Iberia launches new Business Plus fine dining options
Friday 18, June 2010
Having installed new lounge seats that unfold into horizontal beds, Iberia is continuing its upgrade of its intercontinental Business Plus seating class with an all-new meal service. Master chef Sergi Arola has designed a different menu offering for every month.
The Spanish airline will offer the new service to business passengers departing from Madrid on intercontinental flights. Master chef Sergi Arola has designed 12 new offerings of Mediterranean cuisine, one for each month, using the finest and freshest ingredients.
Each menu offers a choice of three newly designed main dishes, along with an assortment of hors d'oeuvres and desserts. On night flights leaving Madrid, new light suppers are also available, which resemble the three-course lunch offering.
Pedro Ximénez whites and sherries have been added to the wine list, which features a selection of exquisite whites, reds, and sparkling cavas from the various Spanish growing regions, and they are changed every three months.
Iberia's Business Plus has set a new standard of quality and service for business travellers. Even before the latest upgrade, the Skytrax air travel consultancy company awarded it four of a possible five stars, and gave it the top marks for comfort –in both seated and sleeping mode– and for the length of the seat.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
