Since you, I guess, are from Singapore you should realize that meals have practically disappeared from US domestic flights, at least in coach class. And most of the posters are of that background. If you really want an opinion you should check out FlyerTalk forum or something.

From my limited experience (I fly international, but mostly on one airline to maximize FF points) - probably Singapore Airlines is the best, for first/business class. Do they still have the "book the cook" feature?
I flew Delta Business Class domestically 4-9 years ago a few times and the food was okay but "nothing to write home about".

I commuted cross-country for a summer on Southwest. Brought my own in-flight meals. That was better than any domestic in-flight meal I've ever had.

Overseas, Air France (long time ago) and Air New Zealand. I haven't flown yet on any of the far east airlines.

Flew into Los Mochis,Mexico over a holiday (don't remember the airline - one of the Mexican ones), and they fed us a quite good Christmas dinner. The order of the courses was ... um ... interesting. But it was all tasty.

Oh, I agree. Just commenting on how the service has changed.

The best meal I EVER had on a plane was a full Irish breakfast on Aer Lingus. Don't know how they managed it on a short flight from London.

Best meals ever: Emirates business class. I don't anticipate even experiencing their first class meals.

British Airways used to serve a full breakfast on their short flights from Glasgow to London. Don't know if they still do.

I'm trying to remember when I last had a meal on a plane.

British Airways gave me some sticky rice and candied ginger wrapped in nori for breakfast on one overseas flight. That's probably the best food I've ever been given on a plane.

Let's see. One flight meal was a bagel about the size of a cheerio, but I don't remember what airline.

A local puddle jumper airline at my location gives a granola bar to everyone, even thought the flight is about 15 minutes.

If the flight is going to be over a time period when I normally eat, I take some jerky, some nuts, or maybe some M&M's. Mostly, it is not flight time that runs so long I have to eat. It is all the check-in time and security that makes the day too long to go without some sort of food.

Don't forget: when airlines gave a hot meal on a flight, the food was nasty and the source of a great deal of joking.
