    Wow, these menus sound terrific – a huge step up from what was on offer on my most recent (not luxury) flight with Malaysia Airlines. On both legs of the return journey they offered a ‘choice’ of chicken this or, erm, chicken that.

    I know they need to avoid certain foods especially non-halal (eg pork products) and many Buddhists don’t eat beef, but surely they could have more imagination than to offer chicken or chicken. How about vegetarian, fish, ostrich, seafood, lamb options? I’m sick of chicken or chicken. Grrr.
