Someone mentioned the meal you get on short haul flights in Asia, this depends on the airline but yeah we've been served meals on 70 minute flights. Flight attendants are also a bit more pleasant on the eyes than western carriers.

Such a short haul flight with a (light) meal service would be HKD - TPE. The FA's are pretty efficient - I don't know how they do it.

We had the same thought. It left me wondering when the last time was that the OP sampled airline food. If I can't identify it, I'm not eating it.

I was just on the flight two weeks ago. This time I had tried the Ssambap (Korean Lettuce Wrap). There is even English instruction teaching you how to eat. (I am not a Korean)

This is Economy Class Food.

On the contrary, usually I eat everything even I can't identify as long as they tell me what it is.

I don't mind being served three meals on a flight.

I only mind being served 5-course meal in Business Class. It takes almost an hour to finish while I prefer to have more time to lie down to sleep.

Never been on a flight long enough for three meals, but always have two meals on my trips to/from Europe. Also they hand out snack stuff, drinks.

I can't imagine taking kids anywhere for 12 hours and not bringing your own snacks. I mean stuff happens. I don't even go anywhere myself for that long without taking some almonds or a granola bar, and a bottle of water. What if you are stuck on the tarmac for hours?
