Mealtime Monday: Eastern European Airline Food

turkish airlines vegetarian istanbul chisinau

When a Mealtime Monday falls before a Travel Tuesday, the only way to celebrate is with a shot of some airline food.  Here’s the Turkish Airlines vegetarian meal that I was served between Istanbul and Chisinau.  A few cooked vegetables were served with a dollop of hummus, a whole-wheat roll, crackers, fruit salad and a sealed container of water.  Yeah, it’s obviously nothing special, but I appreciate the availability of a vegetarian choice.  It amazes me to think that Turkish Airlines can put together a vegetarian snack between Istanbul and Chisinau, but the American Airlines flights I will be taking tomorrow from Canada to Peru (via Dallas – Fort Worth) do not offer a vegetarian option.  Hear that?  Yeah, that’s the sound of me “harrumphing”, mid-air.
