Box lunches of fried chicken and apples were handed to passengers as they boarded or were distributed in flight by the co-pilot before the hiring of stewards and stewardesses. With the introduction of the Douglas DC-3 in 1936 came one of the first airliners designed with a galley to handle onboard food preparation, which allowed for more elaborate meals.
