American Airlines will enhance its menu offerings for flights between Chicago and Delhi, India, with new dishes that embody the fragrant, exotic flavors of India. First and Business Class passengers on flights from Chicago (ORD) to Delhi (DEL) will dine on new entrées developed by the executive chef of Chicago’s critically-acclaimed Vermilion restaurant, Maneet Chauhan.
“We are pleased to offer our customers entrées that unite the best of two cultures as part of American’s continued commitment to enhance premium class products and services,” said Lauri Curtis, American’s Vice President - Onboard Service. “Chef Chauhan’s extensive knowledge of Indian cuisine and contemporary culinary techniques combined to create a flavorful menu reflective of the characteristics commonly appreciated by our customers.”
“On behalf of Vermilion, I’m delighted to introduce the vibrancy and bold flavors of Indian cuisine to American Airlines guests,” said Chauhan. “While Vermilion is known for its unique Indian-Latin fusion, these authentic Indian creations and their eclectic accompaniments that we’ve crafted exclusively for American go beyond the stereotypical Indian fare found outside of India. We hope American’s passengers enjoy their culinary journey prior to arrival.”
The new menu is the result of a collaborative effort between Vermilion, Gate Gourmet chefs, and American Airlines flight attendants.
