Airline Food: Economy Vs. First Class

PUBLISHED:Feb 07, 2016 | UPDATED:07:37 AM, Feb 07, 2016

What used to be a woman's size 12 in 1968 is a woman's size 4 today; what used to be third-class is economy-class today. What changed? We've grown more sensitive: I'm not overweight, I still fit into a size 12. I'm not a third-class passenger, I'm a price conscious individual that rides in economy-class.

Despite the name games, airline food hasn't changed much. Economy class meals still come in a wrapper, and business or first-class meals come with real cutlery. This list shows the sometimes striking difference between what the different classes eat.

What do you think? Submit your comments and photos below, and remember: economy-class food isn't bad because it's cheap; it's purposefully bad to encourage those with money to buy more expensive tickets!
