Airline Opens Restaurant That Serves Nothing But Plane Food

Airline Opens Restaurant That Serves Nothing But Plane Food

When you're flying around the country or around the world, there's one aspect of airline travel that certainly divides people.

We're all united on the crying babies, the unexplained delays, the person who reclines their seat way too quickly and way too far and the seemingly unending line for the bathroom sometimes.

But when it comes to plane food, there are some who love it and some who despise it.

Well, if you're in that first category then you'll love the news that an airline has decided to open a restaurant and sell nothing but plane food.

Yep - AirAsia has done enough positive market research to suggest there is a big enough appetite to open an entire eatery where people will willingly ask for a tray of food that makes you feel like you're on a long-haul flight.

The restaurant's general manager, Catherine Goh, said in a statement: "We are very proud to extend what started out as an in-flight menu into new markets and reiterate our support for local and (Southeast Asian) producers, suppliers; apart from creating new job opportunities with affordable franchising."

Santan has now been opened in Kuala Lumpur and it will serve the same meals that customers see on AirAsia flights.

According to CNN, people can lap up Malaysian foods such as nasi lemak, satay skewers and beef rendang as well as Chinese-Malaysian style chicken rice, chicken inasal from the Philippines and Vietnamese pho.

There's no word on whether the food will be served up like you're sitting in Seat 56D way back in Economy Class and whether you'd get your standard bread roll and circle of butter included in the meal.

AirAsia already has plans to open loads more restaurants in this fashion because they reckon people will really like it.

The jury is out on whether people will willingly want to get plane food but there could be a big market for it. Only time will tell.
