Emirates is marking Thanksgiving later this month with new holiday menus that will be offered across all classes on board its flights to and from the US.
Special menus will begin being served at Emirates’ US airport lounges from today until November 22, at which point the new on-board menus will become available until November 25.
Exactly what passengers are served depends on their class of travel.
For first and business class passengers, a choice of appetisers will be offered, including: smoked duck salad with poached fig, pickled beetroot, green beans, plum chutney and hazelnuts; cauliflower soup; pumpkin soup; or smoked ocean trout with crème fraiche, cocktail onions and caper berries.
As a main course, a Thanksgiving roasted turkey will be served along with chestnut stuffing, cranberry jus lie, and either potato or pumpkin mash. Dessert is a pumpkin tart with whipped cream, caramel fudge, chocolate quenelle and pistachios, while premium passengers flying on one of Emirates’ Airbus A380 superjumbos can get limited edition pumpkin cupcakes at the onboard lounge.
