Exquisite culinary experience at 10K?


On every continent celebrity chefs are being courted by airlines to consult
on Michelin-star menus at high altitude – usually for meals served in first and business class.
Heston Blumenthal is teaming up with British Airways,
Joel Robuchon is heading for Air France,
Michael Chiarello is cooking for Delta
and Richard Sandoval is working with American Airlines.

Are you, like me, a regular commuter on well-known airlane twixt Zurich and London?
Do you look forward to the inflight bacon and cheese melt and relish the repeat experience?
What is your best airline food experience, if these concepts are not mutually exclusive?
Would you be prepared, say, to sit and pay a substantial amount for a decent onboard meal in preference to standing in a queue for up to an hour?
Maybe you could pay for your flight etc. at the same time. No need to book in advance.
Sort of..... pay for a gourmet meal and get a free flight...
Or am I flogging a dead horse with this?

Re: Exquisite culinary experience at 10K?

best meal i had whilst flying was with Thai, beats anything i have ever had on european airlines.. and I only do business on longhaul.

but the aircraft can have an effect on taste due to the pressure.

Food that tastes good at sea level tastes different at 8000 - 8500ft or the lower 4500- 5500ft for newer planes.

but it all still has to be pre-prepared so all you ever get is 3/4 cooked and reheated meals anyway.
