Air Fare

In-flight meals may not taste good, but at least you can order a health platter that's good for you, right? Uh, maybe not. A doctors' group asked airlines for a sample of their vegetarian dishes. The worst had 31% to 39% fat, not as good as skinless baked chicken (around 25%)--and almost as bad as beef (40% to 50%). Lowest-ranked Northwest's Bombay curry is fried in fatty vegetable oil, the docs say. Northwest insists it has less-fatty dishes and denies it submitted any dishes for the test. For those who prize their arteries, United Airlines triumphs for its soy-based vegetarian steak.
