There are a few key components to a successful flight: good entertainment, a considerate seatmate, and satisfying food. If you're a frequent traveler, you likely know what you can eat on different airlines. But what about global airline food? Can you expect to taste international cuisine on a flight to China, or some local specialties on a quick hop through Europe?

Airplane food around the world isn't all that unfamiliar. Fly Air France, and you'll dine on panini and pasta. Take a ride on Japan Airlines, and you'll feast on miso soup and fish. Some airlines go above and beyond with gourmet cuisine in the sky – just look at the spread from Air Emirates, which includes braised lamb.

Tuck into these snapshots of airplane meals from around the globe, and start planning your next vacation.
