Neat. I'll be using it but I'm an EasyJet kind of traveller so booking
meals doesn't figure into the equation :)
I'm still in two minds about the Wordnet thing in general. I think
having nouns and adjectives to point at is incredibly useful, I just
get wound up by some of the arbitrariness of Wordnet's content and
relations. For example, the Vegetarian class is a subclass of
Something which appears to be a subclass of itself.

 EasyJet - ultra-low cost airline, meals and trimmings are not
included, instead you buy what you want in-flight.
