A number of US hotels have begun offering flight-ready takeout meals to their customers who want to avoid the generally unhealthy/low-quality/pricey airport and in-flight meal options, according to a report in USA Today in July 2013.
Hotels’ flight-ready meals are packaged to fit in carry-ons and comply with the Transportation Security Administration’s 3.4-ounce limit for liquids.
Some examples include:
“Meals on the Move” menu by the Hotel Bel-Air, in Los Angeles;
“For Your Trip Home” menu by The Four Seasons, Boston. One choice includes American Spoonbill Caviar with toast – wow!
“Want It To Go, Let Us Know” a la carte menu by The Four Seasons, Seattle, with choices including cheese and crackers, a hard boiled egg and meatless sandwich;
“Breakfast with Wings” a la carte menu by Kimpton’s Hotel Monaco in Denver.
Flight-ready meals provided by hotels are becoming increasing popular as a convenience to their guests as many airlines are axing free in-flight snacks and meals.
