People who avail flights on a frequent basis for work or leisure travel, don’t usually depend on the food served on the flight. Cost is definitely one reason why – domestic flights seldom include the price of the in-flight meal in the ticket, forcing you to fork out extra cash. But more significantly, these in-flight meal options are not healthy at all. There have been innumerable cases of flight passengers falling ill, as well as cases of contaminated food being served to passengers.
All of this means that your best bet is to carry your own meals on board the flight. There are various meals which you can prepare and take with yourself during the flight. But first, you need to know which specific items are allowed on a flight. Airlines will not allow you to carry any liquids on board. Thus, items like vinegar, oils, jellies, jams and even soups, are allowed on a flight. However, you can carry cakes, sandwiches, fruits, cheese, etc. provided they are wrapped in foil paper properly. You can also take meat, provided it is packed properly. Other than these, gums, candies or chips are also allowed. While booking flight tickets, you can check the list of items allowed, either online or by speaking to a representative of the airline.
