AirAsia is best known for its scrumptious inflight meals. Available for purchase at an additional price, flyers can purchase the meal of their choice at a reasonable price. In this post, we would like to share one of our favourite meal on AirAsia, Rice with Beef in Black Sauce.
This is the meal, packed. You will need to wait for about 20 minutes for them to prepare this meal.
The packaging looks inviting, isn’t it?
One of our favourite feature is their attempt in keeping their customers informed – nutritionally. Nutritional value for most meals are written on the package. This helps the customers to be aware of their nutrition consumption, especially those who are being mindful of their calorie consumption.
There is nothing else in the meal, just plain white rice and beef in black sauce. If you are not that into vegetables and would like to have just rice and meat, this is definitely a must-try.
AirAsia in-flight meals can be something to be looked forward to whenever you travel with the budget airline. It “empowers” you to choose your own meal (and of course you have to pay for it).
The pack comes in the usual red-coloured aluminium packaging. The net weight is 260g. Listed ingredients for Roast Chicken with Cream Sauce includes checken, potato, pumpkin, broccoli, carrot, fresh milk, whipped cream, flour, butter, onion, garlic, leek, salt, sugar, chicken powder, spices and herbs.
Allergen information: May contain wheat gluten, dairy, nut, soy, egg and seafood.
If you purchase the combo in advance via the AirAsia website or mobile app, a small container of Spritzer mineral water will be included together in the meal to you for free.
This is the view that you probably would want to see before you order the food. The portion is quite generous for an in-flight food. However, it is only sufficient if you are not looking forward to have a heavy meal due to the absence of rice in the set.
Step 3: For the particular flight that requires a wheelchair service, choose its origin and destination and look at the charges on this page.
For example, you can find the wheelchair charge for flights between Kota Bharu (KBR) to Kuala Lumpur (KUL) will cost you RM 63.60 if you pre-book the service or RM 127.20 if you book it at the counter. So, be smart and book early to lighten up the load on your wallet.
Kuala Lumpur (KUL) to Kuching (KCH): The wheelchair service from Kuala Lumpur to Kuching is RM 63.60 (if you book early) or RM 127.20 (if you book at the counter). Therefore, if you are going to use the wheelchair service, please ensure that you book earlier to avoid the extra charge.
AirAsia will be the first airline in Malaysia to use Required Navigation Performance Authori- sation Required Approach (RNP-AR APCH) technology, as reported by an article in The Star (Malaysia).
The said technology is the advanced form of performance-based navigation (PBN) technology, enabling airlines to shorten the flight distance, reduce amount of fuel used and also noise pollution, especially near airports.
AirAsia has been known for its aggressive cost-cutting measures since its days of inception. The news article also reported that AirAsia hopes that it can save up to RM 1 million a year from the technology.
“By achieving significant mile savings, we are able to save on fuel costs and this could be translated to more low fares for our guests,” – Aireen Omar, AirAsia Bhd Chief Executive Officer (CEO)
LANDASAN: The initiative to embark on a new technology is a good move, especially when it involves cost savings. It’s time to other airlines, especially the ailing ones, to follow suit right?
