New international chefs will offer a tailor-made dining experience on Etihad flights later this year.
In-flight meals may have a pretty rotten reputation, but luxury airline Etihad has made a big move towards changing that, with the introduction of qualified international chefs to serve its Diamond First class cabins.
The airline says it will deliver “five-star restaurant style” service, with premium passengers being offered “unparalleled attention and choice”.
Luxury options include having your own personal chef create tailor-made dishes, based on your particular tastes and preferences.
James Hogan, chief executive officer of Etihad Airways, said: “We know how important the in-flight dining experience is to our guests, which is why we have invested consistently in this area.”
The new chef service will be available on selected routes from October onwards, with all First Class flights getting the new chefs before the end of the year, the airline added.
Etihad Airways offers a range of international routes, including flights to Abu Dhabi and onwards connections to Australia, India and South Africa.
