food to bring on a long plane trip

Tom Meg | Jan 16, 2005 02:19 PM

Sorry, I've started threads on this topic before, but I'm always interested in new ideas for what kinds of foods people pack for long plane trips.

Qualities that foods in my air-picnic basket should have:
--not too messy (can be eaten with fingers or chopsticks)
--not smelly
--not flatulence inducing
--must satisfy the various cravings that might arise (sweet, salty, refreshing, crunchy...)

Any other qualities I'm forgetting?

Items that have been particularly successful:

Clementines, firm cheese, nuts, dried fruit, jerky, cookies, chocolate, apples, salads, sushi...

Any other favorites?
