Qantas First Class meals

15 10 2016

I was fortunate to get a points upgrade to First Class on my recent Qantas flight from Sydney to Dallas Fort Worth. For those who want to experience this vicariously, read on. I’ve described the general First Class amenities and experience before (, so this time I’ve just concentrated on the food served in the air.

You get two meals on this long flight — dinner and breakfast — and can snack in between, if you so wish. In First and Business Class you get a menu for your meal and beverage selections (different menu for each class, I think).

This was the menu on my flight:

Drinks menu (not including wine):


Dinner menu:

There was also a breakfast menu on one of the pages (not shown as the photo was too fuzzy).

Everyone in First Class received both canapes on a single plate, along with a glass of French Champagne:


For my dinner, I chose the pumpkin soup, followed by the seared Blue Eye, and then the chocolate and raspberry dessert:




The Blue Eye was just a tad dry, but everything was delicious — as expected, based on my previous experiences.

I’m in central Michigan for a few days, visiting family. The trees in central Michigan have only just started to turn colour for fall. They are probably two to three weeks from peak¬†colour.

But this morning the first frost of the 2016-2017 winter was evident. There were clear skies last night and equally clear skies today. I took some photos as the sun peaked over the horizon.
