British Airways extends availability of Chiva-Som Spa Menu in First Class

Travel News Asia 30 March 2005

In September 2004, British Airways joined forces with Thailands world-renown luxury health resort, Chiva-Som, to provide spa cuisine dishes for its First class passengers on selected flights to New York (JFK) and Bangkok.

This healthy alternative is now being extended to all services from London to Dubai, Melbourne, Newark, Sydney, Singapore, Miami, Hong Kong, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Darryl Bailey, First class brand manager for British Airways said, We are delighted to be deepening our relationship with Chiva-Som who are like minded in their desire to deliver the highest standards to customers, provide individualised exquisite service and focus on every detail.

The Chiva-Som menu adds to our already broad and flexible dining options which also includes pre-flight dining on the ground and a traditional a-la-carte menu created by our celebrity chefs.

Chiva-Soms award-winning spa cuisine draws on the fundaments of Thai culinary art to deliver light, easily digestible dishes that will leave passengers feeling comfortable in-flight and more energised on arrival. The food offers real benefits to flyers providing plenty of hydration in-flight and encouraging a good nights sleep.

The dishes include spiced grilled beef salad with Siamese herbs and roasted marinated salmon with green papaya salad. Mouth-watering dessert options include ricotta mousse with mango and chocolate mousse with fresh berries.

All the Chiva-Som menu options contain fresh, organic ingredients, which are low in fat and full of natural goodness, providing the perfect balance of fat, protein, calcium and carbohydrates while minimising harmful ingredients such as saturated fats and salt.

Chiva-Soms executive chef, Paisarn Cheewinsiriwat said, We have been delighted with the feedback we have received so far, and share the desire of British Airways to deliver the finest in-flight cuisine to its First class customers. Extending our unique partnership with British Airways will give more people the chance to realise that healthy food doesnt have to be boring and tasteless.
