I'd get/do get better food on an airline from without the Middle East but all things considered (i.e. direct flights from GLA to MEL) it ticks enough boxes for me. I know they wouldn't for logistical reasons and probably religious reasons but how about a halal and a non-halal menu? They serve alcoholic drink after all so tenuous religious reasons for sticking to halal. For discussion purposes you understand.
All restaurants in the UAE serve halal beef/lamb/chicken... and there's very good European, Australian, NZ, etc meat. So it's more about EK's catering or sourcing rather than whether it's halal or not.
