you a bit about general special meals and about their catering services in general catering is very important part of aviation business and quite interesting part of it as well there is a lot going on behind the scenes I've heard that quite many people believe that the food served on plane is not healthy because of the high amount of sodium added to it they say it's because when we are in the air and the pressure is lower than on the ground our ability to feel the taste decreases and that's why we need extra sodium to make the food taste normal is it true or is it false I asked the staff working in a company that supplies Airlines life in the red thomascook monarch and Thompson and if you'll stay with me to the end of this video you will know the answer there are certain regulations in companies that produce muse for airline catering can start preparing meals not longer than 24 hours before the flight all the meals that come from the aircraft doesn't matter if they were opened or not they all have to go to the bin and a lot of good food unfortunately is being wasted but it's also safety reasons there are separate rooms to

prepare meals for European airlines and there are separate rooms for Middle Eastern Airlines it's because food for Middle Eastern Airlines is hollow it means that it was prepared accordingly to Muslim customers meats and it cannot be other meals there are separate dishwashers for halal orders separate rooms and separate fridges to store challah meals also the employees who are packing halal meals are wearing different color of uniform personal aircraft like a320 catering company usually sends one lorry and one van with supplies for big aircraft like a380 it's for lorries for banks to additional people to arrange the seat pockets and one flight auditor on this picture of a galley you can see containers which usually contain dry stars so tea coffee sugar mela mines and toiletries these are the events where we hit the muse and these are the new cards each meal card has faced 439 new traits these are the bar parts soda and juices are kept in separate containers in the galley this is just for the alcohols catering company except meals provide also toiletries alcohols and duty-free

anniversary or birthdays onboard of Emirates plane you can order a bottle of champagne however you have to remember that this is not included in price of your ticket so you have to pay some extra for cakes cakes for birthdays anniversaries and any other special occasions can be provided for a fee for more information on the ordering process and methods of payment you will have to contact nearest Emirates offices except special meals there's always two or three other regular choices of mutant work preparing and serving tasty food for a few hundred people above the clouds it's not an easy task because of food safety standards all the meals have to be cooked on ground there's a Buddhist fact blast chilled refrigerated and finally must survive reheating but of this would modify flavor even if it was served at the sea level time to review the answer do adhesion catering companies and extra salute to the meals and does lower pressure affect our sense of taste the truth is that the chef's that cook for the aviation catering company that supplies Emirates prepared this meal exactly the same way as they will be

served on ground there is nothing extra added to these meals to strengthen taste during flight and the same I heard from the companies who supplied Reiner and lt Polish Airlines however tons of other airlines like Singapore Airlines admit that they had some extra spices so their meals taste better during flight studies conducted in Germany by the Fraunhofer Institute for building physics test demonstrated that our sense of taste decreases by about 30% at high altitudes interestingly the study found that we take leave on our sweet and salty senses only sour bitter and spicy flavors are almost unaffected psychologists are now finding that even your ears can play a part in taste perception result of the test say that people eating to the sound of the love background noise rated food as less salty and less than people who are eating in silence in my case it doesn't really work this way as I very often take my own food on board the same food that I usually eat on ground so I've never really noticed this food to taste any different or weird on board so I think it's one of these questions without clear yes or no
