bmi diamond club - Sample 'special menu' contents?
Jul 22, 12, 3:20 am
Bit OT, but looking for the *A experience on which special menu choices to consider making for our 9 and 11 yo on an upcoming redemption. I'm undecided on whether to go for 'standard' or 'child' meal for them.
Does the airline (AC ex-CDG/LH ex-JFK for our long segments) decide the menu, or the Gate Gourmet type station provider? And do sample menu contents exist?
It is in J class, so I'm assuming there'll be enough bread rolls and cheese if push comes to shove, but it'd be nice if they enjoyed a proper meal.

Wouldn't the Air Canada and Miles & More forums would be the place to ask? I'm sure there's probably several threads on the topic in each forum already if you search.....

Part of my uncertainty is whether the airline or airport affects the meal content. And I thought there might be some IATA type standards that someone might know about.
I'll dig deeper with my searches...

I'd agree that you're asking this in the wrong place, but FWIW, the LH kids meals my son & daughter were served last year seemed pretty similar departing both FRA and SIN.
Surely the question is whether your kids will be more comfortable with kids food or adult stuff. You'll know how adaptable your kids are and I'd say that's the best solution. If they're going to revolt over something like pesto, then go for the kid meal.

That's interesting, so maybe its more airline specified than I'd realised, and hence didn't go for a 'relevant' airline.
An FT search did find references to some airlines' offerings (but not LH or AC), which seemed to be the type of stuff they've never eaten regularly - burgers, chicken nuggets, etc.
So on reflection the child menu would probably be too bland/uncreative for them. They do enjoy good adult dining, and we'll take our chances with the standard offerings.
Apologies to all who found it too OT.

Many moons ago, the Air Canada child's meal was a rather limp and soggy Wendy's burger. I'd like to think airline meals have improved a little bit in the past 20-odd years, though!
