    Depends on the airline, as well as which class you're sitting in.

    Depends on airline, which class ticket you have. Other than first class very few airlines give free meals on domestic flights (speaking US as some Asian airlines give a drink and sandwich on 45 minute flights or coffee and a pastry if its an early morning flight)

    Generally you're given meals on overseas flights and can purchase something to eat on other flights under normal circumstances.

    There is no law on airlines having to provide you meals.  You're free to bring your own.  US Domestic flights haven't had real meals in years.  (I haven't been server one in 15 years at least.  I've bought sandwiches offered, but that is different.)  Those are up to 5 hours.  It's more of a 'perk' than anything else (along with making sure you don't have overly hungry/irritable passengers to deal with.)

    Most places is 4 hours and some are 5 hours

    It all depends on the airline.  The average is 5+ hours.  However, budget airlines will most likely make you pay extra.
