Be prepared to be dazzled by these amazing inflight meals that I 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.  The airline shut down in 2017.


For our flight from Vienna to Rome, we pre-ordered two meals from the range that FlyNiki offers with each meal costing €14.00. Before takeoff, 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 chicken schnitzel was served piping hot, crumbed to perfection and the breast was moist and tender. I didn’t want to eat the whole schnitzel as I had to sample the antipasti platter,  the platter of prosciutto, mozzarella and grilled vegetables was fresh and delectable, as though the cabin crew had just prepared it in the galley. The chocolate mousse was smooth, creamy and not too sweet while the tiramisu was just exceptional.


As 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!
