Be prepared to be dazzled by these amazing inflight meals that we recently ate on Austrian based airline FlyNiki. FlyNiki, a subsidiary of Air Berlin, commenced operations back in 2003 when Niki Lauda acquired Aero Lloyd, today Niki no longer operates! They shut down in 2017.

THE MEALS

For our flight from Vienna to Rome, we pre-ordered two meals from the range that FlyNiki offer with each meal costing €14.00. Before take off, a member of the cabin crew team re-confirmed our pre-order meal choices and advised that the meals will be served right after take off.

Like clockwork our meals were delivered by the cabin crew to our seat and included:

Viennese chicken schnitzel with parsley potatoes, a fresh salad with balsamic olive oil dressing and a mousse au chocolate.

An Italian antipasti platter consisting of Prosciutto di Parma with tomato-mozzarella, grilled Mediterranean vegetables, salad and tiramisu.

THE TASTE!

Our chicken schnitzel was served piping hot, crumbed to perfection and the breast was moist and tender. We didn’t want to eat the whole schnitzel as we had to sample the antipasti platter but we just couldn’t stop and devoured the entire meal. Our platter of prosciutto, mozzarella and grilled vegetables was fresh and delectable, as though the cabin crew had just prepared it fresh in the galley. The chocolate mousse was smooth, creamy and not too sweet whilst the tiramisu was just exceptional!

WHAT DID EVERYONE ELSE GET?

As we mentioned earlier the airline will still give you something to eat which is a rarity inflight these days. Most passengers will receive fresh high-quality sandwiches, sometimes with a choice!
