KLM is now offering its customers the option to pre-order in-flight meal items online from à la carte menu options up to 24 hours before their flight’s departure time. The à la carte menu options will be available for most KLM flights departing Amsterdam.
The airline is offering five menu options – Dutch tradition, Japanese delight, Bella Italia, Cold delicacies and Indonesian rice dishes. The names pretty much describe each menu option.
For example, the Indonesian rice dishes option starts with a kohodo salad with sweet potato, coconut and lemongrass-marinated shrimp and an Asian fruit salad with sweet soy sauce.
The main dish is a Beef Rendang, a spicy Indonesian beef stew with basmati rice and sliced green beans with spicy sambal sauce. It comes with ketoprak salad with thin noodles and vegetables as side-dish and spekkoek for dessert.
The meals cost 12-15 euros ($15-$20) each.
The menu options can be chosen at the time of booking, after booking (through KLM’s website) and while checking in online (from 30-24 hours before departure) and even after.
