    we are embarking friday on 16 total hours to travel. Anyone want to share any reasonably easy recipes that will do well in a backpack with books, notebooks ect for 16 hrs. I'm traveling with someone who hungry = cranky.

    Pretzels, cheese nips or chex mix if you like salty & crunchy, or nuts or sunflower seeds - my husband's standard travel snacks include raisenets & gummy bears - he has a sweet tooth. and don't forget a bottle of water!

    Trail mix with nuts and beef jerky. Protein is always more satisfying. I love almonds.

    Quote:On a flight to Santiago Chile I took sliced fennel salami, cashews, cheese wafers (my recipe is here), homemade biscotti (recipe is also here) and some oil cured olives. 6 hours to Miami and 8 to Santiago. On the Miami to Santiago leg I gave some cheese wafers and biscotti to the flight attendants and next thing ya know I'm being given a choice of what was being served in First Class... Most flight attendants aren't used to passengers giving them good treats. At SFO airport on flights to Newark NJ I would buy some California Rolls at the airport - those really hit the spot.

    Do remember to be considerate of your fellow passengers & not pack anything strong smelling (no garlic or limburger [​IMG])

    Some flights won't allow fresh fruit, but you can carry on a wrap or sandwich that contains it - peanut butter & banana or apple.

    Mike has the secret to the COMP Upgrade (if such a thing exists anymore):
    Take a treat to the desk agent when you ask - buy a cake or some cookies and tell them you don't want to carry on these things & BTW would they like them?
    These agents usually get the rough edge of everyone's tongue & appreciate some courtesy.
    Sharing with the flight attendants will certainly get you some perks too.

    I smoke cigars, Cuban cigars. So if I am going some place sort of swank on a special occasion I take one of my Cohibas and pack it in a little zippered bag. We get a man waiter as soon as he greets us I quietly ask him if he ever smokes cigars - most young men do from time to time. I slip him the Cohiba and tell him to enjoy it at the end of his shift. Usually that guarantees not only great service but some comped dessert from the pastry station. Service employees have a rough life - the pay is lousy, sometimes the biggest tables (families with children) are the lousiest tippers and most days they barely get by. The gratuity goes a long way - and flight attendants, geez talk about a life... I'm 64, I remember flying a lot as a little kid - back then you wore your Sunday Best when you flew (remember what Sunday Best were ??) and never would dream of making a lot of noise or misbehaving. Nowadays people feel so "entitled" and have little regard for their fellow passengers or the flight crew. Being polite or exceptionally nice to the flight attendants really makes their day - doesn't guarantee you're gonna get comped something from First Class but why not be a good person just because ??
