While other airlines are cutting cost, Qatar Airways is introducing bespoke dining
Qatar Airways is rolling out a bespoke service for its premium class passengers, giving them even more choice and freedom to create a personalised dining experience every time they travel on long-haul flights from Doha.
The new Pre-Select Dining service is being introduced on selected flights to Europe, North and South America, Australia and New Zealand.
Passengers travelling in First and Business Class will have the opportunity to pre-select one main course from the à la carte on-board menu, as far as 14 days in advance and up to 24 hours before take-off. This is in addition to the existing and exemplary Dining-on-Demand service already available for valued First and Business Class passengers.
To pre-select a premium class meal, customers log into ‘My Trips’ on the Qatar Airways website and choose from the seasonal menu available on their flight. Meals can also be ordered through the Qatar Airways mobile app.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker said: “We are constantly looking for innovative ways to refine and enhance our products and services. Giving our premium passengers the opportunity to pre-select their meals before they fly is another example of our unrivalled on-board experience.
“Our new Pre-Select Dining service follows the introduction of our groundbreaking Business Class seat, Qsuite, earlier this year, which reinforces why Qatar AIrways was recognised as the World’s Best Business Class at this year’s 2017 Skytrax awards. We were also delighted to be named Airline of the Year for the fourth time, encouraging us to continue innovating to offer our unparalleled five-star service.”
The new Pre-Select Dining menu option will take Qatar Airways’ already renowned level of personalised service to new heights and complement the airline’s recently launched new Business Class experience. Premium passengers will now be able to board their flight in the comfort and knowledge that their pre-selected dish is reserved and waiting for them whenever they are ready to dine, giving them more time to relax and enjoy the airline’s superior on-board entertainment and amenities.
Launching on flights departing from Doha, Qatar Airways plans to extend premium Pre-Select Dining to other regions later this year.
