Visiting the land Down Under? Book your flight with Qantas and enjoy a new inflight dining experience, even if you’re an Economy customer. Launched last week on flights between Singapore and Australia, the new experience sees a wider choice of meals, larger food servings as well as better and faster service for passengers.

The magic happens the moment passengers take their seats, where Qantas crew are on hand to serve a welcome drink from Bickford’s signature range, a well-known Australian cordial supplier. Travelers from Singapore to Australia can choose from three main courses, and if that is not enough, fresh fruits and titbits are readily available too.

On the return leg, travelers will have an additional exclusive choice thanks to Qantas’ Select on Q-Eat, a service that enables them to pre-order their meal online prior to departure. This brings the total number of offerings to four. Select on Q-Eat will be progressively introduced to encompass flights departing from Singapore to Australia. Qantas has also included ingredients such as rice noodles, tofu and condiments such as soy chilli and garlic to cater to Asian tastebuds.

Continual refreshment service[3]

Other nice touches include new serving plates which remove the need for trays and allow crew to serve and clear up meals faster. The launch of the upgraded Airbus A330 aircraft on the Singapore-Australia route also sees lie-flat Marc Newson-designed Business Suites, new model Recaro seats in Economy and advanced inflight entertainment for all.
