It is three months now since Italy’s national carrier Alitalia unveiled its revamped brand, livery and interiors. The airline is still on course to roll out its new interiors throughout its fleet. Here’s an insight into the upgraded business class service being provided on the airline’s Boeing 777 aircraft.
Alitalia’s new Magnifica cabin (business class) offers you a great experience the moment you step in the Boeing 777 aircraft. The airline will be offering you an aperitif, water or juice, along with branded Salvatore Ferragamo amenity kits, a pillow and blanket, and fabulous menus with choicest gourmet meals. The upgraded service comes as part of Alitalia’s partnership with Etihad Airways, which decided to pump in huge amount of money to vastly improve the struggling airline’s product and service.
To attract premium flyers in a big way, Alitalia has introduced new eat-when-you-want dining service. This exclusive feature of the airline offers the customers travelling on business class flights option to order meals whenever they want. The order will however be taken before departure. The meals will be delivered right to your seat by tray, instead of trolley. Just sample the delicacies that will be served to you. These include light beef Bresaola, goat’s cheese mousse, potato ravioli filled with ricotta and spinach, braised chicken supreme filled with field mushrooms and topped with a borage crust, Parmesan gratin potato cake, and rich layered chocolate cake.
You can look forward to a luxurious flying experience with forward-facing fully flat beds. When travelling along with your spouse, the airline offers you the option to choose one of the “honeymoon” pairs in the middle of the cabin. A window seat set back from the aisle is the best for solo travellers seeking privacy.
