A new gimmick in airline food: quality

For those who complain that even in first class the food on airlines is wretched, Hawaiian Airlines begs to differ.

The airline has been experimenting with offering a tasting menu in first class, comprised of 20 different entrees on a rotation, with five available to choose from on any given flight. For lunch or dinner, customers will choose three of the five, and for breakfast they will select two of three plus will receive a fresh fruit plate.

The dishes have included the likes of Hawaiian crab cake with a pinneapple salsa, rock shrimp and lemon pepper ravioli with creamy sun dried tomato/basil sauce, and chicken tandoori with a tangy makhani sauce and sultana basmati rice pilaf," according to a company press release. In addition, they will be offering a Pomegranate Passion beverage which was created exclusively for the airline.

The tasting menu was introduced in March on the San Francisco-to-Honolulu route, but is being phased in system-wide this month.
