airplane food

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.

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!
