During 2017 I flew KLM many times across Europe and was lucky enough to fly in business class. KLM collaborates with some well-established brands and restaurants to create some fantastic products in their business class cabin. More importantly, the crew are always lovely, friendly and very down to earth.
On an early departure from Amsterdam to Paris, the crew managed to serve everyone with ease. I was offered a light breakfast of yoghurt, fresh fruit, jam, Cumin cheese, Beemster cheese and sliced pastrami. Considering the flight time this breakfast offering was more than adequate.
I received this fantastic meal on this 3+ hour flight between Malaga and Amsterdam. The entire meal was delivered at once making it easy for the crew to distribute it was created by Ciel Blue a 2 Michelin star restaurant in Amsterdam.
The starter was a pearl pasta with dried Angus beef, followed by tandoori salmon with coconut rice and cilantro beans. A side of Dutch cheese and a very delicious raspberry chocolate dessert. A fantastic meal, probably one of the better business class meals I’ve eaten on long journeys in Europe.
On a two hour flight from Vienna to Amsterdam, I was not expecting a hot meal service. I was the only passenger in business class and the purser was very attentive. She started to ask about my connecting flight and my travel plans and then noticed I was taking a lot of photos. She was curious why someone would want to photograph the airline food offering, I explained what I do, and she was genuinely interested.
She then offered to bring me another meal tray (from the previous flight) for additional photos; she later came out with extra snacks and wine. We chatted for quite a while, and it was probably the most enjoyable of all my flights with KLM.
An oriental style beetroot salad with smoked trout and muhammara, with a gem salad with sesame chicken skewer, boiled egg, tomato and pine nuts. For dessert a Yuzu citrus mousse, the meal was enjoyable and delicious.
Some great meal experiences with KLM, I enjoy flying with them, the meal trays in business class are well designed and meals on offer are great quality.
