Healthiest airline food on Air Canada, Virgin America (survey, North America)

Air Canada and Virgin America offer the healthiest in-flight food, a new nutritional survey shows. The survey of 10 North American airlines? menus reveals an overall small increase in healthy and low-calorie food choices since last year, says Charles Stuart Platkin, an assistant professor at CUNY School of Public Health at Hunter College in New York who has assessed airline food?s nutritional value in six annual surveys. But too many unhealthy items still dominate many airline menus, says Platkin.
