it's mandatory for airlines to become acknowledged as an airline.
Could you please refer where does it say that? My reading of $6.1.5 definitely doesn't mean that.

It is reasonable to WANT it to be good, but it is unrealistic and therefore unreasonable to EXPECT that it will be good. It will not be good.

No, it is not unrealistic. I have received good meals on flights more than once. So, yes, it is possible, it is doable and it is not unreasonable to expect either.

The reference is a document with requirements. If an airline wants to obtain an IATA "code", it well have to adhere to the IATA requirements.

I never checked that in detail, though I think, an airline goes into a signed agreement with IATA to obtain an IATA "code" and part of that agreement will be the adoption of the IATA requirements, of which part is laid out in the referred document.

Lacto-Ovo Vegetarian meal Cathay shorthaul

Lacto-Ovo Vegetarian (LVML) meal on this Cathay flight from HKG - SGN (Hong Kong to Saigon)

Scrambled eggs with ratatouille and potato wedges.
Sides were apricot yofhurt pot and fresh fruit salad.

The main didnít have much flavour and required lots of salt and pepper. The rest were ok.

A Club Europe breakfast meal on BA short haul would beat this if I am honest.

Looks good! Like many other airport catering, regardless of what class we r travelling, we will get the same vege meal for the day.

Low-Fat meal in Business class

I flew SGN - HKG. I always order a Low Fat meal when I want to eat something healthy on the plane.





Meal was delicious. Chicken breast and veggies starter with lemon dressing.
Main was steam cod, tomato sauce, mash potato and veggies.

No SPML dessert loaded.

I recently requested the asian vegetarian meal. Anyone have comments/photos as to what to expect? My flights will be a breakfast and Lunch rotation for my flights.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers!

Sorry @gpia I didn't have a photo of my neighbour's CHML child meal. The main was farfalle bolognese. The kid also got a tetra pack of juice and macadamia nuts cookie with a starter (but I didn't know what the starter was). The kid barely touched the meal.

Ordered CHML again for my upcoming flights to ICN. Farfalle Bolognese would be just fine with me. Beats porkwithrice any day
