As of last week, Lufthansa have upgraded their in-flight dining service on both and long-haul flights for Business and First Class passengers. The improvements began from May 1st and cabin staffs have been providing exceptional service to passengers in both classes since; the upgrades to the in-flight products include new creative menus created by Michelin star chefs, new ideas for table service, quality tableware and other details that heighten the level of sophistication.
Lufthansa’s First Class cabin has received much praise over recent months including receiving top marks for the Skytrax Star Ranking. The airline has already implemented plans to offer guests a new range of culinary delights on flights from Germany. The ‘Culinary Delights’ programme is the airline’s advancement on the current Star Chef service which sees the airline serve menus created by renowned local chefs. The ‘Culinary Delights’ programme will use the expertise of chefs who have at least two Michelin stars or a distinction that is equally comparable. Menus will be changing on a bi-monthly rotation.

First Class will be able to indulge in a caviar service, a separate course on both evening and day flights. Canapés will be available for passengers to enjoy on each flight, instead of the traditional single appetiser. To ensure the service emulates the epitome of fine dining, First Class passengers can enjoy their meal on exclusive tableware with a new design and served with a small bowl of olive oil, individual pots for both pepper and salt and glass carafes filled with fresh water.
Business Class dining has also undergone a revamp; the new menu now includes a wider variety of dishes, beverages and pastries with the freshest ingredients. The menu now caters for each and every taste and includes a new selection of teas, a greater choice of juices, fresh milk for coffee and tea as well as two new beers – dark beer and wheat beer. New cutlery and china are also being added to the service to make dining in-flight a grander experience.
Passengers on all routes will be able to experience the new and improved quality of in-flight dining. Business Class passengers will also be guaranteed a full meal when they board flights operating within Europe and specifically Germany. None of the luxury is spared on short-haul flights as napkins, china, new wine glasses and coffee mugs are also available making sure that no passenger misses the delights of fine dining and quality service. Flights over 76 minutes will be given a sweet treat to finish off the meal such as ice cream or fruit.
