Arrow Foods that are good to pack for traveling?

I've got a 7 hour plane trip coming up for a family reunion, and and I want to take something with me.
I'm already making cookies and brownies, Can you guys come up with something else (doesnt have to be sweets) that would be easy to pack for a plane trip.

Thanks

We typically take all or some of the following depending on where we're going and how long we'll be gone: bars (granola/protien), homemade trail mix (M&Ms, peanuts, animal crackers, raisons & pretzels), store bought trail mix, homemade chex mix, tuna/salmon pouches, anything in individual serving sizes.

I carry whatever I'm taking in a large tote bag.

pasta salads
sandwiches from your favorite sub shop
cold fried chicken

just make sure it's nothing too garlicky or oniony - esp if you're stuck for a few hours. Your seat mates might hate you, lol.

I always make cold tacos.
I use a cooked chicken & shred meat. Fill taco sized flour tortillas with chicken(I use low carb mission brand) and add cheese.
Pack a little salsa in a baggie or small throw away dish and add before serving.

super good for an alternative to a sandwich.
