Impossible Burger Sliders Added to Air New Zealand’s In-Flight Menu
As the Impossible Burger has been “extremely popular with customers,” Air New Zealand has added the Impossible Burger to another one of its North American routes!
Air New Zealand’s Inflight Customer Experience Manager Niki Chave states:
“The Impossible Burger has been a real favourite. Given we’re heading into a seasonal menu change in Business Premier we couldn’t resist sharing the experience with customers travelling on another of our North American routes while also giving it a bit of a twist.”
“Our Impossible Burger is a really generously sized serving, so this time around we’re taking the opportunity to make it a bit lighter by serving it as bite sized sliders. The dish will include three Impossible Burger sliders accompanied by tomato jalapeno chutney, sundried tomato mayo with buttermilk slaw and vegetable crisps on the side.”
The burger is served with two patties, which are described as “meat that isn’t meat, but which might just be better,” along with lettuce, tomato, caramelized onions, beetroot relish, smoked Gouda cheese and tomatillo cream.
In-flight customer experience manager Niki Chave stated:
“We’re confident vegetarians, flexitarians and dedicated meat lovers alike will enjoy the delicious taste of the Impossible Burger – but for those who want to stay with the tried and true it will sit alongside our regular selection of menu items prepared by our talented culinary team and consultant chefs.”
With this move, Air New Zealand becomes the first airline in the world to serve the Impossible Burger. It will be available to business class passengers on flights NZ1 and NZ5 from Los Angeles to Auckland through late October. According to The Telegraph, the airline will then be “reviewing the burger’s popularity.”
