More than 25% of the Americans still consume fast food every day, but the percentage is dropping and the high obesity rate is a major factor for the same. Among the food items that have witnessed maximum levels of growth in their sales in the past 10 years, healthy food stands upfront. Yogurt, poultry, sandwiches, fresh fruit, Mexican food are some of the foods that has witnessed a spiked demand during in-flight catering.
North American commercial aviation market will continue to remain one of the biggest and most profitable in the world but its growth rate will lag behind regions like Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa due to high penetration of the aviation sector and saturated market. But the In-flight catering will register impressive levels of growth in the market, as carriers aim to improve quality of food served on the planes. The increase in quality and cusines provided will be directly led by passenger demand to have healthier and better quality food on their flights.

Airliners, like Air Canada, discontinued the use of 48-oune cans for juices, replacing them with tetra packs to reduce the weight and volume of the SKUs. Some airliners, like British Airways, also introduced a food tray, filling same amount of food, but with half the usual size.
