Cathay Pacific are very much a full service airline, and as such they have a full menu on board, even in economy.

Cathay Pacific Business Class inflight meals

Cathay Pacific Inflight food SYD to HKG July 2014

Seafood Starter

Salmon and cream cheese parcel, prosciutto with melon, radish garnish.

Caprese salad with fetta. Garlic bread.

A great way to start the flight - unless you are one of the one in ten people who doesn't like seafood. In which case you'll be out of luck!

Kunged Chicken

Kung Po chicken with mushrooms and peanuts.

Steamed rice and stir-fried kalian stalks.

This looks like a basic economy meal, but it is really great.

It tastes good, and has lots of flavour, particularly the brocoli like kalian leaves.

Cheese board

Maffra Sage Derby cheese, Jindi Blue cheese, Tasmanian Heritage Brie.

These are all great cheeses, but again Cathays' desire to cut costs with the small servings - and often the request that you select either the cheese board, or the main desert, but not both.

Frangipane

Apple, prune and walnut frangipane with creme angalise.

Frangipane is very much a French food traditional associated with Christmas, and curiously Cathay Pacific often serve it during advent.

And very good it is too.

Fruit bowl

One slice of melon, one qaurter strawberry, one banana (slice).

Good grief. Eat it quickly before it evaporates.

Don't order the fruit bowl if you are hungry!
