Etihad launches 24×7 World Class Dining Experience while Onboard

It was a rainy morning when we visited Miascor Catering in Paranaque with fellow food bloggers and friends from TV and print media to taste the first class onboard culinary offerings of Etihad Airways.

After a couple of security checks, we finally entered the Miascor’s facility – an inflight catering service provider located at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Paranaque City.

I always fly with Philippine Airlines when I go out of the country so I never had the chance to compare different airlines’ onboard food service. In the recent years, Inflight food services for most airlines have suffered due to cost cutting measures and unfortunately food and beverages are first to be slashed according to aviation news.

After listening to Juan Torres (Etihads country manager) presentation, I was amazed on how Etihad and Miascor managed to provide such an extensive choice of food for their passengers.

“Etihad’s new F&B managers have a background in the hospitality industry, mostly from five-star dining establishments. Their extensive knowledge of menu composition, presentation and quality will ensure that our onboard dining experience meets the highest standards,” he said.

However the concept also extends to the style of service delivery (crew language and interaction) and the elegant, minimalist glassware, cutlery, crockery and linen.
