On Wednesday (May 22, 2024), Alaska Airlines announced that starting today, Premium Class and Main Cabin guests traveling on flights over 1,100 miles will be able to choose from up to five chef-curated meals, including at least one hot meal choice.  Complementing the carrier’s freshly prepared food options, such as their popular Signature Fruit and Cheese Platter, the hot meals will only be available for pre-order purchase.  Over the last few months, Alaska Airlines’ Food & Beverage teams have been working to elevate the carrier’s already premium inflight meals, including the expansion of hot meal options on most medium and long-haul flights.

In Wednesday’s announcement, Alaska Airlines' Managing Director – Guest Products, Todd Traynor-Corey, said,

“We’re known for an inflight menu that is more thoughtfully curated with care. For a while now, our guests have often asked us if we’re ever going to bring back hot meals in the Main Cabin.  It’s been difficult to keep it a secret – but for more than a year, our team has quietly worked behind the scenes taste testing the best hot food options with our culinary chef and creating a West Coast-inspired menu. Now no matter where they sit, guests will get to taste our world class food and beverages.” 


During the last couple of months, Alaska has collaborated with Chef Tony Wright, who has collaborated with the carrier’s LSG Sky Chefs locations worldwide.  Chef Tony’s experience comes from the flavorful tapestry of London’s hotel restaurant scene. His culinary ingenuity continues to elevate the guest gastronomic experience, setting new standards of excellence aloft.  Prior to today’s menu launch, Alaska team members taste-tested the new meal options, and provided honest feedback.

Commenting on the culinary collaboration, Chef Tony Wright, said,


“It was important to the Alaska team to create a menu based on guest feedback. The creative process of selecting meals that made the most sense for the West Coast-based airline and then sourcing the freshest ingredients was a labor of love for all of us who were involved in developing this menu.  This airline truly cares about creating a premium onboard experience and we hope everyone experiences that with every bite of their food.”
