Today I take a closer look at the Hong Kong Airlines Meals, specifically those in Business Class. This short hop from Taipei to Hong Kong will take approximately 1 hr and 20 mins aboard flight HX 283 which is operated by an Airbus A330 aircraft.

Hong Kong Airlines offers free meals and drinks to all customers regardless of their cabin class.

WHAT’S ON THE MENU?

The choices for this flight included;

Chicken with Potatoes and Western Vegetables or Pork with Fried Rice and Vegetables.

I chose the Pork, which was served with a Fruit Salad, a Chocolate Mousse Cake and the airlines signature Cranberry Cake.

Normally menus are distributed to all passengers in business class, however, on this flight, the cabin crew apologised for not having any inflight menus to distribute.

The crew doesn’t use any inflight trolleys in Business Class to deliver the food to everyone, and everything was served by hand.

WHAT WAS GOOD

The cabin crew were very attentive and ever so pleasant, nothing was a problem. I loved the attention to detail that went into my meal tray and felt that the quantity of food served (for such a short flight) was very generous.

NOT SO GOOD

My main meal was served quite cold, so I asked for the meal to be re-heated, and the cabin crew came back with a new hot meal after ten minutes.

HOW ABOUT ECONOMY CLASS MEALS?

I asked to see what was being served in economy class.  A meal of fried rice (served in a foil dish) with water and the signature cranberry cake was distributed to everyone in economy. If you like you can view the video of my experience below.
