The 13 Worst Foods to Ever Eat on an Airplane

Posted on February 15 2019


Unless you’re flying first class or you’re aboard an international flight, meals and snacks are fairly scarce on airplanes these days, so it makes sense to pack a little something to munch on while you’re traveling.

The problem? Many meals—and yes, that includes beverages—don’t fare too well when you’re high in the sky, and they just don’t make for ideal airplane food. Some in-flight snack options and drinks can cause bloating or dehydration, while others are so pungent, you could offend fellow passengers. You also might be surprised by which orders annoy flight attendants the most.

We’ve rounded up 13 foods and drinks that have earned themselves a spot on the “no-fly” list, all to help you out during your travels. These are the foods to avoid eating on an airplane to keep from feeling discomfort and annoying others for the entire flight.
