While most US legacy airlines are known for generally serving lousy in-flight meals, many airlines around the world seek to maintain a competitive edge by offering carefully prepared food to their passengers, especially in premium classes.
Air France has partnered with Michelin-starred Michel Roth to prepare recipes for on-board meals.
Singapore Airlines has partnered with Gordon Ramsay while Qatar Airways has an impressive line-up of chefs from around the world to prepare its in-flight meal menus.
Qantas offers menus prepared by Neil Perry while Japan Airlines offers Seiji Yamamoto inspired meals.
Korean Air goes as far as to run its own organic farms to ensure quality ingredients while Air New Zealand has installed on-board induction ovens on many aircraft to enable cooking of meat and fish to order.
Some airlines, such as Malaysian Airlines and Taiwan based EVA Airways, have also introduced pre-ordering in-flight meals, which ensures their passengers’ selections and allows time to plan the preparation of quality in-flight meals.
