Today we take a closer look at the Hong Kong Airlines Meals, specifically those in Business Class. Our 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?

Our choices for this flight included;

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

We 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 don’t use any inflight trolleys in Business Class to deliver the food to everyone, everything is done by hand.

WHAT WAS GOOD

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

NOT SO GOOD

When our main meal was served to us it was slightly cold. We asked for the meal to be re-heated and the cabin crew came back with a new hot meal for us about ten minutes later.

HOW ABOUT ECONOMY CLASS MEALS?

We had to take a sneak peek to see what our friends in economy class were eating! They received a meal of fried rice (served in a foil dish) with water and the signature cranberry cake. If you like you can view the video of our experience below.
