KLM brings in dining a la carte

Royal Dutch prepares gourmet touch for economy pax

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is preparing to offer economy-class passengers the option of ordering a la carte meals on intercontinental flights originating in Amsterdam. This will be an option in addition to the airline’s standard catering. Four different a la carte meals will be available, for a fee, on flights from 14 September 2011. On the menu are Healthy Japanese, a light Japanese meal; Bella Italia, featuring popular Italian dishes; an Indonesian rice table with traditional dishes; and a vegetarian meal. Prices range from €12 to €15. Passengers get to say what they want; if they want them, they can place their gourmet meal orders from 90 days to 48 hours ahead of departure.
