One reason to specifically choose to fly Lufthansa in First Class is their delicious in-flight food menu. On a personal note, I am also a champion of their more open plan cabins, which I prefer over the enclosed suite or coffin first class compartments. The menu below was enjoyed during my flight on Lufthansa’s A380 First Class Frankfurt to Bangkok.
Lufthansa’s First Class product is known for its excellent menus that have been prepared using seasonal and regional produce. The carrier’s onboard catering is provided by LSG Sk Chefs, a subsidiary of Lufthansa and the biggest airline caterer in the world. On this particular flight, dinner was served right after takeoff, and breakfast about 90 minutes prior to landing (although you could have your meals at any time you wanted).
I chose the following selection from the dinner menu:
Appetizer: spicy beef tartare
Caviar with the traditional garnishes.
Starter, a mix of:
Stuffed beef ham with gorgonzola and date sesame chutney.
Spiced carrots with curried yoghurt.
Salad of shrimp and green papaya with chilli.
Fresh leaf salad with grilled vegetables and yoghurt lime dressing.
Main course: skrei (winter cod) with beurre blanc, bean cassoulet, smoked bell pepper mash, and Passe-Pierre seaweed.
Dessert: warm curd cake with lemon thyme, yoghurt oat crumbles and sour cream ice cream flavoured with lime leaves.
Every single meal tasted excellent and was beautifully presented, although unfortunately, I wasn’t too hungry after spending my pre-flight hours in the food feast of the Lufthansa First Class Terminal.
Freshly squeezed orange juice.
Tropical yoghurt smoothie.
Assorted fresh fruits.
Muesli with yoghurt.
Yoghurt with blackberry coulis.
Gouda and brie.
Black forest ham and bresaola della Valtellina.
A selection of different breads and rolls, croissant, muffins and Danish pastry
Butter, jam, honey and Nutella.
