Off To Market: Airplane Snacks

I am an avid traveler and fly often, sometimes shorter flights from Oakland to San Diego and sometimes longer flights from San Francisco to exotic international destinations involving Spanish speaking countries.

If you fly like I do, you'll have noticed a dramatic difference in air travel recently. Gone are the free food and meals! Sure if the flight is a quick one and under two hours, no free food is necessary. However if the flight crosses the nation, that's six hours with nothing but a tiny bag of peanuts. In a few weeks I'll be visiting my friend Andrew in NYC and I need your help readers! I want you to send me your best ideas for airplane snacks. The food can be premade at a gourmet supermarket or recipes of your own for travel friendly snacks. Save your finds to the Yum Market on TeamSugar with the keyword tag, Airplane Snacks. Likewise, add your recipes to the recipe database, once again tagged with Airplane Snacks.

To learn more about the Yum Market and posting recipes to the database, please read geeksugar's detailed description.

Just face it and bring your own food. I was flying out of Kennedy a few weeks ago and went to get a water and a snack for the two and a half hour flight to Florida and came across a new snack bar called KIND which looked pretty good so I bought it and it was relly good. And throw a few extra in just in case you get caught on the ground for a few hours and they don't let you off. Happy Flying!

I usually take nuts and fruit that can take the abuse of being in my carry-on.

Yeah, the only flight I've been on recently that offered food was BA to London. I even heard a story about JetBlue flights (or maybe it was American) that had to sit on the tarmac somewhere for 8 hours...and they made people pay for those sad little boxed lunches they sell.

I flew US Airways last week and didn't even get peanuts!! Both ways! And it was a 6 hour flight!! This has happened this way the past few times I have flown. When I flew to Alaska.. (8 hour trip) they offered us meals.. but, you had to pay for them.. and they looked disgusting! I'm all for this.. bring your own!

I've flown on Delta recently and had tons of free food! On my flight from Portland, OR to Atlanta which left early morning, I got both breakfast and a snack. On the flight from Atlanta to DC, which is only an hour long, I got a snack. It was pretty impressive, seeing as I was expecting to get none!

CS, what airline do you fly on? I've got to fly with them! On most domestic flights here, you're lucky to get a pack of peanuts, although I've been on flights where they've run out of those before it was my turn too! I'm all for airplane snacking and bringing extra water too. I get so dehydrated on planes.
