Qatar Airways introduces 'PreSelect Dining'Back to Forum
First and business class passengers flying Qatar Airways can take advantage of a new service whereb they can order special meals in advance.
For the time being it’s available only on selected routes departing Doha. It’s believed these routes include flights to Europe (taking more than five hours), North and South America and Australasia. It would also include a couple of destinations in Asia.

Anybody know when this is due to start and how it will work? There is nothing on the web site yet.
I look forward to some ‘feedback’ from users before we fly LHR-DOH-BKK and return in November/December.
Hopefully there will be some ‘choice’ special order additions to the basic menu!
EvaAir were offering a system of pre-order for ‘J’ passengers when we flew with them for some years a while ago – worked well.

BPP – All details are provided on the above links. Not all destinations are covered and, currently, it applies only to flights departing Doha. If in doubt, re BKK, then I suggest checking with QR.24 Aug 2017
Thanks for this – very comprehensive indeed!
It does appear that the choice is still only from the ‘On-Board’ menu, no ‘specials’ but at least there will be an opportunity to peruse the options before the flight and (almost) guarantee availability.
I must add that in many years of flying in J&F with Qatar I have never failed to get my first choice off the menu – quality is sometimes another matter sadly.
I await November with anticipation!
