Buying food at airport for flight

Hi

Sorry if this is a stupid question. I often read that people buy food at the airport for the flight. What do you buy and where. We are flying from Gatwick and would like to know where I can pick up decent sandwiches and things. Have looked at airport guide but only see restaurants.

Thanks

Hi HighlandMum!

There are sandwiches (don't know how decent they are) and things like salads and fruit, and also all kinds of sweet & salty goodies... Go here:

click on shops and restaurants, then on your concourse, (they're calling them Airsides) and you'll get a list of places.

Hope this helps!

We usually buy sandwiches from Boots in the departure lounge. We also take some biscuits, crisps etc from home and put them in our hand luggage.

We usually get sandwiches and drinks at boots for the plane and take other snacks and sweets from tesco.

We make "picnic" before leaving home. Sandwiches, biscuits, etc.

Don't like paying airport prices for something I make better at home:-)

That way the children get to pick what they want, therefore eat;-)

Then during the flight, we can eat when we want & not have to (try to) eat the offerings on board....

Boots for us too. The prices and selection were good at Gatwick as they do the lunch deal. But this was for a flight to Hurghada which was deemed to be short haul even though it was five hours so they didn't give you any free food or drink on the flight. I wouldn't bother for a flight to the states, just bring snacks along like biscuit bars and maybe mini Cheddars or whatever

Mike....the "meal deal" in Boots at the airport is the same price as your local high street one
