Malaysia Airlines has extended its ‘Chef-on-Call’ service to Business Class passengers traveling on its flights between Kuala Lumpur and the cities of Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London, Paris, Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney and Auckland. The Chef-on-Call menu for Business Class passengers of Malaysia’s national carrier consists of a wide selection of 20 to 30 dishes ranging from Malaysian favourites, Chef’s recommendations, healthy meals and light meals.
The Malaysian menu selections comprise among others, the all-time favourites like Nasi Lemak, Assam Pedas Fish, Beef Korma, Chicken Curry Kapitan, Stir Fried Chicken, Wok Fried Egg Noodles, Ayam Kechap, Mutton Curry and Stir Fried Egg Noodles with Seared Prawns. These are not only offered for flights from Malaysia but also for flights originating from the European and Australia/New Zealand cities. Customers traveling from these cities get to enjoy the unique Malaysian Hospitality, not only through the world-renowned and award winning Malaysia Airlines cabin crew but also through the authentic Malaysian cuisine from the moment they start their flights to Malaysia.
Dato’ Salleh Ahmad Tabrani, Malaysia Airlines’ Director of Customer Services said, ” This exclusive service was originally available to our Frequent Flyer members of Enrich Platinum category traveling in First and Business Classes when it was rolled out from 1 September 2006 and later extended to all First Class passengers on the Kuala Lumpur-London and Kuala Lumpur-Sydney routes from 1 February 2011.”
“The Chef-on-call menu for both our First and Business classes is revised every two months where five dishes will be replaced with new ones to ensure our guests have a variety of meal selections. We are confident that our customers will enjoy Chef-on-Call as we strive to always exceed our customer’s expectations in our products and services. This is also yet another enhancement to make our product competitive and attractive to match the expectations of new customers from the oneworld alliance members who fly on us from 1 February this year,” he added.
