Emirates is ensuring passengers feel festive for the whole month of December, with seasonal food in its lounges at Dubai International Airport and onboard.
The airline’s Business Class lounges are serving mince pies, traditional Stollen cake, soaked and spiced lady fingers with a Christmas dulce-whipped ganache, and roasted chestnut and biscuit cake with a pop of lime and lemon sable. First Class lounges also have winter favourites including gingerbread profiteroles, dark chocolate salted caramel tarts and cinnamon baba au orange. Around the globe, Emirates lounges will be offering festive treats too, with local favourites taking centre stage.
Meanwhile, Emirates is also offering festive meals and snacks in all cabins on select routes. First and Business Class passengers can indulge in lemon and herb marinated king prawns with fennel salad and marie rose sauce, and cured salmon gravadlax with mustard crème fraiche to start. A full festive main course with all the trimmings is available in all three classes. Desserts include Christmas pudding, festive ginger cake, or a redcurrant chocolate mousse cake in the shape of Santa.
In the onboard A380 lounge, passengers departing Dubai can relax with some fragrantly spiced mulled wine, mince pies, panettone, gingerbread ice cream, and Christmas themed pastries.
From 24 to 26 December, Emirates cabin crew will be offering mini gifts of cinnamon cream profiteroles, chocolate truffles and gingerbread Christmas trees and snowmen, to all passengers onboard.
Finally, all children onboard will be gifted with an Emirates giveaway suitable for their age group, while cabin crew will take polaroids and share them in a festive-themed keepsake frame.
