Check out IRS pub 463. You cannot deduct meal expenses unless you travel away from your tax home and it requires an overnight stay. As flight crew we cannot deduct meals unless we overnight, ie cannot deduct meals on a turn.
You are correct! I keep trying to tell this to people but nobody believes me. It is onyl when you are away from "base" overnight.
Pub 463 is the problem. It is confusing. Why does it specify dispatchers, ATC, ect?
