Guide to the Best Airline Food

Find out which airline to book if you want to tickle your taste buds at 40,000 feet

Our survey shows that almost half of all travellers consider good food and drinks as one of the top factors that increases in-flight happiness. So if food is a key factor for your perfect flight, which airlines should you be booking?

Singapore Airlines is a top choice having been crowned winners at the 2014 Saveur Culinary Awards for economy dining, and in the top 5 in the business and first class category. The airline offers a wider choice of regional dishes from Malaysian dish nasi lemak and street food favourite mee goring to Provencal beef stew and Chilean sea bass. Added to this passengers receive unlimited wine and beverages along with a choice of spirits, including the all-important Singapore Sling.

Runners up in the economy category were Virgin Atlantic, Korean Airlines and Turkish Airlines, the latter of which took first place in a previous Skyscanner food study.

Passengers who are happy to splash out to get a taste of luxury in flight, might wish to fly with Emirates or Oman Air, Saveur’s winners in the first and business class category. Emirates passengers are served seven-course meals which are served on Royal Doulton fine bone china, alongside an extensive range of vintage wines and is comparable to dining in a five star hotel. Passengers flying Oman are treated to an equally impressive menu, kicking off with caviar and Dom Perignon, followed by a selection of canapés before a gourmet menu with a focus on seasonality is served.

Etihad Airways and Delta Airlines also scored highly in this category.
