After several months of development, Qantas has rolled out its new domestic Economy Class menu. The new menu features dishes such as ham and egg hollandaise ciabattas, spinach and ricotta wraps, roast chicken and chive on light rye sandwiches, zucchini and corn fritters, pear and ginger cakes and gluten-free and plant-based chocolate caramel slices.
Bolognese calzone, chicken and potato Mediterranean croquettes, and zucchini and caramelised onion frittata are also offered, and complimentary wine and beer is available on select domestic flights from 4pm every day, and from 9am on flights over three and half hours, according to the carrier.
Qantas says the menu will be served in multiple weekly cycles out of major Australian port and that there are six variations of the menu for each service time – breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and supper.
Phil Capps, Qantas Executive Manager of Product and Service commented: “Qantas is continuing to invest in product and service as we work to get back to our best. We have been progressively returning normal service levels and last month we fast tracked the return of vegetarian options on all flights.
“We started work on the new menu several months ago and have put a lot of effort into creating variety, drawing on premium ingredients from a wide range of local producers. We are proud to promote not just great Australian produce but also some terrific Australian small businesses like The Handmade Food Company based in Caboolture and Springhill Farm from Ballarat,” added Mr Capps.
