This Carbo-Loaded In-Flight Meal Is Only Served to Men

By: Lawrence Bonk

In-flight meals are not exactly renowned for their, uh, flavor. They tend to be edible, and that's about all you can say about that. They also tend to be on the small side — hearty eaters know to hit the airport Sbarro before the flight. However, one Asian airline has just unveiled a veritable in-flight feast, and it's gender-specific to boot!

Garuda International has just rolled out their “In-flight Full Power Charge ★ Men’s Meal Garuda: Naniwa Special Lunch Fried Rice, Yakisoba, Fried Chicken.” Yes, that star was intended. This lengthily titled meal features so many carbs that you'll be forced to join your own mile-high club, which in this case means falling asleep and missing your connection. It has a loaf of bread, a mound of shrimp fried rice and a pile of fried chicken (just for the heck of it).

Oh yeah. This feast is inexplicably served only to men. I guess that extra Y chromosome is needed to tackle all of that Full Power Charge.
