There should be no problem, especially if they charge for meals onboard. depends on the airline. However they tend to be twitchy if you take your own booze. So keep the little 50cl drinks bottles used for soft drinks, etc and fill them up with wine, put them in your resealable plastic bag with all your other liquids, etc. and you will then be fully prepared for a perfect airborne meal.

Buon appetito.

Hi Sandpat

There's no problem taking food onto the plane, liquid is still the problem, but if you buy in duty free then you can take soft drinks on board. You can take alcohol on, they won't let you drink your own, you have to buy theirs.

That's probably wise!!!!! LOL But have to say I was on and XL flight, no meals, but you could buy sarnies and hot food, it wasn't bad and I didn't think too expensive, having said that, it might be expensive for a family.

I wish I'd taken butties! We flew with Thomsonfly with the wonderful Aldo Zilly meals - yeuk, ok if you love stewed cheese! Nasty. No choice at all, cheesy first course, with a cheesy salad, cheese and biscuits and even the dessert had cheese in it! I DONT LIKE CHEESE! The plane stank of it.

Mind you, coming back was equally smelly but I had some emergency munchies in my bag!!

We always take buttys or crusty cobs to be exact and a few packets of crisps but be careful with the crisps, the bags inflate when your up there :) Asda ones are the worse, I opened a packet on the flight in July and the poor woman sitting next to me got showered in crisps. lol

It is only alcohol thatyou cannot taken on board and drink, soft drinks and sandwiches are OK. I always take mine as alot of the time they run out and also they are very expensive.
