SWISS TO OFFER À LA CARTE MEALS IN ECONOMY CLASS
SWISS is further expanding its SWISS Choice product for its inflight guests. Travellers in Economy Class on long-haul flights from Switzerland can now pre-order an à la carte lunch or dinner.
The new choices extend to six different meals, each of which has been specially selected to meet established customer wishes and tastes. The new à la carte options comprise Zürcher Kalbsgeschnetzeltes (traditional Zurich-style sliced veal in a creamy sauce), a “Swiss Brunch”, a platter of Swiss cold cuts and cheeses, a light dining option, a gourmet selection and a Japanese meal. The prices for these vary between CHF 29 and 49. Travelers can also opt for a half-bottle of Californian Chardonnay or Italian Sangiovese to accompany their meal.
The new à la carte meals are intended not to replace SWISS‘s regular Economy Class food and drinks but to offer supplementary individual options to the customers concerned. A limited number of such à la carte meals will be available per flight. The new meals can be ordered now at swiss.com/swisschoice for any long-haul flight from Switzerland carrying a SWISS flight number, operated by SWISS and departing on or after 7 September. All such meals must be ordered in advance, 24 hours at the latest before departure. The new à la carte Economy Class meal option is not available on SWISS services to Cairo, Tel Aviv or Shanghai, but travelers from Zurich to Johannesburg will be able to indulge in this new offering.
