And so I have come to the conclusion that next time I travel I will be packing my own snacks and food and I strongly recommend you do the same. I find there are a couple qualities I would request in travel snacks and I think that your fellow travelers would also appreciate some of these efforts.
2. Go for non-gassy items. I would not recommend carbonated drinks OR raw broccoli immediately prior to or during a plane flight.
3. No LOUD foods-in-flight. I like me some chips, but they may be one of the most annoying plane foods EVER. CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH CRUNCH! AHHHH! I am not saying you should stick to "soft foods" I am just saying it would be nice if you saved the carrot sticks for the layover.
