    Honestly speaking, I find the economy class food way better! First class food probably more healthier.Recommend

    I couldn’t see much of the difference except you are served Alcohol/Wine with the meal in Business class. As mentioned by Ali S, the quantity is more in economy class.

    The title of this news story doesn’t make sense. It’s just been used to attract users into this article. Most of the people won’t hate economy class just for food. It’s the comfort that all matters.Recommend
