On a recent flight from Milan to Athens we take a closer look at the Aegean Airlines business class meals. Aegean says on their printed business class meal menu “The journey begins with an exploration of Greek cuisine and wine.” This Greek airline even uses the services of a Master of Wine to help select the right Greek wines to pair with your inflight meal.

Whilst Chef Nikos Sarantos selects quality, fresh and wholesome Greek products that go into making your airline meal that little bit tastier.


For such a short flight, the airline food offering is phenomenal!  The appetiser is a traditional Greek salad with capers and virgin olive oil and the options to choose from for the main meals include two options. Chicken with a green bean stew with tomatoes and wine or Perch fillet in a herbed tomato and vegetable sauce. We take the Perch fillet! Along with the Perch fillet, Feta cheese as well as Gruyere cheese and dried fruits are served. The presentation of each meal is of a very high standard.

Of course for dessert is like eating something at a local homemade cafe in Greece just simply perfect! Last but not least you need a coffee to help digest everything you just ate and the cabin crew finally offer a Greek coffee service.




Hands down one of the nicest and most cultured inflight meal experiences we have had in a while. What a nice way to start your trip to Greece by sampling some of the local meals even before you arrive!
