Healthy_ChoiceSwiss International Air Lines (SWISS) is further expanding its SWISS Choice product: the airline now offers its Economy Class travellers a range of à la carte meals on its long-haul flights from Switzerland. So in addition to the existing range of inflight meals, the customer can now choose from various exclusive alternatives, which can be ordered in advance for a fee.

 SWISS is further expanding its SWISS Choice product for its inflight guests. Travellers in Economy Class on long-haul flights from Switzerland can now pre-order an à la carte lunch or dinner. The new choices extend to six different meals, each of which has been specially selected to meet established customer wishes and tastes. The new à la carte options comprise Zürcher Kalbsgeschnetzeltes (traditional Zurich-style sliced veal in a creamy sauce), a “Swiss Brunch”, a platter of Swiss cold cuts and cheeses, a light dining option, a gourmet selection and a Japanese meal. The prices for these vary between CHF 29 and 49. The customer can also opt for a half-bottle of Californian Chardonnay or Italian Sangiovese to accompany their meal.

The new à la carte meals are intended not to replace SWISS’s regular Economy Class food and drinks but to offer supplementary individual options to the customers concerned. A limited number of such à la carte meals will be available per flight. The new meals can be ordered now at for any long-haul flight from Switzerland carrying a SWISS flight number, operated by SWISS and departing on or after 7 September. All such meals must be ordered in advance, 24 hours at the latest before departure. The new à la carte Economy Class meal option is not available on SWISS services to Cairo, Tel Aviv or Shanghai.
