Aer Lingus has launched a new business class menu while also expanding its inflight entertainment library by more than a third.

The Irish flag carrier updates its menus every three months, with the latest iteration including dishes such as skin-on thyme and parsley chicken supreme, herb-infused roasted pork, pan-fried hake, citrus-marinated salmon and a vegetarian root vegetable and pearl barley stew.

The airline will also serve starters of Irish smoked salmon, saffron-poached prawns, and a roast parsnip and seasonal apple soup, while desserts include a choice of lemon cream mousse and a local cheese board.

Aer Lingus has also boosted its inflight entertainment library by more than a third, adding up to 48 Irish movies and more than 1,000 TV episodes to screens this year. The carrier revealed that customers watched two million more movies and TV shows in 2023 than in the previous year.

Last week the airline also announced plans to add an extra flight on its Manchester-Orlando route, with the new fourth weekly flight operating from 18 December, 2024 until 8 January, 2025.

The carrier’s transatlantic flights from Manchester to New York JFK, Orlando and Barbados are operated by two-class Airbus A330s.
