Is it so? When visiting Finnair Kitchen I understood that short haul mains were coming from German frozen, but starters and long haul mains were made in their own kitchen.

This is correct, yes.

Not eating fish (plainly because I just don’t like the smell / taste of it) I’m very focused on how much fish is actually served on AY, and it seems like all other options run out before fish does...

Now, I don´t fly AY J because of the food - if food was the sole (get the joke?) reason - I would never in a million years fly AY.

My understanding was that some of the longhaul dishes were German stuff, too. But I'm not going to argue here, perhaps it was a misunderstanding.

Chef's gourmet has been really terrible last two times, though, I guess it's time to give up and switch to fish.
I like their fish starters also a lot, it’s just that with the pre-meal champagne/cocktail/water/etc I’d prefer quality peanuts over a ”one bite” fishy amuse bouche...that was my point..

Looking at my HEL-DEL preorder options, the veggie option Paneer Butteer Dal Jamavar is exactly the same as they served on DXB-HEL and most certainly not AY-made. Also, option 3 is Chicken breast in youghurt sauce, tabbouleh and ochre, and somehow I find it hard to believe AY Kitchen would use such exotic ingredients...

I wonder what the case here really is. Probably not too easy to find out, though.
