Supermodel Chrissy Teigen Wants To Plan Your Next Airline Meal – And That Would Be Awesome

Supermodel Chrissy Teigen is a total frequent flyer geek.

Last year she even broke news about a flight turning back around to LAX due to a security issue when she and her husband John Legend were enroute to Tokyo. She’s even brunched with Chase Sapphire cardholders.

Chrissy Teigen is a cookbook author, and if there’s two things she has (really quite well-informed) opinions of it’s airlines and food. So she shared this take with her 10+ million twitter followers:

Clearly she has proper taste:

And here’s when it occurs to her — she’s a celebrity, why shouldn’t an airline partner with her on their menu?

Airlines seem game:

And the internet is all for it.

The question is, which carrier will be forward-thinking enough to engage Chrissy Teigen to design their inflight menu? Because that would be amazeballs.

I loved it when Melissa Joan Hart followed me on Twitter, but I’m truly jealous of Lucky from One Mile at a Time because this week Chrissy Teigen used the medium to react to his American Airlines lobster roll

  1. As a picky eater, the airlines try to infuse all their food with a bunch of weird sauces and spices and what not. Why try and make things so exotic? You can’t.

    I would love a plain beef/fish/chicken option, but I will never see it.

  2. I don’t need anyone telling me what is good and what is not. I had the best shrimp I ever consumed on a TWA flight in First to Paris. And WR I agree what is the big deal?

  3. The hate is strong with some commenters. In all honesty would rather have a chef curate the menus, rather than a supermodel.

  4. Supermodels are Supermodels because an entire three course lunch for them consists of 2 peas, half a french fry and half a cup of Super ColonBlow smoothie mix. I prefer something a bit more substantial.

    Let’s leave the menus to the professional chefs.
