Airline Customizes In-Flight Meals

David De Lossy/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Air Baltic has decided to take the guess work out of your in-flight meal.

As first reported by Inflight Feed, the national airline of Latvia now allows passengers to customize their meal pre-flight. Customers choose from an online menu to design a meal they’ll love. Or at least, be able to identify. Simply drag and drop your items onto your virtual tray.

The food isn’t free, but the price of each item is clearly identified, along with nutritional information.

The service is scheduled to launch next month.

Air Baltic offers 20 pre-order meal options and four dietary meal options which include: Gluten Free, Lactose Free, Vegetarian and Kosher meals.

The catch? Passengers have to remember to order their meals at least 24 hours prior to departure. If you forget, you can still order the lasagna up to 40 minutes before departure.

In 2012, Air Baltic announced plans to let passengers pick seats based on mood. Based on your mood — say, “Business Talk” — the airline finds a suitable seatmate.
