Qantas is stepping up its food game in lounges and onboard flights with new menus and bigger portions. And they’re using premium ingredients from Aussie producers, too.
They’ve already started rolling out new menus on domestic flights, and international flights will get the upgrade from March 29th. Expect a focus on seasonal ingredients with plant-based options in every cabin.
For domestic flights, business class is getting a boost with lighter meal options like ploughman’s and cheese plates, and yummy soups. Plus, they’re bringing back starter salads and pre-take off water and juice on longer flights.
International flights are getting a makeover, too. Economy class is getting new dishes like cajun prawns with spiced rice, Korean chilli and garlic chicken with kimchi, and black pepper beef with oyster mushrooms.
And instead of just a snack, passengers will get a second meal in all cabins on flights to Asia. In economy, these include chicken fried rice, and sage and lemon ravioli with kale and napolitana sauce.
Premium economy passengers are in for a treat with a new starter salad and ice-cream service on all flights. Their main meals are getting an upgrade, too, with dishes like salmon with tomato fennel sauce and quinoa, and braised lamb shank with red wine mushroom sauce and potato puree.
In first class, new menu options include upmarket dishes featuring calvisius caviar, Queensland spanner crab salad, crumbed margra lamb cutlets, and seared glacier 51 toothfish.
Meanwhile in international business class, gueses will enjoy seared grasslands beef fillet, free-range chicken kyiv, and seared snapper with black bean sauce.
If you’re hanging out in the Qantas lounges, get ready for some new ‘plate of the day’ options.
In International First Lounges, expect dishes like steamed blue eye with pickled daikon, and eight-hour beef brisket with potato puree, tarragon and shallot butter.
The International Business Lounges are also stepping up their game with fresh ricotta and crisp pancetta plates, and beef, bacon and dark ale pies.
Oh, and did we mention ice cream in Qantas Clubs and international and domestic Business Lounges? Yes, please!
