Better food for bmi passengers

Airline bmi has revealed that it has improved the in-flight menus it will offer to long-haul passengers this summer.

Currently, the airline flies direct to Antigua, Barbados, Chicago and Las Vegas from Manchester International Airport and direct to Riyadh and Jeddah from London's Heathrow.

Now passengers on these flights will be able to enjoy meals which have been carefully planned to take advantage of seasonal produce and current culinary trends.

"We change our menus every four months on the long-haul routes. This is to ensure that our product remains fresh and keeps up with culinary developments," explained Lisa Meredith, marketing manager at bmi.

Jack Bradley, bmi's chef in the business cabin, added: "I am looking forward to cooking the new summer dishes. I enjoy getting first hand feedback from passengers when we serve their meals.

"Airline food has a very poor reputation but we pride ourselves on our menus at bmi and have proved that airline food does not have to be unhealthy or bland."

Passengers flying in economy and premium economy cabins will be able to enjoy dishes such as macaroni cheese with sundried tomatoes and premium economy passengers will also be able to chose from the complimentary wine list.

bmi operates over 2,000 flights a week and holds 11 per cent of all take off and landing slots at Heathrow.
