I have now flown four times to and from the Philippines with KLM economy class and the food on board must rank against the worlds worst for lack of choice and imagination for a 12 hour flight.
The menu was thus Newcastle leg on the 09.35 was TUC biscuits the Manila leg Diner/Pasta "no choice" Supper/ Pot Noddles or a Cheese sandwich Breakfast/Hot Egg and Cheese sandwich piece of cake and small fresh fruit selection with what can only be described as a kind of dessert.
That was the sustinance we were offerd on a jouney that for us started when we left our houseat 06.30am
on the 23rd July and finished on the 24th July at 08,05 Manila time.
We ended up eating the fresh fruit and the cups of water and orange juice only.
Airlines like KLM are taking advantage of the captive audience flying to the Philippines and serving up poor food with little or no choice and considering that a return ticked averages £550.00 and the food spend per economy passenger averages between £12/15.00 its a poor return for the passenger.
But KLM remember we have a choice so you better wake up and smell the coffee or you will be flying empty.
