In-Flight Meal: Great So-so or Not at All

Part of a great in-flight experience especially during a long hour trip is the food that each airlines provide to all the guests on board.

Recently, I participated the Skyscanner Airline Food Review and I have chosen Philippine Airlines. I remember my friend saying, PAL serves the best meal during flight compare to other Filipino-operated airlines. I was not convinced at first until I experienced it.


With some of the airlines I’ve already took, so far Philippine Airlines stood out when it comes to the inflight meal they offered. With the amount we paid, I guess the food that they served on my flight to Singapore was well prepared and served (again, this is in comparison with the other previous airlines I’ve already took).

Skyscanner sets a the criteria on how we will evaluate the food and we will score it from one to ten (10 being the highest). I believe that the criteria that they set is very valuable since it is the most important thing that we, passengers should know.

Value for Money: 8

With the set of food in my tray, I guess the money that I have paid for is all worth it. I’ve got a bread and butter, a veggie, rice and viand, plus dessert. I was able also to choose the drink that I want.

Taste: 8

The taste was really good. I thought it will only be ordinary or disappointing just like how other airlines prepare theirs.

Presentation: 8

Our meal was well-prepared and well-presented. Everything was placed on a tray accordingly. All the food were covered tightly while the condiments were properly wrapped. Spoon, fork and knife is of good quality compare to those ordinary disposable ones that break easily. They even provided a towellete (not just ordinary tissue paper).

Menu Choices: 9

The good thing I like about this in-flight meal is that they have a different variety of items that we can choose from. It was pretty impressive compare to other airlines which only offer two to three options. It would be a bad experience to take something you didn’t like but you are forced to because you’re very hungry. haha!


*Disclaimer: I am not in any way connected to Philippine Airlines. My score given to this particular task is based from my own opinion and experience. This review is part of Skyscanner’s way to gather data from those travelers who are willing to contribute on the survey of the best inflight meal being served by airlines across the globe.
