Emirates will offer special inflight offering during Eid Al Adha

Posted 6 August 2019 · Add Comment

Emirates is bringing the spirit of Eid Al Adha to its customers with a special inflight offering from the 11th to the 14th of August.

 

Eid Al Adha is one of the most significant dates in the Islamic calendar, and one of the holiest celebrations. The name translates to ‘festival of the sacrifice,’ and it marks the end of the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca. Around the world, Eid Al Adha is usually celebrated with loved ones.

To celebrate the getting together of family and friends, an Eid menu with a touch of Middle Eastern hospitality will be served on board the Emirates A380 lounge. This includes Arabic coffee, a date cake and a selection of Emirati pastries. Chocolates in a specially designed Eid box from UAE- based gourmet chocolatiers, Forrey & Galland, will also be served to all customers in premium classes on all routes.

A special menu with Arabic flavours will be introduced during the celebrations for customers in all classes. Depending on the route, customers in Economy Class could sample Emirates’ signature dish, a Chicken or Lamb Machbous, and enjoy a date cake for dessert.

In First and Business Class, customers have the choice of Lamb or Chicken Ouzi, a rice dish popular in the Gulf where the meat is slow cooked with roasted nuts and raisins. A special Emirati-style King Fish with rice will also be offered select routes in Africa and Europe. These mains are complemented with an Arabic salad and premium customers can also choose from various Arabic desserts including chocolate fondant with labneh ice cream, date and almond nammoura made from semolina, or khabees served with Arabic coffee sauce and pistachio cream.
