Ok, so you’re probably not going to find maggots in your sandwich or be forced to live in a terminal a la Tom Hanks.

But there is a wee chance that these sticky scenarios could potentially present themselves at any moment during your next vacation, so you should be prepared to make a decision if/when they do.

Ready? Let’s play a little game of travel-themed “Would You Rather.”

WOULD YOU RATHER...
learn your airplane has run out of water OR been delayed for two hours?

WOULD YOU RATHER...
find a cluster of maggots in your sandwich at the airport OR a needle in your sandwich on the plane?

WOULD YOU RATHER...
lose your luggage but land on time OR land 12 hours late with your luggage intact?

WOULD YOU RATHER...
realize the only track on your iPod -- aka the only one you’ve got for your entire trip -- is an audio version of the flight safety video OR Hanson’s “MMMBop?”

WOULD YOU RATHER...
get banged in the knee by the drink cart every seven minutes for the entirety of your flight OR let a toddler pummel you with his sippy cup for one minute before takeoff?

WOULD YOU RATHER...
watch your lavatory door swing open during a meeting of the Mile High Club OR during an epic case of in-flight diarrhea?

WOULD YOU RATHER...
subsist on only airplane pretzels for an entire week OR swallow one shot glass of water from the airplane toilet?

WOULD YOU RATHER...
ride the parking shuttle in circles for six hours OR ride sitting on the luggage carousel for 16 hours?

WOULD YOU RATHER...
breathe out of those drop-down emergency masks for your entire flight OR sit under vents whose air is 80% certain to carry the pneumonia germ?

WOULD YOU RATHER...
sit in a first-class window seat with a view of Tahitian islands OR a last-row aisle seat with a view of Ryan Gosling’s back-of-head in front of you?

WOULD YOU RATHER...
have in-flight WiFi but no legroom (like, ZERO inches) OR in-flight legroom but no WiFi?

WOULD YOU RATHER...
take control of the airplane for five minutes (it’s on autopilot, but still…) OR take control of beverage service for the entire trip?

WOULD YOU RATHER...
live in an airport terminal for a month (there is NO McDonald’s) or on an Airbus A320 for a week (there is NO cell service)?

Best of luck with your decisions, travelers!

  • Singapore Airlines

    <a href="http://singaporeair.com" target="_hplink">Singapore Airlines</a> promises in-flight food worthy of the golden days of travel. The airline sells its own cookbook, "Above and Beyond," which features recipes by its own consulting celebrity chefs, including TV's "MasterChef" Gordon Ramsay. Meals include the crab curry patta, an infusion of coconut and mint chutney with pot-au-feu beef, for some delicious, beefy, crabby goodness. <a href="http://http://www.yelp.com/user_details?userid=8S8C4fvLm05HoKhbuiiHBw" target="_hplink">One Yelp reviewer</a> gave the airline high praise: "Passengers were fed an entire three meals within each flight, with the meals being so sumptuous that, by the 2nd mealtime, I was unable to finish all of my food." <strong>Rating: 5</strong> <em><a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/dongkwan/261599031/" target="_hplink">Photo</a></em>

  • Virgin Atlantic

    The menu for <a href="http://http://www.virgin-atlantic.com/gb/en/the-virgin-experience/upperclass.html" target="_hplink">Upper Class</a> passengers at Virgin Atlantic provides an enjoyable dining experience for fliers who are willing to pay a little extra. Entrees include traditional lamb and rosemary pie with dill-infused mashed potatoes, roasted carrots and cabbage, as well as the oven-baked cod with a sun-dried tomato and basil pesto, served with roasted new potatoes, wilted baby spinach and red onion and Dijon salsa (pictured). <strong>Rating: 4</strong> <em><a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/nikonvscanon/4486839484/" target="_hplink">Photo</a></em>

  • American Airlines

    In addition to serving its own food, <a href="http://www.aa.com/i18n/travelInformation/duringFlight/dining/dining.jsp?anchorLocation=DirectURL&title=dining" target="_hplink">American Airlines</a> offers Boston Market sandwiches -- like a chicken sandwich made with all-natural white meat chicken, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato and Dijon-mayonnaise on an artisan roll with chips -- on flights more than three hours long. Early risers can choose from a roasted turkey and cheddar cheese sandwich, a breakfast snack tray (bagel chips, cheese spread, craisins, almonds) and a breakfast biscuit with turkey, cheddar cheese and a sliced tomato. Transcontinental fliers can pass the time while enjoying a lamb shank with tomato sauce or lasagna with mushrooms and sausage. <strong>Rating: 3</strong> <em><a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/wordridden/3385888188/" target="_hplink">Photo</a></em>

  • Air Canada

    According to <a href="http://http://www.airlinequality.com/Forum/air_can.htm" target="_hplink">a reviewer on Skytrax</a>, Air Canada's food is "overly salty, greasy and overcooked," with menus that feel uninspired and overall just plain sad. What's even more alarming is that one person <a href="http://http://tmagazine.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/01/30/feedback-the-worst-in-flight-meal-ever/" target="_hplink">commented on <em>The New York Times</em></a> with a horror story: "My highlight was last week, on an Air Canada flight from JFK to Calgary. I had a chicken sandwich, when I bit on something that I first thought was a bone. It turned out to be a staple. I was just glad it was me and not my four-year old who had to experience this." <strong>Rating: 1</strong> <em><a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/kalleboo/5797109515/" target="_hplink">Photo</a></em>

  • Aeroflot

    "The food was gross," according to <a href="http://http://www.yelp.com/biz/aeroflot-russian-international-airlines-beverly-hills" target="_hplink">one Aeroflot customer</a>. However, the airline <a href="http://http://www.russianaviation.org/index.php/aeroflot/846-aeroflot-in-top-5-ranking-best-cuisine-on-board" target="_hplink">ranked fourth</a> for in-flight meals, according to a recent survey by international flight comparison site Skyscanner, so there's some debate as to the quality of the grub. The main dish served on the flight to Washington sounds tasty: marinated grilled beef medallions with roasted sweet peppers and carrots, served with Madeira sauce. <strong>Rating: 3</strong> <em><a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/saschapohflepp/974486388/" target="_hplink">Photo</a></em>

  • Alitalia

    Rack of lamb in a hazelnut crust. Perch fillet with sage sauce. Swordfish rolls with Pantelleria capers. <a href="http://http://www.alitalia.com/US_EN/your_travel/class_services/magnifica_business/index.aspx" target="_hplink">The menu</a> sounds good, but words can be deceiving. One reviewer on Skytrax.com was less than pleased: "The menu sounded fantastic and the crew did their best to offer good service, however, that did not make up for the poor quality of the meal, which was cold and tasteless." Despite its award for the "Best Airline Cuisine" by the American monthly Global Traveler, Alitalia's food doesn't live up to its reputation. <strong>Rating: 2</strong> <em><a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/conbon/408939346/" target="_hplink">Photo</a></em>

  • United/Continental

    An airline's ability to offer alternative meals, such as vegetarian options, can play a critical role in whether the food is a cut above the rest. Continental doesn't appear to deliver in this category: It "offers vegetarians...a slab of unflavored tofu sitting on top of lima beans and corn...for breakfast!!! Awful...just awful," according to <a href="http://http://tmagazine.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/01/30/feedback-the-worst-in-flight-meal-ever/" target="_hplink">one reviewer on The New York Times</a>. It's also hard to provide fliers with decent seafood, so we question <a href="http://http://www.continental.com/web/en-US/content/travel/inflight/businessfirst/menu/iahgru.aspx?menuMonth=201201" target="_hplink">Continental's offering</a> of "pan-seared turbot fish and grilled shrimp with lobster Newburg sauce." <strong>Rating: 1</strong> <em><a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/brettlider/186484346/" target="_hplink">Photo</a></em>
