A foodie content creator detailed her travel hack for eating well on a plane. Seema Pankhania, aka @seemagetsbaked, posted the tip to her 1.2 million followers, where it has amassed a huge 6.9 million views at the time of writing.
Seema told viewers: “If you’re flying and you hate plane food, make sure you take a pot noodle with you.” She showed how she takes a pot of instant noodles on the plane with her, ready to snack on when the inflight meal was not up to par.
The content creator asked the flight attendant to fill up her dried noodles with hot water, and the cabin crew member happily obliged. Seema then tucked in and while doing so shared another clever tip, “save your bread roll for the broth.”
Fans were impressed by the hack, with one writing: “I usually just take a sandwich but this is so smart, I never thought of that.”
“Such a smart idea! Thanks for the tip!” another said.
