Premium Qatar Airways customers will be happy to hear the carrier has launched a new onboard dining experience on its European routes.

The changes for passengers will include new dining menus, cutlery and chinaware meant to elevate the in-flight experience. The improved menus will feature customized dishes based on route destination in addition to traditional Middle Eastern meals available on most routes.

For Business Class travelers, Qatar will be adding new signature warm desserts and an afternoon tea experience on select routes. The changes are part of the airline’s focus on the ever-expanding dietary needs of its customers.

“Qatar Airways is thrilled to introduce a whole new onboard dining experience that will push the boundaries of Premium travel for our esteemed passengers,” Qatar Airways Group CEO Akbar Al Baker said in a statement. “Every new concept was designed and produced with the highest attention to detail and quality, to meet the exacting standards of our passengers.”

Qatar will provide lighter options for passengers, including salads, berries, breakfast oatmeal and healthy drinks such as cold-pressed juice with unique flavor combinations. In First Class, the carrier is also enhancing its Caviar service.

“Qatar Airways is collaborating closely with local farms and suppliers to produce products for our specific needs, promoting a ‘farm to table’ approach,” Al Baker continued. “Our in-flight dining menus are designed to align with the four seasons, better incorporating the use of locally-grown produce and tapping into authentic foods of local provenance delivering the very highest international standards.”

Last year, Qatar launched a pre-select dining option that allows travelers in First and Business Class to select one main course from the onboard menu as far as 14 days in advance and up to 24 hours before take-off.

American Airlines Offering Roundtrip Fares as Low as $32

Published

Granted, there are very few people taking to the air these days in the wake of the devastating global spread of the coronavirus.

But American Airlines, for whatever reason, is offering one of those crazy once-in-a-lifetime deals.

As first reported by One Mile At A Time, American has a fare through the month of April where you can fly from Miami to Los Angeles for $16 each way.

MORE Airlines & Airports

Yep, that’s right – $32 roundtrip to go coast to coast.

No doubt it’s one of the most eye-catching, startling fares ever offered, even better than when some airlines run a buy one/get one special. Not that we didn’t believe One Mile At A Time, one of the most well-respected and well-read aviation blogs out there, but we had to see this for ourselves.

Sure enough, when TravelPulse checked it out on Sunday, the fare had increased.

By eight whole dollars.

Choosing random dates and leaving Miami International Airport for Los Angeles International on April 22 and returning April 29, the fare for basic economy was $40 roundtrip. Want a better seat? Main cabin fares were just $96 roundtrip. (Forget about first class. You didn’t think American was that generous, did you? Those fares were $854 roundtrip.)

For the month of May, again choosing random dates and leaving Miami on May 13 and returning May 20, we found basic economy roundtrip fares for $56 and main cabin for $121.

So who’s going to take a flyer on these fares while the virus is still raging?

Certainly, there will be some folks, especially those that might absolutely need to travel more immediately. Or, you might have the gamblers out there who will take the chance that the pandemic and the restrictions will come to an end sooner than later, making the purchase of a May flight seem like a steal.
