Airplane Food: What's GOOD?

This topic came up on another thread and some Chowhounds named KLM and Alitalia as good airlines for the quality of food served. (I'm a KLM loyalist.) I recently flew Continental to and from Asia and found the food to be surprisingly good. Fish / meat / eggs were overcooked -- I sort of wonder if this isn't inevitable for airplane food -- but everything was actually seasoned very well. One of the appetizers, a daikon radish pastry, was legitimately excellent and we were served dragonfruit, asian pear and other fruit for dessert, along with a cheese service... followed by another dessert of Edy's ice cream with toppings and port for those who wanted it.

We hear so much about awful (or just plain non-existent) airplane food, these days. But which ones out there are good?
