United Airlines have pledged to offer “restaurant quality” food throughout its networks which is a pretty bold claim considering the bad rep airline food gets.
The U.S Department of Transportation reveals the latest numbers regarding in flight food and the vast range in what individual airlines are spending on food.
Among the ten biggest U.S airlines, United is one of the most generous when it comes to investing in their kitchens spending on average $6.08 per passenger last year. The average for all airlines was $3.61 per person.
The average is so low because budget airlines such as Spirit are included in the mix, spending only 26 cents per person.
Other airlines included: Delta $5.36, Virgin America $3.73 and JetBlue $1.39.
