When Airplane Food Was First Class: A Mouthwatering Look at What In-Flight Meals Used to Be Like in the Golden Age of Flying

Have you ever had any complaints about the meals served up to you during a long-haul flight? They are admittedly not the same as they were before. You can now travel back in time to the golden age of flying when airline food was actually first class.

To mark their 70th anniversary, Norway-based Scandinavian Airlines released a collection of vintage photographs of onboard dining in the 1950s to 1980s depicting passengers being served some tasty bites in such an elegant way that is nowhere to be seen today. Plane food has just changed so much compared to the last couple of decades. Guests were supplied by everything from juicy lobsters and caviar to freshly sliced ham and meat.

Check out these awesome mouthwatering vintage photos that show passengers being served the finest dishes including lobsters and caviar.
