What do pilots eat during the flight?
What do airline pilots eat on a flight and when?
1: Do pilots eat during the flight or do they wait until they are back on the ground?
Since pilots happen to be human, their metabolism works in a similar way to yours or mine. So eat when you are hungry. On a long flight, you may be able to eat in-flight; on short flights (e.g. 30 minutes - 2 hours) you may not have enough free time to eat.
On busy days, pilots may not have enough time to eat the right meals. So they try to eat small meals that contain more food. This is described in an article on Airline Pilot Central. They also avoid heavy meals before a flight.
2: Do they get the same food served to passengers or do they bring their own meal?
Most of the time, the food served to passengers is the same as that served to pilots, even though they don't eat the exact same food. An airline pilot announced that:
... the pilot gets the first-class food and the co-pilot gets the business-class food.
