    International flights leave DIA from concourse A. If you are interested in bringing something onboard, there are lots of fast food, sub sand places, etc along the concourse. You have the hassle of babysitting the food bags till you eat, but you might eliminate the need for carrying on a lot of snack foods, especially on the flight over when the bulk of the flight time is night. You can google DIA for a list of all the food places on concourse A.

    I did mild cheese I could spread on baguette slices; carrots, celery, with a dip. You can get small containers; and some even come in small containers. caramel dip with apple slices are good. Cereal, of course granola bars and the chocolately breakfast bars are sweet but still fillings. And sandwiches are good with a basic, cheese, lettuce, tomato toppings; bacon also holds up very well. Steal a couple of packets of mayo, mustard from a fast food restaurant ... They are perfect to add in flight and won't spoil like regular mayo.

    I like the instant noodles ... just ask for tea water and you can have instant soup. Pasta salad can be room temp with a simple vinaigrette, chick peas, olives, celery, onion etc and really filling.

    Stay away from peanut butter, tuna, chicken salads, anything too strong. A home made granola or chex mix is nice.
    Ham and cheese rolls are good and they can be kept very cold, then wrapped in foil and they usually hold up well. Especially the party wraps with the tortilla. They can almost be frozen first.

    I know, most or all of these items work well. Keep in small containers, small bags and nothing concealed. I have a small lunch bag which is soft which I carry almost as a purse.

    I no longer carry a purse on the plane. I keep my lipstick, brush, only necessary ID, and money ... I put that in my shoe for safety. My purse, I put on my carry on or suitcase. So, I end up with a carry on, and a small cooler which has a side pocket for an ipod, brush, change, etc.clean whipes, kleenex, asprin, etc. It is easy and safe. If it get stolen or lost ... I still have money and my ID; and FOOD, lol.



    Thank you.

    I'm only taking backpacks for everyone.. that sufficed last year as a purse too at Dland, the Beach, Knott's, etc..

    I always think to try to do things we always make. Sandwiches for us with chex mix and some granola. I took an apple with caramel for sweets and some grapes. I was good. It was like a normal lunch/dinner, so it worked fine. I just stuck to my normal diet for the most part. Our 3 friends (kids) were good and the adults I did sandwiches for. The noodles I did once going to Japan.

    My husband is diabetic and we have traveled several times in airplanes, so I always prepare healthy snacks for him in a small cooler or insulated lunch box, which the security agents let him take with him.

    We choose between a variety of healthy snacks like two soft cereal bars with oatmeal and fruits, like apple-cinnamon and mix berries, a little cup of mixed fruits, small cheese cubes and low-salt Ritz crakers; a turkey, ham and cheese sandwich cut in four small portions like a club sandwich, apple slices, carrot and celery sticks and a little cup with low-fat or light whipped cream cheese. He only asks for a small glass of orange or apple juice and water in the airplane. We do the same when traveling by car in a longer trip.

    We traveled on International flights years ago when the food was free and you could select the meat choice that you preferred. icon_smile.gif

    Here's their menu.

    An Icelandic Krona (ISK) is about. 008 USD, so I figure the chicken Caesar salad runs about 12 bucks.

    Come to think of it, the price in US dollars would be constantly changing, wouldn't it?

    Actually, Iceland - going there is very cheap according to my DH..

    The stupid deviled ham and roast beef is about 5.0 oz.. so!! I bought SMALLER CANS of the deviled spam..

    their menu was sooo limited though. I think I'll go w/crackers, the tiny cups of pb, some fruit, maybe pkts of oatmeal?, veggie stix,granola type bars, cookies, etc.. oh, adding also, the cup o noodles for the guys.

    Assuming we'll all fall asleep after one movie or 2 hrs anyway. It's a night flight.
