World's Worst Airline Food Goes Digital

If you've ever been on a plane, you've more than likely eaten airline food. Although the march of technology has made flying cheaper and faster for travelers, on the issue of cuisine it seems as if many airlines have stood still.

Rock solid meatloaf, slimy salmon, freeze dried eggs-terrible airline food has often been the stuff of legend. Before the Internet, dissatisfied travelers were forced to satiate their food fury with angry complaints to friends, family, and, in the most extreme cases the airlines themselves.

Thanks to some websites however, in-flight meals are now being held to a higher degree of accountability. Sites like AirlineMeals allow users to take pictures of their inflight dinners,and post them along with a rating of 1 to 10 and a description of the meal. The site, which was set up ten years ago, now has meals from over 600 airlines from all over the world ranging from the best to the worst.
