SWISS boosts meal service

Economy Class passengers on Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) are now being offered pre-ordered à la carte meals on long-haul flights from Switzerland in addition to the existing range of inflight food.

The new choices feature six meals, each selected specially to meet established passenger wishes and tastes. Options include Zurich-style sliced veal in a creamy sauce, a “Swiss Brunch” and a Japanese meal with prices from CHF29 (about £22.50) to CHF49 (£38). 

SWISS, part of the Lufthansa Group and a member of the Star Alliance, says the new meals are not intended to replace its regular Economy Class food and drinks but to offer supplementary individual options. A limited number will be available on each flight and can be ordered via the airline website.

The scheme applies to long-haul flights from Switzerland carrying a SWISS flight number, operated by the airline and departing on or after next Wednesday, 7 September. 

Meals must be ordered at least 24hr before departure. The new option is not available on SWISS services to Cairo, Tel Aviv or Shanghai.
