Emirates will now take your meal order before you fly

#Traveltradetogether

If flying between Dublin and Dubai, tantalise your tastebuds and order your meal before you fly with Emirates’ new pre-flight service.

Emirates has extended its inflight ‘pre-ordering’ service to routes between Dublin and Dubai meaning Business Class customers can now review their menus and order their preferred choice before they fly.

The new service allows passengers in Business Class to select their main course between 14 days and 24 hours in advance of their flight departure, which will also help to reduce food wastage.

Inviting Emirates passengers to enjoy a fine dining experience in the sky, passengers will be able to browse the onboard menu on Emirates.com or on the Emirates app to choose from a selection of regionally inspired dishes with locally sourced ingredients.

Business Class meals include a choice of dishes such as chocolate hazelnut pancakes with apricot compote and ricotta sour cream for breakfast, beef tenderloin with thyme jus, roasted potato wedges and steamed vegetables for lunch, and pan-fried salmon trout with saffron cream, blanched green beans, braised beetroot and polenta with spring onions for dinner.

Onboard the aircraft, cabin crew will use digital devices to view a passenger’s selection. The new initiative is an addition to the existing suite of AI-enabled customer preference tracking data and cabin crew reports onboard Emirates, which facilitate menu planning, optimal food loading and waste minimization.

The move follows the successful launch of the Emirates inflight meal preordering initiative on UK routes and is being extended across selected routes across European cities as well as to and from Seychelles and Mauritius.

Digitally enabled journeys and innovation are a core focus at Emirates. The pre-flight meal service is complemented by website check-in and app check-in, the option of digital boarding passes and itinerary management, access to digital inflight menus, easy sign up to Skywards to immediately access free Wi-Fi messaging onboard, and ice inflight entertainment playlist curation in advance of a flight.
