The New Flavor of Fiji Airways is Straight Out of the Tropics
Traveling across the Pacific on Fiji Airways is always exciting, since there's a 100% chance you'll end up in paradise after the welcome "bula!" Starting this summer, the Fijian hospitality onboard increases, as the airline enhances their in-flight meal offering to offer a more "Fijian-style" signature dish for the entire plane.
In business class, passenger looking to get into the island spirit will be greeted with a signature welcome drink (featuring Fijian rum) or a mocktail. Once airborne, the cushy seats will be treated to an hors d’oeuvres service and a selection of fine wines. A taste of the islands comes during the main course with a signature dish from Fiji's own, Lance Seeto, head chef of Castaway Island Resort.
Even better, travelers in economy aren't left out of enjoying the local menu. From LA, passengers in the back will be treated to two hot meals with a Fijian-style menu similar to that of Business Class. The greatest part of this news is that economy class gets the Fijian flavor first, since the update has already taken effect, whereas Business will have a to wait a bit before the menu swap.
Along with the food improvement, the airline is upgrading its in-flight entertainment to make it complimentary in all classes, plus refreshing their in-flight magazine and expanding their duty-free offerings. By the end of the year, passengers heading to and from the island nation will not only get to taste Fijian specialties onboard, but also buy them before landing.
