In Flight Sales and Food Supply
Some people never order airplane meals so the airline supply management specialists must estimate how many snacks and drinks they onboard to deliver to food eaters without being wasteful.
The idea is to predict the demand for food items in the flight.
Benefits for the company
While food isn’t expensive, every cargo load costs money, and airlines throw food items in the trash after each flight, such a mistake cost the carrier millions of dollars.
