Qantas updates Economy meal offerings


Qantas customers travelling in Economy are now enjoying a new in-flight dining offering between Johannesburg (South Africa) and Australia with a wider choice of meals, 50% larger servings and quicker service.

The Australian airline engages with local suppliers in each region to source fresh produce and deliver a range of dishes inspired by the destination, such as a North African beef stew on Johannesburg flights. There are also new meal categories, including a healthy option and comfort food.

Shortly after take-off, passengers are served a welcome drink from Australian cordial supplier Bickford’s signature range, featuring flavours exclusive to Qantas such as blueberry and pomegranate. Snacks throughout the flight include fresh fruit, ice-cream and chocolates, and prior to arrival customers are offered a selection of breakfast options. 

Economy passengers can also pre-order their meal online with access to an exclusive dish, via the Select on Q Eat service. This is currently only available on flights departing Australia, but will be introduced progressively on inbound flights from Johannesburg to Sydney in coming months.
