Airline Food...yum or yuck!

Airline food isn't known for its quality, but it tides you over if you're flying during meal time. And these days you'll be lucky to get that free bag of peanuts. If you ever wondered how healthy some of this food is, we'll you're about to find out. Yahoo! put together this list with the airlines ranked from 1 to 5, 5 being the healthiest. 

The survey includes health ratings, average calories per airline, cost, comments, food offerings, calories and exercise equivalents. The average number of calories per food item for all airlines is 360, a drop from last year's 388.

United's Food for Purchase

The last time I had some food on a flight I bought a turkey sandwich for a little less than $6 and it gave me an upset stomach :( Hopefully the food on our upcoming trip is better!

I also just read an article where a pilot held a flight for two hours until he had a sandwich delivered to him before he took off....that is LAME!

What do you think of airline food?
