I take a flight with Monarch Airlines from Corfu to Manchester to sample their latest inflight meals which were launched back in 2014. The airline is no longer operating.

HOW TO ORDER MEALS ON MONARCH

Usually, you can order meals at the time of booking your ticket or you can call the airlines reservation centre after making your booking and their staff will assist.

I paid the 8 pounds and was given no meal choice instead I was told that I would receive a choice of meals inflight. It’s worth noting that passengers who pre-order a meal on Monarch will generally be served first and these meals include a free cup of tea or coffee.

THE MEAL

Firstly you are given the ‘Divine Meals’ box which on this flight contained an Apple Pudding Dessert, Mini Cheese Box, Wholemeal Bread, and Butter. In addition to this meal box you will also receive your hot inflight meal; the choices were the Chicken Korma or Cider Sausages, I was in the mood for something international and the Chicken Korma it was.

WHAT WAS GOOD

While looks can be deceiving the Chicken Korma dish was actually very tasty and authentic, the chicken was moist, the potatoes were cooked well, the rice was not too dry, and the Naan Bread was delicious. I’ve eaten quite a few Indian dishes inflight and find that Indian dishes work well and taste great at 35,000ft, so if there is ever an Indian dish on the menu order it.
