Photo gallery: Business vs Economy meals

Personally, we love plane food. There’s something about it that’s oddly comforting.

But we’d be lying if we said we’d never dreamt about what Business Class is being served while we’re unwrapping our greyish chicken curry.

Anyone that has managed to muscle their way out of cattle class – into the upper echelons of airbourne society – knows the contrast in cuisines is noticeable to say the least.

But what are the actual differences between Business and Economy meals?

Thanks to The Telegraph UK, we need not sneak into the kitchen and peek at meal-trays, as we now have a photo to photo comparison.

That’s right, The Tele has gathered images of passengers’ meals on the top ten airlines so we know once and for all what we are missing out on.

So without any further delays, here’s a sneak peek into the life of luxe.

So there you have it ladies and gents.

We assume we’ve either made you hungry or prompted you to check your savings to see if a Business ticket is at all feasible for your next flight.
