Bananas, cereal bars, corn, crab cakes, cabbage, refried beans, apples. And coffee with milk to wash it down. And a quart of apple juice.


It's great, I get the whole cockpit to myself. :D


Seriously, I like Clif Bars a lot.

Apple Newtons. Can't explain it, but when I fly, I crave 'em.

Krispy Kremes, the messy ones that make you look all powdery and covered in glaze.


It was the Glaze from the Krispy Kreme I swear.....

You mean you don't have First of Business class service and a company policy that the FAs must check on you every 30 minutes. :rolleyes: :D .

banana's, granola bars, OJ, grapes, graham crackers, snack crackers, PB&J sandwiches, water.

I can't do the Krispy Kremes, I love them too much...and we can't bring enough. I can't eat just one either. My record in one sitting (I was still going strong but we ran out of donuts) was 22. That was just eating one after another after another, not sure what the total time on that was. Maybe they will have a KK eating contest...I may have a chance!

sunflower seeds, water and a few slim fast bars...but the already shelled sunflower seeds...the worst is trying to dump out a cup of sunflower seeds at 6,500' in a 152..........just don't do it.

A cup of dip spit can get pretty nasty also.

flew with a guy a few weeks ago...always has his "spit bottle"...so he pulled out a bottle and I assumed all was normal, opens it up....it smelled like he pulled mud or "punched a grumpy" or whatever....right then and there. He later tells me he has had that bottle in his flight case for a year.....nasty nasty stuff.

dunno
used to make my own trail mix,

go to the bulk section of the local grocery store, load a bag up with nut mix (walnut, almond, macamadamia, cashew, brazils, pecans)
dried; banana, papaya, mango, coconut, dates (but no friggin raisins, hate raisins, which is why i was making mix instead of buying it prebagged, not to mention it was cheaper, raisins, feh!)
chocolate chips (white/regular/peanutbutter) or mm's

and one of those 'camel paks' half filled with ice, topped off with water

now, i carry a fair selection of lo-carb meal bars, handy and fairly price effective compared to airport food, granted not as tasty as my old mix bag of stuff, but it does the job

I really like that idea, we use those all the time in the desert, never thought about using for flying

A sack full of Whoppers (the burgers, not the malt ball candies). One for each hour of flight.

I find that a bag of Funions really stinks up the cockpit if you really want to tick someone off.

I believe the question was what kind of FOOD do you bring. Funyuns (spelled correctly, by the way) do not qualify as food.;)

I see you must be a larger consumer of the fake onion rings than I, because I couldn't remember how to spell it, but I remember how bad it smelled in the plane when I broke a bag out---about 10 years ago!!! Some things are just hard to forget.
