LONDON — When the clock strikes midnight on a flight, the flight attendant may be the first person to take off her shoes and grab a bag of snacks for the passengers.
But the first food will be the last meal the plane will ever taste, as the food is destined for the landfill.
For that reason, the airline has a planer on standby to keep the plane’s food fresh and fresh food in the landfill as well as feed its staff.
The airline says its meal planer is also used to store food for those who have lost weight or need to reduce the amount of food they eat.
The planer and the meals are kept in a sealed container to ensure they are safe from the elements and from rodents.
Airlines around the world have plans in place to save on food.
Luxembourg Airlines says its plane meal planner will keep the food on board, and a new planer will also be installed for those flying to Europe.
British Airways says it will have a plan for its staff who are on long-haul flights, as well.
In addition, United Airlines says it has a meal plan for every flight crew member who is required to use it, and will have plans for its flight attendants.
While these plans can save a lot of money, they can also pose a problem for those on the road, which has been hit hard by the food crisis.
Airports around the globe are taking steps to cut down on food waste, but some airports have struggled to maintain a clean environment.
