In the day and age of Low Cost Carriers, many of us are starting to bring more and more substantial food on flights instead of purchasing on board, or relying on the meals they serve, which are quite often less than appetising - especially in economy.
I'd like to know what your favourite foods are to bring on flights? What's the weirdest thing you've seen other people bring on board and eat? What’s the strangest thing you’ve been served as part of an airline meal?
I myself have a habit of taking cold chocolate self saucing pudding (English style sponge pudding) with me, and much to the amusement of many, I've even presented this to people when I am seeing them off at the airport when they are on a long haul flight. It's so comforting and exactly what I want when I'm sitting back watching a movie with 10 hours to go till I land in LA.
I also love taking gourmet cheese and crackers.
The weirdest thing I've ever seen someone eat is a guy who ate a banana that he smeared with vegemite before each bite. Very odd, and the smell of it was quite revolting!
