Itake a domestic flight in Turkey to sample some Pegasus Airlines meals and check out some other meals at their Airline Catering Supplier.

Could these meals be the most delicious inflight meals ever tasted on a low-cost airline?

ARE MEALS INCLUDED?

Meals are included depending on the type of airfare that you book.

For example, if you book the cheapest ticket which is called “Essentials”, you will not receive any meals or drinks.

However, passengers booking “Advantage” fare levels will receive a sandwich and a drink, while passengers who book “Extras” fare levels will receive hot meals and drinks on international flights and sandwiches and beverages on domestic flights.

WHAT’S ON THE MENU?

The airline offers an extensive range of pre-order meals including Chicken Schnitzel, Sushi, a great variety of Salads, Hot Breakfast Trays, Cakes and my favourite The Steak!  If you forget to pre-order a meal, you can still make purchases inflight, but you will miss out on these delicious meals.

WHAT DID I EAT?

On my very short one hour flight from Izmir to Istanbul, I sampled the following meal: The Inflight Steak – A Grilled Fillet of Beef served with Grilled Vegetables, and Potato Bake followed by a Traditional Turkish Style Salad and Chocolate Cake. Condiments included: Bread and Salad Dressing.  If that wasn’t enough, I also tried: The Chicken Caesar Salad.

THE VERDICT?

Pretty amazing for inflight meals on a low cost airline. Usually, steaks eaten inflight can be tough and tasteless, and this steak was far from that. It had flavour and moisture, the vegetables were crisp, and the dessert was delicious.

BEHIND THE SCENES

I was also lucky to sample more of their other pre-order meals in Istanbul at the Do & Co inflight catering kitchen at Istanbul Airport. The inflight Sushi is available on select flights and will set you back around €12.00  it’s created at the airlines catering facility by a proper Sushi Chef, and all of it is made from scratch. And the taste? Wonderful and Authentic.

The Chicken Schnitzel dish will set you back around €9.00 and comes with Baked Potatoes, a Side Salad as well as the delicious Chocolate Mousse. The quality is really amazing for such a meal; it’s great to see such quality meals.

PLEASE NOTE

A big thanks to Pegasus Airlines who supplied my inflight meals and allowed me to check out some of their other dishes at their Catering Centre in Istanbul.
