China airlines meal options in the past have included collaborations with Michelin star chefs such as Albert Tse who has designed and created inflight meals for First and Business class passengers. In the summer of 2018, the airline partnered with a well-known Italian gelato brand for the first time to offer a range of classic low-fat gelato as dessert in all classes on European routes. The airline has introduced a trayless meal service on shorter routes as part of its corporate responsibility plan.
