Summer fun above the clouds: The French airline has introduced a host of new dishes for premium travel classes.
Air France introduces some innovations in business class. The airline is now introducing a new seat on the A350, but the taste experience will also be taken to a new level. For this, the airline cooperates with two star chefs, as if from one press release It can be seen. New dishes will be served in Business Class and First Class.
Star Chef handles the business class menu
Over the next four months, Air France passengers will be able to try a range of new dishes in Business Class and First Class. From July to October, new creations prepared by celebrity chefs will be served on board. In all, Air France is working with 17 chefs this year, who will collect dishes departing from Paris in business and first class cabins as well as in airport lounges.
French chef Thierry Marx has already earned two Michelin stars. Now he has prepared eight new business class dishes. Its particular focus is on botanical ingredients.
Just like travel, the kitchen brings people together. These are the values I share with Air France for the joy of its customers.

Conclusion on Air France’s new premium class onboard menu
New innovations in Air France’s Business and First Class look promising, especially since several star chefs have developed the concepts. At the same time, rumors have been circulating recently that the airline wants to do away with free drinks and snacks in Economy Class. Because Air France has conducted customer surveys that can indicate the purchase list on board. However, this was denied by the press office.
