Since it has been a year, we will be starting to write new reviews about the travel sites we once wrote about last year, just to give you a heads up of the current status or changes of a particular online travel agency. Things can change within a year; that’s why we decided to rewrite about some of the travel search engines and give you the freshest feedback for 2016.
In this review, we will be re-talking about AirlineMeals.
AirlineMeals Reviews 2016
The travel site that provides “Nothing but airline food” was established in 2001 by a 40-year-old admirer of Turkish cuisines. Marco Hart showed appreciation over Turkish food and started to take pictures of his meals on board, since he’d been flying back and forth between Amsterdam and Turkey to visit his Turkish girlfriend. Then, sharing his meal photography to his friends at home aroused attention.
It was during his free time at work, browsing through his album of inflight meals, that he thought of making a domain that will help frequent flyers (like him) share what an airline offers on board. He literally searched online for airline meals and stumbled upon only 20 images. He saved them and sought permission to use those images as part of his own web page, which is now more commonly known as “AirlineMeals.“
How Does AirlineMeals Work?
In 2002, AirlineMeals stopped its growth since there were no available images to add the site. The founder thought of seeking help from travellers to send images. This had boosted the development of AirlineMeals. Now, the travel site had been one of the most useful online references to determine what will a customer expect during their flight on a specific airline.
Basically, the purpose of the travel company is not to earn money. AirlineMeals freely gives information on the airline’s meals on board. What makes it more accurate? Actual passengers like us are the ones who share pictures and snapshots of their current inflight meal.
And, as of today, AirlineMeals has over 720 airlines listed on their domain with a reference of 40,120 pictures which grows daily. The main page displays the most recent image of the inflight meal posted on their site. It also gives the option to check on the full review given by the actual sender of the image. Information include the date of flight, which airline, flight number, and aircraft model.

AirlineMeals doesn’t disclose information regarding their head office or any contact number to call. Regarding that, Marco Hart doesn’t need customer service for the travel site since they don’t accept payment and no money or sale is involved. Like last year, the travel site doesn’t have reviews posted online. This is probably because AirlineMeals just gives us feedback about inflight food. Who would have thought someone will have the heart to actually give us an inflight menu right before you book with an airline.
