QAN­TAS’s lat­est foray into the web world of in­ter­na­tional travel is some­thing the air­line calls (a lit­tle clum­sily, I sug­gest) Se­lect on Q-Eat. But the idea is great, en­abling pre-se­lec­tion of a pre­ferred meal ser­vice on­line, 72 to 24 hours prior to de­par­ture. Ac­cord­ing to Qan­tas, by pre-or­der­ing their meal, pas­sen­gers are given ac­cess to a wider range of choices. Qan­tas busi­ness-class food is prob­a­bly some­thing you don’t want to miss, how­ever time zones may af­fect your ap­petite. Says Qan­tas In­ter­na­tional chief ex­ec­u­tive Simon Hickey: ‘‘An ini­tial trial of the Se­lect on Q-Eat ser­vice on our Los An­ge­les route was very well re­ceived by cus­tomers, who liked the broader menu and the abil­ity to choose in ad­vance at what stage in the flight they would like to eat.’’ The ser­vice was ex­tended to all Qan­tas in­ter­na­tional busi­ness-class ser­vices in Oc­to­ber.
