Pegasus Airlines, SAS and KLM have the best on-board food in Europe, according to Skyscanner's annual European Airline Food Awards
Pegasus Airlines, SAS and KLM have the best on-board food in Europe, according to Skyscanner's annual European Airline Food Awards.
The website also surveyed 1,500 international travellers and found that just over half think the overall quality of airline food is good and three-quarters believe it has been improving in recent years. Two fifths of the passengers even admitted they had been envious of a neighbour's meal.
More than 550 European travellers and bloggers took part in Skyscanner's second European Airline Food Awards. They awarded Turkish airline Pegasus the top prize in the low-cost airline category, with British airlines Flybe, Monarch and easyJet coming second, third and fourth.
The short-haul category was won by Scandinavian Airlines (SAS), with Germany's Lufthansa in second, last year's winner Turkish Airlines third and British Airways in fourth place.
Skyscanner's Victoria Bailie said: "The majority of airlines have now realised that the quality of the meals does play an important part in airline choice and can sway regular flyers to travel with them."
Although the airline food may be one less thing to worry about, regular travellers should still make sure they have suitable travel insurance before they fly.
