In an effort to enhance the dining options for passengers in Lufthansa‘s economy and premium economy cabins, the airline will introduce a la carte dining meals this summer, although you might not like the price tag.
The seven selected “multi-course” menus will offer passengers the chance to pre-purchase specific dishes on long-haul flights for an additional charge. Whether it’s a grilled beef steak, a Japanese bento box, hearty Bavarian snacks, or Asian dishes like Thai curry, the airline hopes there’s something for every traveller. However, many business travellers might bulk at the price, with meals costing between €19-33 (US$23-40).
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. The airline plans to launch the new service in May 2018. The “a la carte dining” meals can be booked on lufthansa.com up to 24 hours before departure.
