Passengers will be given a choice of three main courses, including a lighter option for the more health conscious.

Malaysian chicken curry, fish and fennel pot pie and Indian style kadi pakora are among the selection of main meals.

In addition to fresh fruit, a healthy yoghurt and croissant with preserves, Economy passengers travelling at breakfast time will be able to choose from two hot dishes such as Zucchini and Majoran Fritatta with Cherry tomatoes or Apple and Cinnamon crepe with maple syrup and berry garnish.

Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said, “Over the years, scientific research has demonstrated that food presentation makes an enormous contribution to the enjoyment of a meal. With this in mind, our new-look meal trays are guaranteed to satisfy passenger taste-buds across the Economy Class cabin.”

Following the introduction of this new tray service on flights between Doha and London Heathrow, London Gatwick and Manchester, Qatar Airways plans to roll out the concept across the remainder of its international network over the next few months.
