How Airline Meals Are Made
 
Airing today, in an hour from now (22 Feb at 4:30 PM, PT), and possibly later on in re-runs, is Episode 5 of How It's Made, featuring how airline meals are made, for those of you who wax nostalgic....

Probably TMI!:eek:

But I'll try to catch up with it. How It's Made is a fun program. Watched how veggies are canned a few days ago.

I think there's a communication breakdown between the kitchen and the FA regarding that careful placement and presentation they mentioned on the video! :D

I think it's on today.. I'm going to watch it again if it is..

It's educational and entertaining..

Did not see this on TV. But will eventually on YouTube.
Should be interesting and a welcome reminder of my work as Assistant Manager at BDL Terrace Dining Room and Flight Kitchen in 1963

I love the bad acting by the chef and the airline rep in this segment. :D

I like the way they point out they wash their hands before preparing your meal...

thanks mbstone for posting this & xanthuos for the youtube links...

The part I found the most interesting is that the Captain & FO get different meals in case of contamination/food poisoning...

I thought that was the only interesting part of the segment. The rest was just stupid, wash hands, work on presentation, first class meal is more complex then coach.

The title of this thread just makes me chuckle. All I can think of is "This is a question you don't want to ask". Sort of like knowing where sausages come from.

A few shots in that program clearly show J class (Business / Executive First) food for Air Canada. The plates were the older style J servings, but it was distinctly an AC setting.

You mean to tell me that the stuff they serve on planes is REAL FOOD? :eek:

I would have never thought. ;)

Interesting vids.. I thought it was interesting how the pilot/co-pilot eat different meals to minimize the chance of both of them getting sick.

one oddity was the cook flipped the chicken with his bare hand? why not use some tongs? seems kind of unsanitary..
