Now boarding in the meta-on-demand category, food delivery for people waiting for planes. I’ll be at Heathrow next week, so will give Grab a try, perhaps. If I have to wait in line for my flight.
In response, a new batch of pick-up and delivery services has arrived on the scene to offer time-poor passengers an alternative to holding out for on-board plane food. In the US, two recently launched services, AirportSherpa and AtYourGate, deliver food and other retail items directly to passengers at their gate. Another similar offering, Grab, is slightly more established, operating at airports across the US and at London’s Heathrow. The service lets passengers order food in advance and collect it on the go from restaurants as they pass.
