If you're already hoping for a luxe New Year's vacation, why not plan a trip to Dubai? Book directly with Emirates, which operates daily, non-stop flights from Fort Lauderdale, and you can rest assured your trip from start to finish will be a memorable one. And although in-flight dining might not always be the highlight of the trip on other airlines, the chefs at Emirates are making sure guests are treated to inventive and health-conscious dining using fresh and locally sourced ingredients. Here, we highlight a few in-flight delights that will not only make it easy for travelers to stick to their New Year's health goals, but will also ensure they arrive at their destinations feeling truly pampered.
As you unwind in your First Class suite (which includes a mini-bar), take a good look at the extensive dining menu. Whether you need a hot coffee to put a spark in your step or a Kir Royale to calm take-off jitters, there’s something for every type of gourmand. And the experience doesn’t stop there; be prepared to get treated to a hearty, reviving, and on-demand meal, thanks to menu items like roasted lamb rack, asparagus soup, and egg white omelette—to name a few—guaranteed to get you ready to explore a new and exciting city immediately.
Offering an unmatched dining experience, Emirates Business Class flyers can pick and choose from a complete range of complimentary beverages, including Champagne and vintage Port, as well as gourmet dining options. Both lunch and dinner are served as five-course meals, so you’ll never worry about going hungry during your journey. Standout items include grilled chicken, Maryland crab cakes, and fine cheeses—additionally, there are plenty of light bites, appetizing entrees, and addicting desserts to keep Business Class guests occupied before they fully relax in their lie-flat seats.
When you’re taking that much needed vacation, don’t forget to bring your appetite on board. Economy passengers are offered a starter, choice of two main courses, dessert, and other sweet treats after the main course. Plus, counting calories will simply be a non-concern for Economy flyers, especially when you can choose a healthy meal option before your flight. Otherwise, once on board, you can select healthy menu items such as the couscous salad, pan-fried cod, and scrambled eggs with chives for breakfast. After your meal, explore the 2,500 entertainment channels available during the trip, and enjoy complimentary drinks, including wine, spirits, or beer, served throughout the entire journey.
