Privileges and myriad amenities are all the way for all those premium customers traveling on Qatar Airways’ flights. In its latest move Qatar Airways has unveiled a new pre-order dining service for its first class and business class customers traveling on select long-haul routes from Doha. The airline in a statement said that the preferred main course will now be available on pre-order by first class and business class customers at least 14 days up to 24 hours in advance before scheduled departure. This can be done by visiting the My Trips section on the airline’s official website or through the mobile app. The new service will be initially available on the airline’s select flights from Doha to New Zealand, Australia, South America, North America and Europe. The service is likely to be extended to other regions as well on the airline’s global network by the end of 2017.
Media reports said that the new pre-order dining option will be available along with the existing dine-on-demand service. With this kind of service available now the premium customers boarding their first class or business class flights would be assured beforehand that their preferred meals will be reserved and they can fly in great comfort with full knowledge that can dine whenever they want while simultaneously relaxing and enjoying the superior in-flight entertainment and amenities that come along with travel in premium cabins.
Qatar Airways is however not the first airline to have introduced a pre-order dining service for its customers traveling in first class or business class. Apart from Qatar Airways, other international airlines such as Singapore Airlines and British Airways have launched pre-select meals service for their premium customers. It may be noted that Singapore Airlines launched a Book the Cook service for its customers traveling in suites, first class, business class and premium economy cabins. British Airways also introduced pre-order meals service on select international flights from London Heathrow and London Gatwick airports for its first class, business class (Club World) and premium economy (World Traveller Plus) customers. Apart from this, the airline also allows its economy class (World Traveller) customers the option to buy in-flight meals in advance.
