It Sure Beats a Turkey and Cheese Sandwich: Virgin America Unveils New Menu
September 18, 2009 at 3:11 PM
We've always dug the snacks, meals and libations on the flights of Virgin America but did you know the menu options were seasonal? Yup, just like a real restaurant changes its menu based on seasonal ingredients that are available, Virgin America has announced their new fall menu for both the main cabin and First Class.
While a reader recently wondered if VA was skimping on snacks in First Class, the menu's meals (created by Chef Luke Morgan) have been given a boost with herb omelets on grilled challah bread, filet of beef with mushrooms, naan Tandoori chicken and a roast turkey breast with sage stuffing. Of course, the options vary from route to route and we're gonna go ahead and say you won't get Tandoori chicken on a an-hour long flight from SFO to LAX.
Additionally, folks flying First Class in the morning will have freshly baked croissants to snack on. The folks immediately behind them in coach will probably want to kill them for flaunting such buttery goodness in their face, but the Main Cabin is getting some new additions as well.
Ordering off the in-flight entertainment system, RED, passengers can now choose a bagel, fresh fruit and yogurt for breakfast, a chicken pesto hand roll for lunch and a Vietnamese Banh mi flat iron beef sandwich for dinner, amongst other sort of snacks like fruit and cheese plates and Stacy's pita chips with chatpata chana and raita dip. Prices range from $7 to $10 unless you've shelled out a little extra for a Main Cabin Select seat, which gives you unlimited snacking and entertainment options to go along with your extra leg room.
