Michelin Stars in the Sky

AIRPLANE FOOD is famously unappetizing, but over the past few years partnerships between airlines and award-winning chefs and restaurateurs have really taken off.

As it does on land, Michelin-worthy food comes at a price—these meals are served almost exclusively in first class and business. Here’s where to find those high-flying chefs.
