With air travel warnings still in place due to coronavirus, some frequent air travelers might be itching for an in-flight experience. Even some of the airplane food snacks sound good right about now. If you’re one of those travelers, you might like the idea of getting your airplane food fix at home until it’s safe to fly again.
One airline is even showing fans how to use their airplane snacks in recipes. Stroopwafel banana bread, anyone?!
Order JetBlue cheese and snack trays from Imperfect Foods.
Imperfect Foods is a delivery service that aims to reduce food waste by selling produce and other foods that may have otherwise been tossed or passed on by other stores — or in this case, airlines.
Imperfect Foods CEO, Philip Behn, told The Washington Post that the company has sold 40,000 of JetBlue’s snack trays since the airline food vendor partnered with the delivery service. And now, Imperfect Food subscribers on Twitter are posting photos of their most recent delivery, which includes JetBlue Airlines’ Cheese & Snack Tray.
These are normally $9 on JetBlue flights. You can order the cheese tray for just $2.99 at Imperfect Foods.
Get 15% off United Airlines Stroopwafel orders.
On May 7 United Airlines and Daelmans, the maker of Stroopwafel, started offering 15% off orders when you use code FLYAWAY15. They also shared some of their best Stroopwafel recipes and I’m drooling. This Stroopwafel banana bread recipe that United Airlines shared looks pretty freakin’ legit!
Delta and Southwest Airlines are donating their airplane food to frontline workers and food banks.
Southwest Airlines is donating more than $400,000 in snacks and other in-flight food items to nonprofit organizations and food banks across the country. Their donations will go to food pantries, senior centers, children’s meal programs, and homeless shelters.
Delta Airlines, known for handing out Biscoff cookies on flights, has donated over 200,000 lbs of food to hospitals, community food banks, and other organizations around the world.
So if you’re in the mood for Biscoff’s cinnamon-sugary goodness, don’t look to Delta for a serving. Instead, try ordering directly from Amazon — you can get 20 packs for around $10.
