Qantas woos international passengers with improved economy catering

Qantas has unveiled details of its new in-flight dining offering, which is set to re-define the travel experience for international Economy customers when it rolls out across the network from next week.

Customers will enjoy a wider choice of meals, fifty per cent larger servings and faster service.

Qantas Group chief executive Alan Joyce said the dining experience will set a new standard for more than five million Economy customers travelling across the airline’s international network each year.

“We have worked closely with Australia’s leading producers and suppliers to deliver what we believe to be the best inflight economy dining experience offered by any international carrier,” said Joyce.

“The new menu offers more generous meals and an increase from two to four meal options.


“We also have new meal categories, including a healthy option, comfort food and a meal inspired by the route itself, like Smoky Barbeque Beef on our US flights.

“We have extended our Select on Q Eat service to Economy passengers enabling them to pre-order their meal online with access to an exclusive dish as the fourth dish.

“Together with new serving plates, which remove the need for trays, our crew will be able to serve and clear meals up to 30 minutes faster giving them more time to interact and assist passengers,” added Joyce.

Some of the new dishes on the menu include smoky barbecue beef with roasted sweet potato, broccoli and corn; honey roasted chicken farro salad and seasonal vegetables with pumpkin and sesame seeds; scrambled eggs with chicken sausage, tomato, hash brown and baked beans; and Ruby & Roy’s traditional Greek yoghurt with granola.
“In delivering the new service Qantas continues to invest in Australian suppliers and showcasing the best of what we have to offer to people around the world,” said Joyce.
