    For those of you that are flying coach, the days of chicken or beef might finally be coming to an end. Airlines are realizing there is a market for premium meals even in the back of the plane and they're willing to take some cash and cook it up for you. But, only if you give them ample notice.

    We have told you about a few airlines that have been upgrading their menus to offer coach flyers an improved flying experience, even giving a sample of the foreign land's cuisine. Here is the rundown of the pre-order meals options, by airline, but keep in mind this is really only the start.

    · Air France might just be like a flying Cordon Bleu with meal options of a full Italian feast, a more refined organic meal option or traditional French fare. Prices range from $15 to $30.

    · KLM gives passengers the option to taste the world while flying the world. We've told you before that the Flying Dutchman offers up some fancy meals for extra cash. It just means extra gouda for everyone!

    · Scoot doesn't quite give away free food, but they do offer a pre-order meal option. We had the opportunity to sample the menu and the exotic options were tasty, but not super pretty.

    · Air Asia's laundry list of on-board meals should appeal to all tastes and desires and, if pre-ordered online, it saves some rupiah with a 15% discount. Now, the hardest decision is deciding between the pad thai or tandoori chicken.

    I still remember the days when you could choose your meal in coach from a list of several choices ahead of time. It's good to see that airlines are bringing that back even if there is a cost to it.

    I'm flying KLM in a month and was wondering if I need to order a meal in advance or only special meals. Do they offer anything on Europe flights.
