Spice up your next bland airplane meal by saving little condiment packets and adding spices from airport restaurants. Before you hop your next flight stop by any airport fast food joint and get all the ketchup, mustard, and salt you might need.

A savvy traveler will have pre-ordered their meal so you know what to expect and which condiments to bring. You may have a hard time getting these items during dinner on your next international flight. (These little packets are also below the TSA’s 3 oz. liquid ban.)

If you’re passing through Europe or some parts of Asia, stop by McDonald’s and try some curry ketchup, or cinnamon mustard. Not only are these flavors not available in the United States you’ll be charged extra for them outside of the airport.
