Ever wanted to see how an airline caterer gets an airline meal to your seat? I spent a day with the lovely folks at Air Baltic in Riga touring their airline catering facilities and learning about the various processes that go into making your airline meal. I flew one sector in economy class to sample their pre-order meals and one sector in business class to sample their three-course meal offering.

The airline is famous for its http://airbalticmeal.com website concept which allows economy class passengers to pre-order a range of inflight meal options up to 48 hours before departure. This rather innovative system will enable passengers to choose whatever meal, drink and dessert they would like on their airline meal tray. You just pick and choose precisely what you want on your meal tray, and the meal is then served to you inflight. At their facility in Riga, their catering partner LSG makes around 4500 meals every day and the airline sells approximately 14,000 cups of coffee every month.
