Get ready for more posh nosh at the pointy end, with Qantas now serving new meals in the business class cabin of its domestic flights.
A new range of 'Rockpool-inspired' dishes is central to the six-monthly 'seasonal refresh', which sees three main meal choices offered for breakfast, lunch, dinner and supper.
These include Heuvos Rancheros or Mexican ranch eggs, including two fried eggs, spiced tomato ragout served with warm tortillas and a mini bottle of tabasco; and for dinner, Jiang Xi style fish-of-the-day with pickled mustard greens and jasmine rice.
On east-west breakfast services travellers will also be served Botanica cold-pressed juices.
Qantas is also continuing its efforts to ensure that frequent flyers rarely see the same meal twice, which sees six menu variations for breakfast, lunch, dinner and supper – each containing three choices – rotated around the domestic network each week.
The airline is certain to trumpet the move as another sign of its ongoing investment in the all-important passenger experience, especially for corporate travellers.
Qantas is also boosting its domestic lounge network, with the opening of a dedicated business lounge at Perth (below) in August plus a multimillion dollar upgrade to the airline's Brisbane Airport terminal which will see new domestic and international lounges from 2016.
Earlier this year Qantas expanded economy meal times for domestic flights, with breakfast being served for an extra half hour on flights departing through to 8.59am for travellers who didn't grab something at the airport or the lounge; the lunch window extended by one hour to cover flights departing from 11am rather than noon; and dinner being served on flights departing from 5pm instead of 6pm.
