A pilot's take on airline meals

"Now, after ten years of international flying, mostly to Europe, I've enjoyed more crew meals than I probably should have."

Today, on a great travel website called, a pilot discusses the behind-the-scenes protocols for cockpit crew service on American Airlines. There's some interesting video on galley preparation on a 767 flight from Rio de Janiero, catered by LSG Sky Chefs. 

"Most co-pilots give the choice of meal to the captain," writes AA Pilot Ken Wien. "And the captain often defers back to the co-pilot. It can become comical at times; neither pilot wanting to make what is probably the least important decision of the flight."
