Expect Nothing but the Best From Your Private Jet Food Menu

Taking a private jet is an excellent way to escape the ever-worsening flying experience. Why deal with crowded airports and air-rage incidents when you can have a driver drop you off at your own jet and fly in peace?

You may be looking forward to relaxing in your plush leather seat as you whizz off on your luxury holiday or business trip. But what can you expect from private jet food?

Whether you are taking a short flight across Europe or flying to Asia or the Americas, you will want to know that your airline will cater for your dietary needs.

The last thing you want is to be stuck with an unappetising meal on your luxury private jet trip.

Keep reading to learn everything you need to know about private jet food catering.

What Food Is Served on a Private Jet Charter?

One of the main benefits of luxury air travel is that you don't need to rely on a mass-produced aeroplane meal. The right meal and drinks will enhance your experience and make your trip memorable.

So what kind of food can you expect during a private jet meal? Anything you want! The type of food you will receive depends on your personal tastes and needs. It will also depend on the country you are in and what is available.

While some airline companies will use catering services, a popular choice is to have your favourite food delivered from a restaurant before the flight. Stories abound of travellers ordering their favourite lobster sandwich or barbecue for their trip.

Some high-end restaurants have started an exceptional service with private jet dining in mind.

Another thing to consider is how the food needs to be served. While an airline company may have a private chef, they will not be on the aircraft with you. Some planes only have a microwave, while others have induction ovens to warm up your food.

A pizza may not be the best choice by the time it gets to you. Sushi, however, could be ideal.

What Tastes Best When Flying?

Choose your meal wisely

When soaring through the clouds, our tastebuds and sense of smell are not the same as when we are on land. The altitude, pressure, and humidity all wreak havoc on our ability to taste food.

The main tastebuds affected are those that perceive salty and sweet flavours. The circulating air also prevents the delicious smells of your meal from hitting your nose. This is key to our perception of flavour.

Light wines, poached chicken, or neutral flavoured vegetables will not have the kick you want. However, foods rich in umami flavour will be ideal. This includes tomatoes, mushrooms, meat, and olives.

Foods with spices are delicious too, but you need to consider that they may have a more pungent smell.

You also want to consider the purpose of your trip. If you are on a short flight to a business meeting, you might prefer something light that won't weigh you down. If you choose a rich, creamy meal, you will feel more like taking a nap than doing deals.
