Extended food selection: Lufthansa introduces “A la carte dining” meals in Economy and Premium Economy Class

In the future, seven selected menus can be ordered on long-haul flights for an extra charge

From summer 2018, Lufthansa Economy and Premium Economy Class passengers will be able to order one of seven selected “A la carte dining” meals on long-haul flights, for an extra charge.

The menu, which offers different variations to choose from depending on your taste and preference, includes meals such as:  grilled steak, Bento Box with a selection of classic Japanese sushi specialities, hearty Bavarian snacks, an Asian healthy menu with quinoa, or Mediterranean pasta with choice of shrimp or exotic Thai curry. All items are served to the passenger on stylish porcelain.

The multi-course menus are offered on almost all Lufthansa intercontinental flights from Frankfurt and Munich and are served on order instead of the regular first meal. They cost between 19 and 33 euros and are expected to be available beginning May 2018. The “A la carte dining” meals can be booked on lufthansa.com up to 24 hours before departure.

The “A la carte dining” meals do not replace the existing food and drink offerings in Economy and Premium Economy Class, but complement them at the passengers' individual request. Availability per flight is limited.
