There’s a new and potentially exciting trend in airline meals. A growing number of air carriers are offering a new “pre-order premium meal option” for travels in economy class. For example, US Airways has begun a pre-order meal scheme for international passengers traveling from Philadelphia and Charlotte. The “deluxe” meals are available for purchase ($19.99 with wine) on flights to 24 destinations in Europe, South America and the Middle East. There’s even a vegetarian option.
