In order to make travel easier for those customers in a hurry, Lufthansa has now developed a smart solution called "Delights to Go".
The new catering option will initially be tested at Munich Airport for six months starting on 5 September. Centrally located in Terminal 2 near Gate G19, Lufthansa passengers with lounge access can now enjoy high-quality snacks and drinks in a designated self-service area. Using the boarding pass the guest can select one of three connoisseur boxes from the categories listed on the screen.
The categories include Classic (main component, for example, a tuna wrap or Greek salad), Balance (for example a sprout sandwich with pear and fig mustard or a quinoa ginger salad) or Local (for example Munich sausage salad). These are complemented by a sweet or savoury snack, a piece of fresh fruit and a small bottle of water.
Once the category is selected the box slides into the output compartment directly under the monitor. The guest has the choice between a coffee, speciality, tea, water and a variety of juices. When the drink is designated the cup can be put into a built-in place holder in the box, the entire meal packed into a paper bag and the passengers can rush to the departure gate.
