What’s the deal with airline food?
It’s a question travelers and stand-up comedians have been asking for decades. Bags of peanuts, barely-edible dinner rolls and the dreaded “meat-like substance” have been a staple of in-flight dining for decades. There are even websites devoted to all things airline food, such as AirlineMeals.net.
But did you know that airline food is celebrating a milestone birthday? Eighty-five years ago this month, the first meal was served on a commercial airliner.
The service went away when Britain entered World War II, but was restored in 1952.
CNN’s Jim Boulden pays tribute to the first airline meal in the video above.
