To combat any disappointment, a flight attendant told eShores how passengers can make sure they get their inflight meal of choice.

If you do want to bring your own food on board, Melissa suggested packing yogurts and frozen smoothies that are under 100ml as well as a mixture of sweet and savoury snacks.

She said: "Our taste buds do a number on us up in the air, and it’s always a good idea to pack both options to keep you sated.

Dark chocolate, dates, almonds and vegetarian snacks are all good options, but make sure to skip the onions and the garlic.

Meawnwhile, former flight attendant Kamila said that plane water is best to be avoided.

She added: "Bottled water would be my first choice as the water tanks don't get cleaned often due to time constraints.

"That being said, over my flying career I drank countless cups of tea and coffee when I needed a caffeine boost to stay up on night flights, and I never had any issues. "

One woman revealed how she always avoids eating bad food on planes.

And another tourist has explained how she uses a free airport item to get nicer meals in the air.
