We already know that Barbara Corcoran flies economy better than you, but Marissa Mullen most definitely flies JetBlue economy better than you.

Mullen is a “cheese influencer” — yes, really — and is the brains behind the Instagram @ThatCheesePlate. Side note: How does one become a cheese influencer? Need to know.

She was on a cross-country JetBlue flight on Jan. 11 and figured what better way to pass the time than to assemble a plate of cheddar, gouda and other dairy-laden products? Yeah, we can’t think of anything, either.

First things first: The “Savor Up” box. It comes with hummus, pita chips, bean dip, crackers, biscotti and pitted olives. That, complimented with the “Party Up” box — complete with popcorn, Fig Newtons, and salami slices — provided her with the most beautiful plate of airplane cheese we’ve ever seen.

She even got the flight attendants on board (literally) — they even snuck her a box with the salami!

Special shoutout to Shayla, the real MVP of the flight.

Now the real question is: Can we go swimming in the salami river?!

As far the final product? See for yourself:

Looks gouda to us.
