54. You heard right
"I read/heard that one airline is about to start CHARGING extra for in-flight meals. I remember when it was included on any flight that was in the air during a "traditional" meal time."

That's good old Northwest, affectionately known as "Northworst" to its many un-fans in the MSP base. Its New York-Minneapolis runs, which I flew frequently in the 1970s, were at the bottom of the quality heap even then, although they would seem luxurious today. Its meals were already low-end TV dinner quality, and the flight attendants were crabby.

They brought out decent food and nice flight attendants only for the routes where they had competition, such as Los Angeles to Honolulu.

By 2000, they were serving tiny little trays of cheese-free mac and cheese. That's when I started buying a sub in the terminal and taking it on board. I haven't flow them internationally since 1987, but I hear that they no longer worry much about service on any route.
