KLM Royal Dutch Airline (KLM) has signed up chef brothers Jacques and Laurent Pourcel to take charge of its business class on-board catering service.
The move forms part of a wider catering overhaul that will see improvements for passengers in KLM Select and KLM Intercontinental Economy Class as well as KLM World Business Class.
Intercontinental Economy Class passengers will see their portions increased by as much as 40%, while cutlery, rays and crockery will also be improved.
Erik Varwijk, executive vice-president of KLM Inflight Services, said: "The improvements were prompted by surveys conducted among passengers, assessing their needs and ratings of our in-flight products.
"The new products were developed in collaboration with leading gastronomic experts. We will be offering better quality meals and we have modernised the design of our trays, crockery and cutlery."
KLM is also targeting passengers flying to and from India a choice of Indian and Western cuisine.
Earlier this year, airline Thomsonfly announced that it had enlisted celebrity chef Aldo Zilli to prepare the menus for its in-flight meals for next summer.
The meals will appear on passengers' trays from 1 May, included in the price of premium fares and at the current price of £6 per head in economy class.
