Over 550 European travellers and bloggers took part as food critics in cheap flight specialist Skyscanner’s second annual study of the quality of onboard culinary offerings. 

In the short-haul category it was Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) that triumphed. Germany’s Lufthansa came in second place and last year’s winner Turkish Airlines took third place ahead of British Airways, while Russia’s Aeroflot came in fifth place.

In the low-cost airline category, Turkish airline Pegasus, which operates flights from London to many destinations in Turkey, took the number one position. British airlines dominated the leader board, with Flybe in second place, Monarch in third, and easyJet in fourth place. Spanish airline Vueling took the number five spot.

In the long-haul dining category, Dutch airline KLM claimed the number one position, followed by Aeroflot, SAS, Air France and British Airways.

Overall, SAS, Aeroflot and British Airways performed well, each appearing in the top five for their long-haul and short-haul meals.

A Skyscanner survey of more than 1,500 international travellers also revealed that 54% of air travellers believe the overall quality of airline food is currently good, while three-quarters think that it is improving compared with previous years. 

Airline food now appears to be so good that 43% admitted to being envious of their neighbour’s choice of meal.
