Premium economy and economy passengers on EVA Air will soon be able to enjoy the same meals as those travelling in business class.
The new meals, created by chefs Huang Ching Biao and Joe Huang, will be free of charge for business class and Royal Laurel passengers from October 1 until December 31, 2022.
Premium economy and economy passengers, meanwhile, will be able to upgrade their meals for US$25.75 (before departure), though there is limited availability with only eight special meals in premium and 12 in economy up for grabs.
Chef Huang Ching Bao has created a multi-course meal selection featuring steamed halibut with chopped chilli paste paired with seasoned shrimp and lime vinaigrette, chayote vines salad with pine nuts and water chestnut cake with osmanthus for dessert.
Evergreen Sky Catering chef Joe Huang, meanwhile, has designed a meatless alternative, with ingredients sourced locally in Taiwan to further reduce carbon emissions. The menu features an appetiser of layered plant-based crêpes filled with chopped truffles, a main course of artichoke with plant-based lasagne, and an apricot tart with oriental beauty tea jelly for dessert.
Both meals are presented on tableware from Singapore luxury brand Luzerne.
Passengers can select the new meal options by logging onto the Manage Your Trip platform on the EVA Air website or via the app. The selections can be made from 21 days until 24 hours before the scheduled departure.
