Air France’s Long-Haul Now With Michelin-Starred Menus

Air France is serving up a new Michelin-starred menu created by French Chefs Michel Roth and Anne-Sophie Pic in its long-haul La Première and Business cabins on departure from Paris. And Johannesburg bound travelers can tuck in.


  • Michel Roth is one of the most successful chefs in France with one of the most prestigious records in French gastronomy.
  • As part of the fight against food waste, Air France is this year making it possible to pre-select a hot meal in the Business cabin before departure.
  • Earlier this year, Air France revealed a new comfort kit for La Première.

Whilst airline travel usually doesn’t conjure up images of haute cuisine, Michelin-starred Chef Michel Roth, Bocuse d’or and Meilleur Ouvrier de France recipient, has set out to create a new series of resolutely French, gourmet and refined dishes for customers in the La Première cabin. The chef has created an appetizer, a starter and eight dishes that will gradually be unveiled on the menu of the airline’s most exclusive cabin, this summer.

The La Première cabin is available on certain flights to Los Angeles, Miami, New York-JFK, San Francisco, Washington DC (United States), Mexico City (Mexico), Abidjan (Côte d’Ivoire), Johannesburg (South Africa), Dubai (United Arab Emirates) and Sao Paulo (Brazil). Air France is also continuing its collaboration with triple Michelin-starred Chef Anne-Sophie Pic, who this season is creating high-flying menus in the long-haul Business cabin. The Chef has concocted eight tasty dishes for optimum enjoyment on board.

Working with carefully selected seasonal produce, vegetarian products, red and white meat and fish, the Chefs look to create refined dishes for the airline’s customers to enjoy over the coming months.
