Quality cuisine: a Premium Economy meal on Qantas

Select on Q-Eat allows customers to pre-order their meal prior to flying, offering more choice, including an additional dish available as an online exclusive on select routes.

Customers can pre-order their choice of meal between seven days and 12 hours prior to departure via ‘Manage Your Booking’ at

Select on Q-Eat will be progressively rolled out to all international flights on which Premium Economy is offered.

The service is currently available  for Premium Economy passengers on flights from Dallas and Los Angeles to Australia, and from October, Qantas will extend Select on Q-Eat to Premium Economy on all flights between Australia, London and Dubai.

Qantas Executive Manager International Customer Experience Alison Webster said she was pleased to introduce Select on Q-Eat to customers travelling in Premium Economy.

“Our aim is to provide our customers with a personalised experience when they fly with us,” she said.

“The Select on Q-Eat offering in Business has been very well received since its introduction last year.

“Our customers tell us they enjoy the ability to confirm their meal choice prior to their flight, or to advise us in advance that their priority is to maximise their rest on board, and have their bed made up by our Cabin Crew directly after take-off,” she said.

Qantas also continues to progressively roll out Select on Q-Eat for customers travelling in Business internationally, including from last week, for customers travelling in Business from Narita, Shanghai, Manila, Bangkok, Jakarta and Honolulu to Australia.

In exciting news, Select on Q-Eat will be extended to customers travelling internationally in Economy from late 2013.

Among its other in flight enhancements, Qantas has also announced the extension of the Neil Perry Rockpool Market Inspirations currently offered in its onshore First lounges to customers onboard in First, on flights departing Sydney.

Each Market Inspirations plate is inspired by seasonal produce and changes every four to six weeks in flight.  The plate is available in addition to the onboard menu and will be matched with one of Qantas’ premium Australian wines.

The first plate is a blood orange and asparagus salad with king prawns dressed with a simple classic blood orange vinaigrette. To mark the launch of Market Inspirations in flight, the plate will be paired with the limited edition 2004 Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Rose.
