The Lufthansa subsidiary Swiss enables business class passengers on long-haul routes to select their preferred meal before departure. The free pre-order can be made online up to 36 hours in advance.
For the time being, this service is only offered on long-haul connections from Switzerland. According to the airlines, there are four additional meals to choose from as part of the pre-order. With this service, which is already available from Zurich and will also be introduced from Geneva from June 1, 2022, the airline wants to expand the choice for business class passengers.
Within the Lufthansa Group, it is the first carrier to introduce this service. It can be assumed that Frankfurt, Vienna and Brussels will observe the response and follow suit if necessary. Depending on the flight, Swiss passengers in all travel classes still have the option of pre-ordering a special meal such as kosher or gluten-free dishes free of charge either directly when booking or afterwards via the Service Center.
