However, back in the day, there actually used to be some good food on airplanes and it made us rethink our own food options even back at home. It was equivalent to enjoying a meal out at a fancy restaurant, and it was something that really made the flight special. Too bad it’s not like that anymore, right?
These vintage photos from the collection of Scandinavian Airlines show passengers from the 1950s through to the 1980s enjoying gourmet meals such as caviar, lobster, and a whole leg of ham at 35,000-feet.
