Dutch airline KLM is to offer economy-class passengers à la carte meals, it announced today.
Bucking the sector's current trend for offering passengers less in-flight food, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines will now offer travellers on intercontinental flights the option of ordering à la carte.
Following a successful year-long trial, four different à la carte meals will be available on flights from 14 September, in addition to the airline's standard catering.
The options include Japanese, Italian, Indonesian or a vegetarian meal. Prices range from €12 to €15.
Erik Varwijk, KLM's managing director said: "This is a further response to growing customer demand for customised services, offering more choice and more options for customers in determining their own flight experience."
