Qantas is rolling out its first new domestic Economy menu since onboard catering was simplified as a result of the pandemic.
The new menu caters to several dietary requirements and includes a vegetarian option for all meals following recent customer feedback.
With many customers travelling frequently across the Qantas domestic network, the menu will be served in multiple weekly cycles out of major Australian ports. There are six variations of the menu for each service time – breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and supper – meaning customers will experience more variety when they fly regularly.
Qantas Executive Manager of Product and Service Phil Capps said that the new domestic Economy menu reflects what Qantas customers have come to expect from the airline.
“Qantas is continuing to invest in product and service as we work to get back to our best. We have been progressively returning normal service levels and last month we fast tracked the return of vegetarian options on all flights.
“We started work on the new menu several months ago and have put a lot of effort into creating variety, drawing on premium ingredients from a wide range of local producers. We are proud to promote not just great Australian produce but also some terrific Australian small businesses like The Handmade Food Company based in Caboolture and Springhill Farm from Ballarat,” added Mr Capps.
Bolognese calzone, chicken and potato mediterranean croquettes, and zucchini and caramelised onion frittata are some of the new items on offer and complimentary wine and beer will continue to be available on select domestic flights from 4pm every day. On flights over three-and-a-half hours it’s available from 9am.
Highlights of the new Qantas Domestic Economy menu include:
- Breakfast packs with yoghurt, banana, honey and macadamia bread and sliced apples
- Ham and egg hollandaise ciabatta
- Spinach and ricotta wrap
- Roast chicken and chive on light rye sandwich
- Zucchini and corn fritters
- Gluten free and plant based chocolate caramel slice
- Pear and ginger cake
