Passengers on European routes are the first to experience a new on-board dining programme introduced by Qatar Airways for its premium customers, with new menus, cutlery and chinaware.
The airline has also put a greater focus on regional food with the inclusion of new signature dishes to the in-flight menu based on route destinations, such as porcini and truffle risotto on Italian sectors.
In addition, traditionally-prepared Arabic main dishes such as kabsa, biryani and flame-grilled meats will feature as a choice option across most routes to offer a taste of the Middle East.
In the Business Class cabin, new signature warm desserts are being introduced in addition to a luxury “afternoon tea experience” on board selected routes.
Special features of the new approach include mini-condiment grinders dispensing ground black peppercorns and Himalayan pink salt and linen-lined bread baskets housing a freshly-baked trio of bread.
Developments in First Class include treats such as an enhanced caviar service accompanied by a special salmon dish showcased on a bespoke crystal plate.
The new options follow Qatar Airways’ launch last year of its pre-select dining plan enabling First and Business Class passengers to choose meals from 14 days in advance and up to 24hr before take-off.
