Emirates has ambitious plans to imagine more of the in-flight dining experience via its new investment, with some options available starting this month. Not only is the airline upgrading 120 aircraft with newly designed interiors so that customers can comfortably enjoy the 5,000 channels of the in-flight entertainment system, but it is also introducing newly created menus in first class, business class and economy class. . The latter two classes will see their multi-course menus unveiled on September 1, but Emirates has announced that first-class travelers can expect new entrees like roast duck breast with orange thyme jus and seared salmon trout with moqueca sauce. The decadent luxury travel provider has also decreed unlimited servings of Persian caviar and Dom Pérignon champagne for its first-class customers. Emirates remains the only airline to carry the iconic champagne brand, thanks to an exclusive agreement.
The airline is also modernizing its supply chain through a partnership with Dubai-based Bustanica, the largest vertical farm on the planet. By Emirates, new menus have also been developed especially for vegans, including plant-based meals featuring pan-roasted king oyster mushrooms and desserts such as chocolate truffle cake with hazelnut, pistachio and leaf gold.
