LUFTHANSA airline has impressed customers with a new fine-dining menu.
You rarely hear holidaymakers raving about plane food – but now they actually have a reason to.
German airline Lufthansa has unveiled an a la carte menu that consists of seven dishes.
The gourmet grub is even available to economy passengers, who can indulge in a spot of fine-dining for an additional charge.
A wide variety of different culinary delights can be ordered at 36,000 feet.
Main meals include grilled steak and spicy Thai curry.
Those looking for something healthy have the option of ordering an Asian vitality menu with quinoa.
Passengers who want smaller portions can opt for bento boxes of sushi or Bavarian snacks.
All these lavish extras don’t come cheap, as you can expect to pay between £17-£29 for the different dishes.
The newly-launched meals can be purchased on all of Lufthansa’s intercontinental flights from Munich and Frankfurt.
Customers can place their food orders up to 24 hours before departure.
Previously, we revealed that pilots and co-pilots can’t eat the same meal on a flight.
This isn’t the only surprising fact about plane food. Airline meals are a lot more calorific than you may imagine.
It may also be useful to note that you are more likely to get an upgrade if you ask for this specific food.
