Shouldn't be surprised to see the third menu item given that Tony Fernandes is both Air Asia CEO and Team Principal of Caterham F1.  Pretty timely as the Malaysian GP is scheduled for this coming weekend. GG will appreciate the tie-in. :)

Unless the portion size is minuscule those prices are very good.

Sorry I couldn't figure out how to embed the pictures.  The don't look particularly gourmet or large.  I just thought it was interesting that Air Asia, a regional budget airline, offers so many choices available through this nifty pre-ordering scheme when you buy your ticket, for a flight just (in my case) 2-1/2 hours long.  Yet you fly a giant airline like Delta from Atlanta to California and (in Economy) are offered only an on-board choice of a few sandwiches and snack plates.  The higher prices in the US are to be expected (e.g., Delta sandwich/wrap for $8.50), but it would be great if more airlines would get with the technology and offer this kind of pre-ordering.

When I flew out to California a couple weeks ago, I saw that Delta is now testing pre-ordering meals on some flights from California to NY. Maybe if it goes well they will roll it out to more cities.
