Emirates has won Saveur Magazine’s Culinary Travel Award for Best In-Flight Dining: First Class & Business Class for the second consecutive year.
Saveur, an American-based, globally recognized culinary-travel magazine, asked an expert panel of world travelers and readers to identify the world’s best cities, markets, restaurants, bars, hotels, airlines and other experiences.
The panel cited Emirates’ seven-course meals served on Royal Doulton fine bone china, extensive range of vintage wines, and healthy fare as factors that set it apart from other entrants.
Emirates’ regionally inspired dishes are prepared by five-star chefs, who customize each in-flight menu to reflect the culinary tastes of specific routes and destinations. Travelers can experience a different menu with each Emirates trip – from Japanese gastronomy served in specially designed crockery, to authentic Indian regional favorites.
The Saveur panel also recognized Emirates’ Onboard Lounge – available to First Class and Business Class passengers on A380 flights – as another key service element that helped the airline earn top honors. The Onboard Lounge provides a place for passengers to stretch their legs, network over fine wines and cocktails, and enjoy hors d’oeuvres and delicacies at 40,000 feet.
