The high-pressured environment on airplanes attenuates everyone’s sense of smell, which has a profound effect on the way food tastes. Which is why it’s extra weird that someone in Germany has started a subscription service that brings airplane food right to your door once a week. The menu, which covers stuff like ricotta cannelloni, looks suitably coach, or maybe just a few notches above that since it’s provided by the same people who cook for Lufthansa.
Meals cost almost $13 each — slightly less for the vegetarian option — but the good news is that you can just put the whole frozen meal in the oven and heat. Maybe just make sure your seatbacks and tray tables are in their fully upright and locked positions before you sign up, and maybe also that you have a giant bottle of sriracha ready to go.
