If you’ve been at home for weeks and can’t wait to travel, there’s probably one thing you miss more than anything — airplane food. What’s not to love about eating a reheated dinner at 35,000 feet?
Well, Yukon’s Air North recognizes what we’re all going through, and has the solution. A couple of weeks ago the airline made headlines for claiming they have a “healthy balance sheet” and will make it through this situation, unlike virtually every other airline. How refreshing to see.
Now they’re going to bring microwavable airplane meals directly to the doors of Yukoners. Air North recently stopped serving meals on their flights for everyone’s safety, but all isn’t lost. The airline will now deliver airplane food right to your door… if you live in Whitehorse. You can order the food on flightkitchen.ca.
The airline will deliver their “delicious frozen meals” right to your door, and they have seven to choose from. Alternatively, you can pick up the meals at their kitchen.
The meals cost 8.25-9CAD each, and options range from chicken cannelloni to Thai vegetable curry.
How cool of a concept is that? I had the chance to fly Air North from Whitehorse to Vancouver last year (after flying Condor from Frankfurt to Whitehorse, one of the most interesting transatlantic flights), and had an awesome experience.
In all honesty, I think this is a fantastic concept. In light of the current situation I imagine there are a lot of people struggling to figure out what to do with their meals, and this is a great option.
Which airplane food do you wish you could order to your door right about now?
