Eating vegetarian food on a flight can be disappointing if not downright daunting. It's a but of a slap in the face to watch the carnivores get perfectly acceptable, albeit small portions of beef or chicken with potatoes and veg...and see that your dish is vegetable surprise.
I think, interestingly, that one of the wort meals I've had on a plane was while in business class. Seats great, service great, food...crap.
For breakfast we were offered what I'm pretty sure, in retrospect, was barley with boiled spinach, tomatoes, and possibly parsnip. Cold. Cold, I tell you. On purpose cold!
Even if the weirdest part of your meal is guerilla sultanas in an otherwise acceptable pilaf, there can still be improvements.
So, my tips for a better mile high dining experience:
Ask for the fruit plate, the Hindu meal (usually curry, and beef free), or if nothing else an extra roll.
What do you do when flying for comestibles?
