Air France Is Now Serving A Michelin-Starred Menu For Premium Guests

Air France Michelin menu

Dining when you’re 30,000 feet in the air doesn’t exactly have the best reputation, and for good reason – airline meals are often almost inedible. Doing their bit to change this unpalatable reputation is Air France, which has recently announced the introduction of a Michelin-starred menu for guests flying in both La Première and Business cabins.

Running exclusively on long-haul flights departing from Paris (exactly when you need a square meal), the new menus will be served from July to October this year. The menus themselves have been designed by the French chefs Michel Roth and Anne-Sophie Pic, who have won multiple Michelin stars between them, and according to Air France’s statement have been tasked with offering “exceptional French cuisine that is more sustainable and responsible.”

The menu will take advantage of various seasonal produce, including carefully sourced vegetables, meats, fish and more. As anyone who’s enjoyed an exceptional meal will know, good food should be complemented by great wine, which Air France also has covered with a wine and champagne list curated by the internationally recognised sommelier Paolo Basso.
