I never eat on domestic flight except if they give you peanuts or pretzels. I usually eat before I head to the airport. Always been served a meal on every international flight I've been on.

I don't worry about anything under 3 hours.

For longer flights I usually pack a bag of trail mix, a decent loaf of bread, some prosciutto, a nice wedge of cheese, and some carrots. I mix it up a bit though. Tabouli is good, as is a cold pesto pasta dish.

I'm one of the few people who misses the Starbucks that used to be in most airports. A Caesar salad didn't weigh much and took hours to eat!

I generally take water and a granola bar, maybe a bag of carrots, though I feel i eat carrots too loudly (maybe it's just me being sensitive). If they offer coffee, I'll drink it.

I usually just bring some Slim Jims and a bottle of water.

I got a small meal from Houston to San Jose, Costa Rica in United economy class. Since i don't count on meals I just get something to eat in the terminal before the flight.

For domestic USA flights, I usually take a couple of tuna sandwiches together with some kind of snack.

I don't think any US carrier feeds anyone in economy within North America and the Caribbean except the small bag of crackers/pretzels/peanuts, but even those seem to be going away.
Unless you have status. I have lifetime platinum on AA and they feed me even in coach.

Foreign Airlines, especially those from Asia, give proper food and complimentary Alcoholic Drinks even in short haul or Domestic flights.
This is a good source of pics of Airline Food.

I don't think starving customers is a clever policy. Wait till there are casualties (people fainting or at least having migraines or being airsick or more stressed out due to an empty stomach) and they start losing money over them. They'll quickly switch policies!
