airplane food

Is there a special term for "airline food" that captures the reality of how terrible it is?!  In U.S. we make jokes about it.

This question relates to:

Hi Carole,

The term for 'airplane food' would normally be :

'plateaux-repas servis à bord d'un avion' 

I have heard French people call it a 'collation' which is more a comment on the lightness of the meal than its quality.

I think the same jokes are made about 'airplane food' but can't think of a specific French term for it.

Hope this helps!
