There's now a Kickstarter for a film about airplane food

Ever looked down at your tray table of tiny packages of bread and butter, crackers, a mini salad and perhaps something resembling chicken cacciatore and wondered how on earth plane food came to be what it is?

The writer, who has been carefully tracking in-flight food on his website, inFlightFeed, since 2012, just launched a $75,000 Kickstarter to fund a 90-minute documentary about airplane food called The Inflight Food Trip.

The film will take people behind the scenes to see how food is made for airline companies, show what it's like to eat on a private jet and dive into the almost-100-year history of this tradition (the first airline meals were served in 1919, in case you were curious).

Loukas acknowledges that not all of the food is great, but it's still impressive:
