Food In Flight
Today I discussed the alternatives to buying your meals on board Air Canada flights within North America. For a list of food service establishments at the Vancouver airport, most of which package food to go on board, visit the YVR website.
I also spoke about Lock&Lock airtight containers. My wife introduced me to these storage containers and they really are the best I've ever used. They are made in Korea, and we have purchased them at Home Hardware and Canadian Tire stores.
You might also want to try the take-out food on the 'allo Provence to go' menu from Provence Marinaside in Vancouver's Yaletown.
You never know what you'll find on the Internet, and this week I came across a link that will sate most appetites regarding airline food. It's at a curious yet intriguing website called airlinemeals.net. Take a flyer on it!
