Do You Miss Dining on Airline Food? This Can Help…

Remember the days when people used to travel by airplane? Passengers used to be able to travel from Atlanta to certain destinations in Europe in as few as eight hours or from Shanghai to New York in as few as 15 hours — but even during those short periods of time, people would get hungry and be served a meal by members of the flight crew so that they may be able to dine while aboard the airplane on their way to their destinations…

…and despite having a history of being ridiculed for their quality, airplane meals were still enjoyed by a majority of the passengers who depended on them for sustenance — but some people actually miss the experience of dining on a meal aboard an airplane…

…especially as the 2019 Novel Coronavirus — which is also known as COVID-19 or 2019-nCoV — pandemic continues to decimate the entire travel industry and cause airlines to either drastically cut flight schedules or close operations altogether until further notice.

If you are one of those people, this may be the solution for you: The United Polaris Cookbook from United Airlines, which “features a collection of mouthwatering recipes inspired by the United on-board dining experience. With over 40 recipes from United’s Executive Chefs and chefs from The Trotter Project, you’re sure to fall in love with the ingredients, techniques and flavors of these culinary creations.”

Originally sold for $29.99, you can purchase this cookbook for $20.88 — which is a discount of greater than 30.37 percent.

I personally enjoy dining aboard an airplane — even if I am seated in the economy class cabin — as it is part of the experience of flying, in my opinion…

…but I am not about to purchase that book. I will simply wait until I am able to travel by airplane again.
