Fiji Airways has unveiled a complete overhaul of its in-flight dining, with all new economy class meals and a revamp of its business class dining options.
The airline has now removed its boxed meal concept and most of its burger and wrap selections. It will replace these with a new tray service, with hot meals being offered in economy class on flights to Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific and more substantial snacks on short-haul routes, including those operated by regional carrier Fiji Link. Passengers on long-haul flights to Los Angeles and Hong Kong will be served two hot meals.
In business class, a new signature dish has been developed by Lance Seeto, executive chef of the Castaway Island Resort, which the airline says will feature “top quality Fijian produce”. This will be launched on 1 September 2014.
“As we continue to make headway towards our goal of becoming a leading global boutique airline, addressing our in-flight experience, especially the catering, has been a key priority,” said Stefan Pichler, Fiji Airways’ managing director & CEO.
“Our onboard catering, especially on the short- and medium haul sectors, attracted their fair share of negative feedback since introduction, and we have been taking it all into account. The new catering offers the choice and style of meals that our guests desire.”
The new in-flight meals form part of a major overhaul of Fiji Airways’ onboard products. This will also include changes to its in-flight entertainment, duty free and in-flight magazine.
