Self-Service Snacks

Cabin: Business, Premium Economy and Economy

In between meals and craving a snack before you land in Australia? The self-service snack area is packed with tasty treats and is open whenever the plane is at cruising altitude.

The menu on Qantas flights from London to Melbourne forms a restaurant in the sky dining experience at 33,000 feet.

No airline is more committed to food quality than Qantas, which continues a longstanding partnership with renowned Australian, Qantas Consulting Chef Neil Perry and the Rockpool team to design and inspire the dishes served inflight.

The two-leg journey that connects the UK with Victoria leaves you plenty of time to delight in Qantas’ outstanding meals. Menus in First and Business are seasonal and showcase the best ingredients of the season, while the menus in Premium Economy and Economy are updated regularly to reflect modern food trends. Dishes are designed using ingredients that are sourced locally from the port or the surrounding region.  Click through the slideshow on the left to see a few samples of recent meals that have been served on flights between London and Melbourne.

Don’t just take our word for it.  UK followers of the Visit Melbourne Facebook page had this to say about Qantas’ acclaimed inflight food:

I love Qantas, best airline and best refreshments, I am well travelled and speak from experience.
