Vegan ACT's 30 Day Go Vegan Challenge

Hi <<First Name>>! 



Kym's advice for day fourteen:
What does a vegan eat on a plane? Most airlines are up with doing vegan food, after all there are so many high-flying celebrities who are vegan and are frequent flyers! We recently had a thread on this on our SVC forum, and our members reported the following experiences: 
"Qantas has always been excellent in my opinion, and the twice I've flown Air New Zealand I've been impressed with the vegan food. In 2008 I flew Thai Airways to Italy and on both legs I had great food. Dhal with rice and veggies on one and a bean and veg casserole with mashed potatoes on another (it was the vegan, vegetarian, kosher and halal option. Lol)". - Bek

"I flew with Singapore airlines a few times, from Sydney to Singapore, and got really yum vegan meals (from memory was grilled eggplant and cous cous type thing) with a big 'VEGAN' label on the top, got it before everyone else too haha. I think we specified online when booking, and when we were seated they came found me and put a sticker on my chair so the staff knew who got the vegan food. Seemed very organised and didn't give me anything non-vegan." - Kelly

We did also have some members say that the food was terrible or that they stuffed up and brought food that was not vegan, so it would be wise to bring a few snacks just in case. Its essential that you let your airline know that you require a vegan meal in advance, so look for the option when booking online, or if you don't see on, phone the airline to ask for a vegan meal. 

Dream about (or plan) your next exotic holiday, flying over the pacific with a delicious vegan meal in your lap :-)


Now that we've covered the serious stuff, its time to move into some more lighthearted vegan entertainment!
