Do Pilots Eat When Onboard?
Many people wonder about the food of pilots while flying a plane. What exactly do pilots eat when on a flight, and what does this have to do with passengers?
In case of an emergency, the flight crews must eat separately to avoid being affected by food poisoning. If one pilot has chicken, for example, the co-pilot may select fish or beef instead. This is the standard procedure, but not all airlines adhere to it since some pilots consume the same meal as passengers. There is a table with an eating space right in the pit.
