Fact of the Day: Pilot Food

While not a universal rule, pilots are advised (or mandated by the airline) to not eat the same meal as their co-pilot(s). The reasoning is that if one pilot were to get food poisoning, the other pilot(s) would most likely be in a fine condition.

Lufthansa is an excellent and very safe conscious airline, but I doubt that the plane shown, a B737-800 or even smaller B737, was flying out of a US airport on a trans-Atlantic flight.
LH would use far bigger planes for these trans-Atlantic flights.

They should make sure the meals are made by different cooks as well.

Food poisoning on a long flight would be the WORST.

Now that’s a good idea for sure. I shall have to ask my cousin about this since he was a pilot for Hawaiian Airlines.
