The Titanic sank almost 104 years ago to the day, and many interesting facts have been unearthed, but while many things have changed in the world over the last century, one thing remains the same: the contrast between first class and economy.
Passengers on the Ship of Dreams were divided into first, second, and third Titanic classes. The lower classes occupied the lower part of the ship and the upper levels – you guessed it – had the top part. But the big difference was in the Titanic food. While passengers from first class were treated to Egg A L’Argenteuil, Chicken A La Maryland, Consomme Fermier and anything else that sounded remotely French, which they could choose to eat in one of the five Titanic restaurants meant for their circle. Second class passengers were left to settle for spring lamb, plum pudding and American ice-cream. Which still seems pretty good actually, especially when compared to the stewed figs, gruel, and cabin biscuits that third-class passengers had on their Titanic menu. But again, at least they got fed. Which is more than you can expect from many airlines these days. Unless you’re flying first class of course.
