It’s certainly much easier to be vegan now than it ever has been before but travelling can still sometimes be tricky.
Not only the cuisines in the different countries you travel to but also when you’re in flight.
I recently went to Mexico and flew with United and although the in flight main meal vegetarian option was luckily vegan, they didn’t actually offer specifically vegan meals and the snack options later in the flight were not vegan so had I not been prepared and stocked up on expensive airport snacks after going through security, I’d have been one hangry traveller!
Well now The Vegan Society and The Humane Society have joined forces and launched a brilliant website called Fly Ve where you can go and rate your in flight vegan meals and read other peoples reviews.
Basically like trip advisor but for plant based meals.
With such a recent rise in people switching to vegan diets, it’s really important that they’re catered for and it’s not only vegans who enjoy vegan food, I know that through my experience, since becoming vegan, many of my non vegan friends have gone for vegan options when we’ve been out together and when you’re on a long flight and you’re not actively burning calories, vegan or not, it makes sense to go for a healthy vegan option.
At the time of writing this post, the stats show that Turkish Airlines and Air New Zealand provide the best food for vegan travellers and the more people that contribute to the site, the more accurate the stats will be although in flight meals might not be the only factor to consider when booking flights, it’s definitely one to consider when deciding which airlines to fly with.
