Emirates Airlines Vegan Meals
In fact in November 2018 we took a Emirates flight from Newcastle upon Tyne to Singapore via Dubai and had we obviously requested vegan options, unfortunately I can not share any photos as I forgot to take any photos, but I remember they were fairly good (at least as far as airline food can be), in fact even the butter was dairy free with vegan logo’s everywhere. I noticed while on our connecting flight the number of people that had ordered a vegan meal, was taken a back to be honest.
Emirates has recently released statistics for the month of January which show the requests for vegan meals has skyrocketed, in fact they have recorded over a 40% increase. Over 20,000 vegan meals were served.
From talking to people of social media I have found that Emirates is very popular airline in the vegan community, possibly due to its quality vegan options. Emirates airlines have said it has over 170 vegan recipes to offer its growing vegan customer base, they are also surprised by the huge growth within a fairly short time period, they said the vegan option is one of the most common special meal requests they get.
Some of the options available include Spinach Ragout with brown rice, Vegetable Tagine with couscous, and sweet Potato and Mushroom Ravioli, also Emirates started to offer a vegan cheese option .
Emirates has raised the bar when it comes to the vegan options and hopefully other airlines will follow by offering more quality foods in the future.
