Flight attendant tip and advice: ‘Delicious’ item at ‘high altitudes’ – ‘always order it’ | Travel News | Travel


Plane food doesn’t have the best reputation. But according to a flight attendant one item tastes “delicious” at “high altitudes”.

On Reddit, the flight attendant said: “You should try tomato juice while flying, even if you don’t normally like it.

“Science says it’s more delicious at high altitudes. Seriously, Google it.”

Tomato juice is normally available on planes although it might not be the first choice of drink for most passengers.

It’s often served with salt and pepper and occasionally passengers might choose to make a Bloody Mary with vodka.

One commenter said: “I fly a lot and have noticed this phenomenon. Once someone orders tomato juice, everyone on there orders tomato juice.

“It’s like they’ve never known it was a thing before. I’ve asked the cabin crew about it, and they said the same thing.”

Another said: “I always get tomato juice on planes and since almost no one gets it they give me the whole can.

“Please don’t ruin my secret.”


“I had tomato soup whilst on a flight, as it was the only starter option they had, and it was the best soup I’ve ever tasted.

“I didn’t understand why, but at that moment, I really didn’t care.”

However, not everyone agreed. One Reddit user said: “Tomato juice makes me vomit. It triggers a gag reflex.”

Many Reddit users said they were fans of ordering a Bloody Mary on a flight as it just tasted better than other alcoholic options.

A Bloody Mary is made with vodka, lemon juice, tomato juice, pepper, salt, tabasco and Worcestershire sauce. 

Although it is often served with celery, airline passengers might have to forgo that.
