Delays, cramped seating, altitude shifts and a multitude of other inconveniences usually highlight the negative side of flying but the hands down worst thing most complained about by airline passengers is the food.

Hear are three amazing eateries near long island’s MacArthur airport.
Thai Angel. Thai Angel located at 1812 Veterans Hwy. in Islandia. Thai Angel is beautiful and traditional in both its ambiance and fare.
