Search ASIA Travel Tips .com 17 August 2005

Business Class passengers on Finnair flights to New York will be treated to river crayfish as part of the in-flight menu from 19 August to 1 September 2005.

The genuine Finnish crayfish will be delivered fresh from the waters of Lake Saimaa at Savonlinna in eastern Finland, and prepared according to the expert instructions of the chefs at the kitchens of Finnair Catering Oy.

Crayfish is a traditional delicacy in the late summer in Finland and is consumed at special crayfish parties. In keeping with tradition, the crayfish on Finnair flights will be served with toast, dill and lemon as well as the appropriate Finnish schnapps accompaniment. Special souvenir utensils will be supplied that meet security requirements while also rising to the challenge of cracking the hard crayfish shells.

A new wine list is also being introduced at the same time and Finnair recommends an excellent white wine Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc 2004 from New Zealand to be enjoyed with the river crayfish.

Finnair continues to be authorized to display the prestigious Chaine de Rotisseurs at the entrance to MD-11 Business Class cabins in recognition of the high standard of catering on scheduled flights.
