Talking about inflight meal options
 
With both CX 888 & 889 are passed mid-night flights.
Would like to know in business class what kind of snacks on demand that they offer?

If I select one a main dish and I really do not like it;
can I ask for something else later on?
Did they all come as it is in a dish?
Can you ask for two desserts?

I am greedy right!

Thanks.

If they have spares, you may ask for extras. But if the flight is full, and everyone is eating, then you might have to wait till everyone is served before you get extras.

I don't know about the extra dessert though.

Interesting. They never used to serve the caviar and salmon out of YVR on the CX 889. Is this a new thing? Do they still offer it on the JFK-YVR leg?
