Get Your Airplane Meal Faster With These Flight Attendant Tips

By Mina Elwell


When you're on a 14-hour flight, you'll likely want to get your meal as soon as possible. A reliable solution to getting your meal quicker is to order a special meal.
In general, if you booked a ticket that entitles you to an airline meal, you have the option of ordering a "special meal" like vegetarian, kosher, or gluten-free.
According to flight attendant Caroline Kneitz, "Special meals, which have to be pre-ordered in advance, are always dished out first."
Many people also believe that special meals are tastier than the average in-flight meal, as they are typically prepared by a local catering company rather than large facilities.
