Global travel has reached an all-time low, thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic. With so few passengers to feed, companies which provide airlines with food, drinks and snacks have adjusted to cope with the times and are now offering the very same food to folks who would like to enjoy them at home. And, yes, they even deliver them.

is controversial. Some travellers love it, some profess to hate it. I am personally on the love side. Travelling makes me feel hungrier than usual, and the sight of the cabin crew making their way down the aisles with their food carts excites me. The fact that I get a choice in the matter — chicken or fish? — is an extra touch, and there is always a fun variety of dishes on the tray to enjoy.

My favourite part is unwrapping all the little foil-covered containers to reveal the goodies within. Airline food can be a little lacklustre but, at times, it can be surprisingly delectable.

The companies behind the of several global airlines have turned their attention to customers who are stuck at home.
