Rant on...Airline Time ShiftsRants
This rant is the 7th installment of the Rant On... series, which will be featured regularly - by which I mean whenever I feel like ranting. Post any suggestions for future rants in the comments.
If you've ever been on an international flight that required a stopover and a change in time zones, you've likely experienced this. Airlines decide that when you head to a destination in a different time zone, they should provide you with meals according to that time zone...even on a 9-hour flight. But what happens if that's not your final stop? Well now they're giving you meals that are no longer on the schedule you're used to, but also not on the schedule you need to get used to either.

Well, in the case of the flight from Chicago to India with a stopover in London, this is exactly what happened. Towards the end of the flight I was hungry for dinner, as it was around that time in Chicago. India is on an 11.5 hour time difference, so it would have been early morning there. But in London, it was the middle of the night, so there's no meal. And then later when I'm tired they're trying to serve me breakfast.

Sure, the meals make sense to anyone headed to London, but anyone with any other destination is getting totally thrown off. As if jet lag and sleep problems weren't enough already.
