You might think that all airplane food tastes like plastic packaging, but good news: In a twist of fate, you can now eat airline packaging that actually tastes like food. Because it is food—at least when you fly Air New Zealand.
The airline has partnered with New Zealand-based, family-owned company Twiice to trial its edible biscotti coffee cups
as part of an effort to further reduce in-flight waste. While the airline’s current cups are compostable, the ultimate goal is to remove them from landfills completely, according to Air New Zealand senior manager for customer experience Niki Chave.
Making them edible could be one way to do so, sending the eight million coffee cups the airline serves per year straight into our stomachs rather than the garbage.
