*****UPDATE: Air France has now confirmed to Business Traveller that the new meal boxes are for domestic flights within France only.*****

Air France has introduced new “gourmet meal boxes” for business class customers on short-haul routes.

The boxes have been developed in collaboration with François Adamski, Servair Corporate Chef and Bocuse d’Or and Meilleur Ouvrier de France winner.

Customers travelling on flights departing before 1000 will receive breakfast boxes containing sandwiches with fillings including smoked salmon and cream cheese, as well as a pastry.

Meanwhile on services departing after 1000 the boxes will feature signature sandwiches with fillings including smoked paprika chicken and tarragon vegetables, as well as typical French sweets and desserts such as calisson, cannelé and tropézienne.

The menu will change each month, and business class passengers will also now be offered wine and Champagnes in glasses (flight conditions permitting).

Air France also highlighted the sustainable credentials of the new offering, with the meal box and food waste being sorted inflight, before the boxes are subjected to methanisation (a process for producing biogas and biomethane from organic waste).

Regular Air France customers will have previously sampled dishes by François Adamski, as he is one of the chefs contributing to the menus in the carrier’s short and medium-haul lounge at Paris CDG Terminal 2F, and in business class cabins on medium-haul flights.
