    Tricky. I would say at least 3 hours for meal service.. Which you may or may not have to pre-order or pay for.

    Each airline is different, plus things like time of day, length of flight and domestic vs international all factor in.  You best bet is to research in the particular airline you are interested in.

    well,  I fly back and forth between Italy and New York, often enough, and that's an 8 to 9 hour  flight......and you always get two meals. 

    From Italy to New York, it's usually an early 10 am get a lunch and dinner. 

    From New York to Italy,'s usually a 5 pm you get dinner, and then breakfast. ----and then arrive in Italy, at 10 am........due to time differences.
