolling down the aisle (Air Zim early 1980s), not being able to fly’ with your elbows among many other challenges. give me Eurostar anyday now, where you can eat your meal in the buffet in peace.
