Ever wonder what professional athletes get to eat on flights? Thanks to Seattle Seahawks punter Jon Ryan, we can now see what both his team as well as the Baltimore Orioles got to eat on Delta flights this week.
Well well well Delta I can’t help but notice that the Orioles menu looked better than ours today. I’ll remember this. pic.twitter.com/3wszqY1Y29

Ryan was of course joking on Twitter about comparing the meals, but his joke gives us a cool little glimpse into how pro sports teams travel.
Here are some of the menu highlights for each team:
- California sushi rolls
- Shrimp cocktail
- Pan-seared beef filet with bearnaise sauce
- Bison burgers
- Whole wheat blueberry pancakes with bacon (noteworthy because this was a dinner flight, and pancakes are awesome for dinner)
- Grilled Angus cheeseburgers
- Grilled beef filet with a bourbon sauce
- Klondike bars
I’m not sure why the drinks are listed on the menu for the Seahawks, since most of those are the same drinks that us commoners get for free in coach. The life of a professional athlete: not bad at all, even when you’re drinking Fresca.
What meal would you choose on these flights?
