Airline Executives... Chefs, I Mean...

Sun Feb 29, 2004 5:56 pm

Aloha Airlines and Hawaiian Air are fortunate to have two of the island's premier chefs in consulting their on-board meals. AQ has Alan Wong while HA has Beverly Gannon. Both chefs are pioneers of Hawaii Regional Cuisine, which infuses international w/ an Island zing.

This means both passengers of HA and AQ get to sample one of the best meals, even in coach, which means fresh and local. The question is, are there other airlines that consult world famous chefs?

That Hawaiian Airlines meal is making me hungry. That is one of the best looking inflight meals I had even seen.

SQ has a "Book the Cook" service it offers in J and F. You can pre-select your main course from a variety of offerings, some even varying based on departure city I believe. Their website goes into this service with more detail, including the menu offerings. Check it out.

Kalakaua, I think at one time Sam Choy was consulting for UA on the Hawaii routes menus. Haven't heard of that as of late though. I agree, the food in F on HA is the best airline food I have had. Presentation is always well done and service is very gracious.
