It’s coming up to the Thanksgiving holiday in the USA this week – and Emirates is introducing a seasonal menu between the 24th to 26th November for those who want to enjoy turkey in the sky.
The menu will be available on flights from Dubai to its US network.
If you’re in First or Business Class, you can enjoy a Thanksgiving roasted turkey sliced and served with cranberry jus lié, mashed sweet potatoes, blanched broccolini, paprika potato wedges and honey-glazed pumpkin with crushed pecans. For dessert, passengers can savour a pecan tart with passion fruit cream, chocolate sauce and crème anglaise.
Aboard the Emirates A380 flights from Dubai to Los Angeles, New York and Washington DC, customers will also be able to celebrate Thanksgiving in the onboard lounge with delectable marzipan topped pumpkin cupcakes.
Economy Class passengers can enjoy a roasted turkey sliced and served with cranberry jus lié, chestnut roulade, green peas and mashed parsnip with carrots.
Thanksgiving will also be celebrated at the Emirates lounges in the US. On 24 and 25 November, Emirates lounges in New York-JFK, Boston and Los Angeles will serve authentic Thanksgiving turkey dishes with all the trimmings offering customers a taste of home during the holiday.
