Scheduled meals (if any) will often be timed and typed to complement the time zone of the flight's destination.  As a result, first or early servings may not match your departure time.  For flights that promise no food during meal hours, consider buying something at the airport (in the secure area); most lines will allow you to carry it on-board. Beware: the selection at airports may be poor and expensive but considerably more reasonable than what is on-board.

On-board meals for some airlines may be brought in from one of its base or hub airports rather than from a local source.  This takes considerable time.  Meals kept too long for any reason may have to be discarded due to safety.  Scheduled meals may then be limited to packaged snacks/cookies and drinks, which is not the fault of the crew.
