Dining menus on Cathay Pacific

Whether you’re travelling in Economy, Premium Economy, Business or First, our onboard dining experience allows you to explore the world as you’re flying above it. Choose from evocative flavours from around the globe or tastes of home when you dine with us, all while staying invigorated with our wellness-focused options. 

With our Choose My Meal service, passengers flying in Business on long-haul routes can pre-select their prefered inflight meal ahead of their flight. This new service is being progressively launched on all long-haul routes.

Meal options may vary depending on route, availability and operational requirements.

In First Class, you can order from an à la carte menu at your convenience throughout the flight. You will be able to choose from our international or contemporary Asian signature dishes, or opt for a light and healthy meal which has been specially designed by renowned celebrity chefs, on selected routes.

Our crew will guide you through the menu and make recommendations from our award-winning wine selection to perfectly complement your meal.
