Cathay Pacific was one of the first airlines to have rice cookers, toasters, and skillets on board which allow cabin crew to prepare freshly cooked rice, toast, and eggs. The airline has just completed an overhaul of their business class meal service which rolled out across their long haul network during 2018 and 2019.
They have created a concept similar to ‘restaurant’ style service, and you’ll notice that there are no longer any trolleys in the cabin, all meals are now plated up by the cabin crew in the galley and delivered by hand to you.
