À la carte Economy Class

SWISS is expanding its SWISS Choice product for its inflight guests.
Travellers in Economy Class on long-haul flights from Switzerland can now pre-order an à la carte lunch or dinner.

The new choices extend to six different meals, each of which has been specially selected to meet established customer wishes and tastes. The new à la carte options comprise Zürcher Kalbsgeschnetzeltes (traditional Zurich-style sliced veal in a creamy sauce), a Swiss Brunch, a platter of Swiss cold cuts and cheeses, a light-dining option, a gourmet selection and a Japanese meal. The prices for these vary between CHF29 (£23) and CHF49 (£40). The customer can also opt for a half-bottle of Californian Chardonnay or Italian Sangiovese to accompany the meal.

The new à la carte meals are not intended to replace the airline’s regular Economy Class food and drinks but to offer supplementary individual options to customers’ requirements.

A limited number of such à la carte meals will be available per leg. The new meals can be ordered for most long-haul flights from Geneva and Zurich. All such meals must be ordered in advance, at least 24hr before departure.
