AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION-(C)1997-2005 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

American Airlines is to introduce new First Class and Business Class menus on flights between the United States and Europe.

The new menus will reportedly be part of a series of moves to enhance the customer service experience on international flights and the new menus include appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts reflecting European and American tastes.

American Airlines has said that, on 1 August, flights from Europe to the US began featuring menu items created from European ingredients and recipes, and starting on 1 September US flights bound for Europe will feature American cuisine.

The airline said that for the US menu the new Business Class appetizers include citrus-marinated scallops, coppa ham with mozzarella, and shrimp marinated in mojito sauce served with pineapple and Boston watercress with zucchini, mushroom and yellow bell peppers. The new entrees include cowboy steak with red chili onions and corn-bean ragout, lamb shank with an ale tomato sauce, chicken Madeira, and pumpkin ravioli with sage cream sauce. Seasonal vegetables such as grilled yellow squash, sauteed spinach, sun-dried tomatoes and artichoke bottoms with chive-whipped potatoes accompany the main dishes. Desserts include an ice cream sundae or poached pears in a pecan crust.

The European menu includes appetizers such as apple soy marinated beef served with horseradish cream and thin potatoes, portobello mushroom carpaccio and smoked sesame salmon with sweet chili cucumber. Main courses include roasted fillet of cod with eggplant puree, seared fillet of beef with porcini mushroom butter and bordelaise sauce, roasted chicken with eggplant confit, and goat cheese and red pepper cappelletti pasta, to name a few. For dessert there are peaches in amaretto sauce served with biscotti stuffing.
