airberlin has announced that it is expanding its globally unique airgusto restaurant service. From February 1, 2017 it will also be available on all long-haul flights from Dusseldorf and for the first time on flights from New York and Abu Dhabi. airberlin introduced the restaurant service on long-haul flights from Berlin in October 2016 and it has quickly become popular with its passengers.
With airgusto, passengers who have booked a long-haul airberlin flight in Economy Class can choose from a selection of more than 20 different meals from 17 trendy local restaurants. The meals are prepared by specialized in-flight catering chefs using the original recipes of the partner restaurants to make certain that the taste and texture of the food is just as impressive at 10,000 meters as it would be in the restaurants in Berlin, Dusseldorf, New York or Abu Dhabi.
airberlin says “the quality and freshness of the meals are key for the airgusto experience.” The airworthy meals are then loaded onto the aircraft in compliance with strict safety and hygiene standards and served in the cabin on china crockery. For instance, Menta Cucina Italiana adds Italian flair to in-flight dining, while the Seoul restaurant treats passengers to authentic Korean cuisine on flights from Dusseldorf. airberlin passengers on flights departing New York can enjoy an American burger from Burger Joint or a Mac&Cheese from Macbar, while Circo and Byblos spoil them with Tuscan and Lebanese delicacies on flights from Abu Dhabi. The prices for the three-course meals range start from $25.
Orders can be placed up to twelve hours before departure by entering the booking number at iFleat.com or via the free iFleat app. More information about the restaurant service is available at airberlin.com/airgusto.
