NYT asks, what's the deal with airline food?

    There isn't any of it anymore. Thus, an exhaustive investigation turns up evidence that, particularly when flying coach, travelers often bring food onto the plane -- food that they have prepared at home or, more often, acquired at one of the many dining-service establishments located throughout the airport.

    Travelers are permitted to carry on solid foods, but the Transportation Security Administration prohibits carrying through the security checkpoint more than 3.4 ounces of consumable liquids or pastes including spreads, salsa and yogurt. Those items can be purchased beyond the security checkpoint, however, and carried aboard the plane.


    If anyone is starting one of those "Best Journalism of 2016" threads, this seems like a natural.

    And why do they call it Ovaltine? The mug is round. The jar is round.

    The larger point, of course, is that this is tearing away at the moral fabric of our once-great nation.

    It takes real character to eat airline food.

    I wish more planes would spring leaks and drop that blue poo on people who deserve it.
