Vegan travel in-flight meals hit-and-miss

By Jercyl Lerin Aug 9, 2019

I decided to switch to a plant-based diet 19 months ago and gradually ease my way to going vegan. I had zero experience with vegan travel and was mostly clueless about what to expect.

And I have been doing it since. My experiences with in-flight vegan meals have been mostly hit-and-miss so far.

I would watch videos of Costa Rica and thought, yeah, I really like the lushness of the country.  I was also looking forward to all the local fruits that I would eat.

The reason for this, I was told, was that they did not have any record of my special meal request. I thought it was strange because I specifically made the request at least three weeks before my flight.
