Swiss business class customers on long-haul services are now able to pre-select their inflight meal online.

All long-haul flights departing from Zurich and Geneva from June 1 are eligible for the new service, with customers able to place their order at between four weeks and 36 hours before scheduled departure.

The service also means passengers can choose from a wider range of main dishes, including the four options featured in the current cycle of the ‘Swiss Taste of Switzerland’ culinary programme, alongside four further pre-selection-only dishes.

Three of these are inspired by Swiss cuisine – sliced veal in cream sauce, meatloaf with morel sauce, and perch fillets with lemon butter – while the fourth is a red vegetable curry with basmati rice from Zurich’s Hiltl vegetarian restaurant.

The move follows the recent addition of a pre-selection service for Swiss’ economy buy-on-board dining menu, available on short and medium-haul flights to or from Zurich or Geneva and over 50 minutes in duration.

The long-haul pre-selection option complements the carrier’s dine-when-you-want service for business class customers which was launched last year.
