Emirates plans Valentine's Day treats across its system

By Rick Lundstrom

Emirates will serve 40 unique Valentine’s Day themed desserts and treats on board and across its network of lounges spread over six continents.

Emirates’ chefs have created Valentine’s Day desserts for most of its 41 lounges worldwide from February 13-15. The culinary creations include an orange-ginger panna cotta served with berries and pistachios in Hamburg; heart-shaped shortcake served with fresh strawberries and whipped cream in Cape Town; chocolate and raspberry petit fours in Auckland; a chocolate St Valentine’s cake at Narita Airport in Tokyo; and chocolate-covered strawberries sprinkled with coconut in the lounges in the USA.

The seven Emirates lounges in Dubai are also putting on a full Valentine’s spread. Frequent flyers can enjoy a Rosé Impérial Champagne Moet & Chandon. This will be accompanied by a selection of Valentine's inspired cakes and desserts including a passion fruit cake with raspberry, red velvet cake and red velvet ice cream. Coffee lovers can also look for three Valentine’s Day coffee infusions by Coffee Planet – rose kissed mocha, orange crush latte or a white latte mocha.

On Valentine’s Day, Emirates will serve a special selection of desserts on longer flights across its network.In First and Business Class, customers can end their meals on a sweet note with a heart-shaped passion fruit cake.
