Imagine—airplane food that doesn’t make you wish you’d crashed before the meal service (that is, when they even offer a meal service).
Yes, once again Virgin magnate Richard Branson proves he’s not a guy who quits while he’s ahead. Not only does his budget-fare Virgin America treat even lowly coach passengers to touchscreen entertainment, charging ports, and free live satellite TV, it also serves food so tasty and healthy it wins awards.
For the third time, Virgin has won dietdetective.com’s annual airline-food survey, with 41⁄2 stars out of 5. Singled out were Virgin’s breakfast (Udi’s granola), snack box (hummus, nuts, and tuna), and meals like grilled chicken with hummus and a nutrient-rich veggie wrap.
Check out the other airline food champs and, well, the bottom feeders. All airlines are ordered according to their rank, per DietDetective.com. They ranked the airlines based on the healthiness of the meals and snacks they serve economy-class passengers on domestic flights. Aside from the macros, an airline’s cooperation in providing nutritional information was also factored in. "Healthy standouts" were abridged from DietDetective.com's "Best Bets."
