What a different a few years make since the last time I traveled. I can remember eating the greasy food at the airport, maybe getting a fancy coffee drink and picking up some kind of sweet like a cookie. Not this time, I came prepared. Flying is not a time I will experiment with different foods.
I kept it simple. I took a a couple of pieces of plain pita, 2 bananas and a handful of almonds. I ate my usual cereal and milk for breakfast, but I was hungry at the airport, I finished 1 piece of pita, 2 bananas and half of my almonds before I boarded my flight.
I also wanted to stay hydrated before getting on the dry airplane. I drank about a liter of water before the flight and with the few cups of water they give us on the place I was ok. I also asked the flight attendant for a bottle of water, which she was happy to provide. This way I did not have to wait for water if I was thirsty.
The food on the flight was not bad. I ordered a veg lacto meal. I was hoping for some kind of pasta dish with cheese, but I received beans, lentils and rice for lunch. For the breakfast meal, I received a yogurt, salad and some bread and cream cheese. They provided granola for the yogurt. For the salad, they provided a nut mix.
These kept me full and I was not starving after I landed.
