Cocktail & Meal Service

Warm almonds and Krug. Krug is only offered in first class but since it was my birthday, the crew was delighted to offer me a glass of Krug as a good gesture! I was also offered a bottle of Krug to take home but unfortunately I declined due to fear that the bottle might break. I rather not have Krug spilled over or bits of glass everywhere. I would have gladly accepted if this was HKG-JFK.


Menu for today (2 main courses and a light meal consisting of soup offered)

Starter: Smoked salmon with seasonal salad and balsamic vinaigrette

Main course: Pan fried beef tenderloin with portabella mushroom cabernet sauce, red skin potato mash, roasted zucchini, banana squash and carrots. Once again, I chose the steak.


Another close-up of the steak with a hint of red.


Dessert: Chocolate raspberry and hazelnut cake and fresh seasonal fruit with more Krug before I hit the hay!


After I finished my meal, I freshened up and hit the hay for most of the flight. When I woke up, we were cruising over Jeju Island, South Korea and breakfast was being served.


A nice hot cup of HK style milk tea


Breakfast Menu (3 main courses offered)

Fruit platter with croissant and muffin


Main course: Scrambled egg with chive on Canadian bacon, Cajun pork sausage, Lyonnaise potatoes and grilled tomatoes.
