(CNN) — Some of Nik Sennhauser’s earliest memories are of long-haul flights — and of eating on a plane.
“The first time I got on a plane I was about five months old,” he says.
“I grew up between Austria and Thailand, so I’d be on a plane every two to three months or so.
“It was the one place where, as a kid, I would just eat the whole meal without question.
“At home, my mom would have to force me to eat stuff, but on a plane I’d just eat whatever I was given. I remember getting on the plane and looking forward to the food.”
With family all over the world — his parents in Thailand, his sisters in the United States and Switzerland, and a brother in Spain — flying has always meant “home” to him.
“I used to spend all my free time on Google Flights, punching in dates, destinations and budgets; looking at videos of flight reports on YouTube; making my own videos as well — my whole life revolved around flying,” he says.
Until the pandemic hit.
