(TRAVPR.COM) UK - January 29th, 2020 - [LONDON, UK, 29 JANUARY 2020)

The Inflight Food Trip. One of the world's first airline food documentary series has been released on Amazon Prime.

Nik Loukas, the man behind the famed @inflightfeed Instagram account, came up with the idea to create a series of short stories about airline food back in 2015. After some research he teamed up with James Mellor from Rainbow Trout Films; together they created Inflight Food Films.

They first travelled to Riga and Tokyo spending time with Air Baltic and Scandinavian airline SAS back in 2016. Their crowdsourcing campaign on Indiegogo was successful, and the filming took place over the next two years, circumnavigating the globe with several airlines.

“The filming was a challenge because we often found ourselves with limited time at airports, boarding flights and getting all the footage we needed. I love the fact that we cover a variety of airlines from around the world” says James from Rainbow Trout Films.

“I was shocked when we raised funds, and couldn't believe we were given this opportunity thanks to our backers” states Nik.

The documentary follows Nik around the globe, as he visits airlines and inflight caterers to get the back story on how airline food is created. Together with James, they visited Paris, Vienna, Athens, Riga, New York, Guangzhou, Istanbul and Tokyo. Filming took place between December 2016 and finished in July of 2017. James then went on to film with Professors, Educators and Specialists within the aviation field. Post-production was then completed in Halifax, the UK in December 2019.

The stars of the show are the airlines who all present various stories and a unique perspective on food in the air to the viewers. You will discover what planning goes into your meal and get a feel of what it’s like to mass-produce food that is suitable for the air. Learn some of the science behind the taste of airplane food and see how even the lights can make a difference.

The series appeals to audiences who love travel, food and culture and has something for everyone.

We give you behind the scenes access to some great airlines and their kitchens. Learn about First Class flight attendant food training with Swiss Airlines in Zurich and get your taste buds going with Air France economy class pre-order upgrade meals. See how SAS creates a fusion of culture between Japan and Denmark with their nominated caterer in Tokyo. Find out how Air Baltic revolutionised your choice of inflight meal, so you get exactly what you want. Did you know that Turkish Airlines creates some of the tastiest inflight meals (even in economy class)

And finally zip around the globe with China Southern Airlines as we get to see meals prepared in China, then jet over to New York for a food tasting competition at a famed New York restaurant.

The six-part series is now available on Amazon Prime, and it’s due to launch on other platforms in the coming weeks.
