Qatar Airways extends pre-order dining service
Qatar Airways has extended its recently introduced pre-order dining service for premium passengers.
The benefit is now available to business and first class travellers on long-haul routes to Africa and Asia, joining Europe, the Americas and Australasia.
Passengers can pre-select their main course from the a la carte menu, between 14 days and 24 hours before take-off, by logging into ‘My Trips’ on the Qatar Airways website or mobile app.
Commenting on the news Qatar Airways Group CEO Akbar Al Baker said:“Following its highly successful introduction in August, we have decided to extend our popular Pre-Select Dining service for passengers flying on long-haul flights from Doha to select destinations in Africa and Asia. This gives even more of our first and business class passengers the opportunity to preselect their meals before they fly and is a highly-valued enhancement to our already unrivalled on-board experience.”
The carrier is not the first to introduce a pre-order service for its premium customers. Singapore Airlines offers a Book the Cook service for its suites, first, business and premium economy passengers, while British Airways allows First, Club World and World Traveller Plus travellers to pre-order meals on selected flights from Gatwick and Heathrow (World Traveller passengers can also opt to purchase inflight meals in advance).
