Exotic bites in airlines of India

Posted on


There was a time when flying used to be an experience itself. Thanks to the varied network of airlines and economical flight tickets, it has become easy for the common man to reach a desired destination in less duration. Now the time has come when there’s a lot more to flying, a time when add-on services matter as much as reaching safely within the stipulated period.

Meals are an important part of every flight and it’s not just about food anymore. Almost a decade back, we would loathe at the quality of the food offered. Fortunately, the scenario has changed and airlines have begun to provide a variety of taste and flavours on their menu card. Ranging from the spicy and juicy chicken to the royal Indian thali, meals in different airlines’ of India have the power to get your taste buds kicking.

Air India, Air Asia India, GoAir and Indigo serve some of the best airline food for all its domestic as well as international tourists. Let’s have a look at the kind of meals you can expect on your next flight.

Food for delight on-board


A combination of fast food along with Indian cuisines, served with beverages served in a platter. The array of choices available also depends on the class you’re travelling in. Meals served in Business Class are different from what is served in Economy. While in Economy, you do not have as many options as you will find in Business Class.

The Desi Platter

    My advice — be extra careful with sandwiches. I had a Chicken Junglee sandwich on an Indigo flight last year. Got food poisoning, requiring antibiotics and disruption of work. A friend recounted a similar experience he too had.

    The Center for Strategic and International Studies is indeed a very prestigious think tank.a0It was obviously a flattery. The Americans are getting better at reading the Chinese mind but we are progressing faster than them.a0In the normal case I’ll fly to New Haven, instead of driving; I’m quite confident that opportunities of visiting Yale abound in the future so no rush at all:)
