Aer Lingus launches new meals for pre-order
In mid-December, Irish flagship carrier Aer Lingus joined the ranks of airlines offering passengers the ability to pre-order meals for consumption on all non-regional short-haul flights.
The program initially launched with the airline’s very popular All Day Irish Breakfast meal, which passengers can order as much as 90 days day before departure (the cut-off for procrastinators is 36-hours before boarding) for €7.50. The “full Irish breakfast” consists of two pork sausages, grilled bacon, tomato, black and white pudding and a hash brown served with McCmabridge’s Irish brown bread, fresh orange juice and a choice of coffee or tea - a hefty serving to say the least.
This month, Aer Lingus added a Chicken Noodle Salad and a Seared Beef & Potato Salad to the program. Also prices at €7.50, the Chicken Noodle Salad features soy marinated chicken and green pesto infused noodles on a bed of lettuce with pineapple, tomato and toasted sesame seeds accompanied by ponzu dressing accompanied by a freshly baked soft white roll, served with a choice of tea or coffee. The Seared beef Salad included pepper-seared fillet of beef served with German potato salad, artichoke, fresh lettuce and tomato, accompanied by horseradish sauce on the side, plus a freshly baked soft white roll and a choice of tea or coffee.
After booking their trip, passengers can order one of the three selections through the Aer Lingus website. Upon ordering, guests will receive a confirmation email containing a pre-order meal redemption voucher, which they then must present your to a member of cabin crew during the flight.
