An uneaten meals on airplanes aren't discarded.



They are either kept on the same plane for about four days until eaten, or "traded" to another plane for something else.



I learned a long time ago that even if you don't have any special dietary needs, always preorder a "special" meal. It assures you will get a freshly-prepared one. Order vegan, seafood, vegetarian - whatever; directly order with the airline at least 24 hours before departure time.



You'll be thankful you did!

Sounds like some of the restaurants I have eaten in.

Where is your proof? The catering companies are inspected rigorously.

I'll agree John.

Not that I've flown an airline which has served any food lately, but I always see the catering carts swapped in between flights.
