Whether they have or not, it is still an offence to eat after midday (when the sun is at its zenith).
In practice, even on long haul flights, a monk will not have long too to wait without any meals. Monks often have to wait up to 23 hours between meals anyway, so waiting for 36 hours is not especially difficult. One can take honey, boiled sweets, etc., as seven-day medicine, to appease one's hunger.
