Feast time on airberlin

Competition among carriers over inflight food moved up another notch on Wednesday after airberlin extended its "airgusto" restaurant service to all long-haul flights from Dusseldorf and for the first time on flights from New York and Abu Dhabi.

The airline introduced the concept on long-haul flights from Berlin last October, giving passengers in Economy Class the chance to choose from a selection of more than 20 different meals from 17 trendy local restaurants.

The food is prepared by specialist in-flight chefs using the restaurants’ original recipes to make certain the taste and texture of the food is just as impressive in the air as it would be in the restaurants in Berlin, Dusseldorf, New York or Abu Dhabi.

Participants include Menta Cucina Italiana, promising to add Italian flair to in-flight dining, and Restaurant Seoul for passengers seeking authentic Korean cuisine on flights from Dusseldorf.

Passengers on flights departing from New York are offered American burger from Burger Joint or a Mac&Cheese from Macbar, while Circo and Byblos provide Tuscan and Lebanese delicacies on flights from Abu Dhabi. Prices for the three-course meals range from €19 to €39.
