    Food regulations on domestic flights?

    Hello guys,

    Sorry, this is probably a really obvious question, but I've never flown before, so forgive me

    I am flying from Adelaide to Sydney this Friday, and am on a very limited budget. So, in order to save money on food, I was planning on bringing a few things from home.

    Is this acceptable? Are there particular items that I cannot bring?

    EDIT: Sorry, I just realised that I think I posted this in the wrong section :S

    Thank you,
    Cheesy Puff.

    Welcome to AFF, Cheesy-Puff! I hope you enjoy your first flight
    Generally no problems in bringing food on board; when you get to SYD you may have to dispose of any food that you still have left (quarantine regulations).

    You can find a full list of what food items you can and cannot bring into New South Wales at:
    Destination New South Wales/ACT*-*Plant Standards - Department of Primary Industries
    Too little time, too many reward programs deserving of my efforts for elite status - QF SG 21% to LTS, Hilton Gold, asst. paper/plas

    Although as others have said there are no rules as such, and as commented NSW does not enforce its border rules like WA.

    However please take into consideration that you are on a small plane with other pax and for everyones comfort your food decisions should take this into account.

    Make sure the food you take is easily consumed and not likely to impact on your neighbours.

    Apart from that enjoy your first flight and welcome to AFF.

    Very good advice IMHO, in a small closed environment like an aircraft there is a lot more than just Durian that can be offensive to other guests when it comes to food.

    Re: Food regulations on domestic flights?

    ADL to SYD isn't very long, I personally wouldn't bother eating anything major. You haven't said which airline your on so if your on

    QF - You'll be given a snack \ cereal for brekky \ sandwich for lunch \ cooked dinner included for "free"

    DJ \ JQ \ TT - BYO or buy on board.

    That said, it's not an overly long flight, so maybe instead have something to eat just prior to leaving ADL and have something again when arriving in SYD, you may find it easier than trying to do anything fancy whilst onboard.

    As for foods to eat onboard, ones with low or no odour. You might love the smell of reheated fish curry, but I guarentee the people around you probably won't. Ham sandwich is probably a good one or a packet of chips. Things which won't be easily smelt by other pax.

    In any case, enjoy your first flight, you'll remember it for the rest of your life. (I've been on hundreds of flights, most of them I've forgotten about, and yet I still remember my first flight 20 years ago as if it was only yesterday)

    You think PER is bad, try HBA. Those buggers don't just sniff around the pax, they're walking up and down the baggage belt atop the luggage. They make our WAQIS beagles look like cute little puppies.

    Re: Food regulations on domestic flights?

    I interpret the OP's question not to refer to food to be eaten on the aircraft, but to be taken to the destination to save money on purchasing restaurant/takeaway meals while at the destination.

    Generally its fruit that is the biggest concern for domestic travel. Given you are likely to be able to purchase fruit reasonably easily at the destination, I would suggest not taking it, even though as other have noted NSW does not seem to enforce quarantine restrictions at SYD domestic terminals.

    Since I commute SYD-BNE almost every week I do not have time (and only have small bar fridge anyway) to go looking for quality meat and vegetables and I have also found these food items to be very expensive in the area where I live and work in Brisbane.

    So I bring with me every week any meat and fresh vegetables (most times fresh from dad's garden) that I will need that week. From what I understand there is no issue bringing any of these food items into Queensland and I pack these in my checked luggage.
