Emirates, the renowned Dubai-based airline, is taking its inflight dining experience to new heights by extending its inflight meal preordering service to European routes. Following a successful debut on UK flights and enthusiastic feedback from passengers, Emirates is now bringing this innovative service to travelers flying to and from several European cities. These cities include Warsaw, Venice, Rome, Bologna, Prague, Vienna, Moscow, Istanbul, Dublin, Hamburg, St. Petersburg, Brussels, and Madrid. Additionally, the service is available for flights connecting Seychelles and Mauritius.
The expansion of this initiative demonstrates Emirates’ commitment to enhancing the passenger experience while also addressing sustainability concerns by minimizing food wastage.
Passengers traveling in Emirates’ Business Class now have the privilege to preselect their main course, allowing them to secure their preferred meal choice anytime between 14 days and 24 hours prior to their flight departure.
This unique service enables passengers to indulge in a culinary journey inspired by regional flavors and crafted with locally sourced ingredients. The airline has curated a diverse menu that can be previewed on Emirates’ official website or through the Emirates app. These delectable offerings can be chosen up to two weeks ahead of the scheduled flight.
Some of the sumptuous Business Class meal options include chocolate hazelnut pancakes with apricot compote and ricotta sour cream for breakfast, beef tenderloin with thyme jus, roasted potato wedges, and steamed vegetables for lunch, and pan-fried salmon trout with saffron cream, blanched green beans, braised beetroot, and polenta with spring onions for dinner.
Once onboard, Emirates’ cabin crew will utilize digital devices to access passengers’ preordered selections, ensuring a seamless and personalized dining experience.
This meal preordering initiative is an addition to Emirates’ existing suite of innovative services, including AI-enabled customer preference tracking data and cabin crew reports that assist with menu planning and food load optimization while minimizing waste.
Emirates has been at the forefront of digitally enabled journeys and innovations in the airline industry. The meal-preordering service aligns with the airline’s broader focus on enhancing the passenger experience through digital solutions.
