Onboard SWISS Business Class, you’re treated to a Taste Of Switzerland in the sky. The airline regularly updates their inflight dining offering, highlighting a different ‘Canton’ or region of Switzerland with the menus created in conjunction with Top Chef’s from the regions.
Upon boarding the flight we were given both the dinner menu and the breakfast menu, along with a pen to make our selections for breakfast the following morning.
The SWISS breakfast menu is handed out upon boarding with the option to pre-order your breakfast meal saving time prior to landing, giving you longer to sleep. The breakfast options include full cooked breakfasts along with pastries, fruit, muesli, juice and tea or coffee which you can add to your order.
The inflight business class dining service started soon after boarding with the offer of a welcome drink and snack as the rest of the plane prepared for take off.
For dinner, business class passengers have an option of a 3 course meal, or a quicker small meal if you’d prefer to settle into bed. The quick option consists of a starter, cup of soup, salad cheese and dessert that is served all at once shortly after take off. We opted for the leisurely dinner option which is served in a restaurant style, one course at a time.
First course options included a vela carpaccio served with mushroom puree and pickled vegetables or a salmon sashimi, both served with a seasonal salad. We chose the salmon sashimi which was very fresh and tasty.
Main course consisted of a Veal Ragout served with roasted bramata, Sauteeed cod fillet, or a Vegetarian penne with mushroom cream sauce. The meal was served with a selection of Swiss cheeses, a side salad and your choice of a range of wine, beer and soft drinks.
The main meal was finished with a Chocolate Slice served with a plum mousse which was delicious!
Waking with a couple of hours left in the flight I enjoyed my pre-ordered breakfast at a leisurely pace. My Breakfast included a poached egg with hollandaise sauce, bircher muesli, fresh fruit, croissants, coffee and juice. Other Options included adding a Swiss breakfast of cold cuts and cheese, an Asian breakfast of Congee, Danish pastries, yoghurt, and a range of Teas.
Throughout the meal the flight attendants offered me the option to add items I hadn’t initially selected, you certainly won’t go hungry!
Overall there was plenty of food offered onboard and the business class meals were of a high standard, the ease to order and the wide range of meals available meant for a very pleasant inflight dining experience.
