In a bid to make the dining experience more enjoyable, TurkishAirlines are offering their premium and business class customers the option to view the menu and book their dishes a week ahead of their flight. In addition, travellers no longer shackled to the schedule of the flight, they can decide when they would like to take their meals - “at any time they wish during the flight”.
In October 2018 Singapore Airlines launched the longest non-stop flight in the world between Singapore and New York. At 18 hours and 45 minutes, it is a journey that will undoubtedly bring issues such as fatigue and jet lag to travellers. To counter the effects of the long journey, Singapore Airlines teamed up with wellness brand Canyon Ranch to create a menu of dishes that not just serves as fuel for these ultra-long haul fliers, but also helps them thrive with hydrating meals, stress busting snacks as well as lighting.
Many travellers have no idea how their food is made so Emirate Airlines is giving them the opportunity to see behind the scene show their seasonal menus are made by their in-house gourmet chefs. Passengers are offered a selection of channels to watch whilst dining to learn about things like their ingredient sourcing but also able to take away tutorials and recipes that make up the 110 million meals Emirates makes a year.
