Air Europa offer one of the best business class dining experiences in Europe I believe. Big call to make, but I genuinely think they’re up there with the best. I’ve flown them before, and you can read that review right here. I came across their meals by accident on my last trip with them in 2016; I had no idea that they had invested so much effort into their meals. It’s all about healthy eating with produce that’s not only high quality and eco-friendly but also designed and served in a very innovative way. The service ware and meal trays are all made from recyclable material too!

Their product has won a few awards, and those awards are well deserved.

Anyway onto this flight, I had to get to Madrid for work, so I decided it was time to book Air Europa once again, as I wanted to check out their meals one more time.


My flight was severely delayed, upon landing in Frankfurt the inbound aircraft encountered a mechanical failure of some sort. Initially, the delay was a few hours, it then turned out to be around 8 hours! It was handled very well by the ground staff, as I was in business class for this flight I ended up spending most of my time in the lounge at Frankfurt airport. In the end, I ended up catching their second flight to Madrid later that day which departed at around 8 pm I think. Was a very long day indeed.

The photo doesn’t do it justice, bad lighting. But this meal did not disappoint at all. I love the use of the tray here, the fresh bread bag, salt and pepper shakers and of course the use of the preserving jars what a great idea…!


For lunch on my return flight to Frankfurt Air Europa offered a lovely tray consisting of Caesar salad, vegetables in honey cream, grilled baby potatoes, cajun chicken, rocket all served with a delicious flan.

Service started with pre-meal drinks as well as a copy of the inflight menu. Inflight menus are becoming extinct on other airlines, so it’s nice to see some airlines still handing them out on short haul flights.

I hope that Air Europa continue these amazing meals inflight, it’s great to see airlines investing in their product and thinking about the whole concept. Well done!
