It was a really tasty dish of savoury rice and peas, alongside two types of curry – paneer cheese and mixed vegetable, plus a green salad, a fruit salad and a wholemeal roll with margarine. It was better than some business class lunches I have had on other airlines. Cutlery was pink plastic and there was a cup of water provided on the tray.

There is a good selection of movies on the AVOD (audio-video on-demand) entertainment system, Also ice cream is offered, followed by soft drinks (juice/water) .
