International Inflight Dining

It's All About

Award winning wines and world class inflight dining

Fly with Qantas and you'll enjoy one of the finest dining experiences inflight and in our Lounges found anywhere in the world. This season, the cuisines of the world are the inspiration for a wide range of new dishes made from freshest seasonal ingredients.

A host of Rockpool favourites are taking to the sky such as snapper poached in coconut milk and garam masala with egg noodles and snow peas; beef fillet with green beans, potato and cabbage gratin; and roast lamb rack with rosemary potatoes.

On Business flights departing Australia, customers can expect springtime favourites such as an asparagus, green peas and Ligurian olive salad, served with fresh South Australian Woodside goat curd.

Customers in First will experience the Glacier 51 Toothfish - sourced from the Australian zone of the sub-Antarctic region and pan fried with zucchini, chilli and tomato scapece, polenta and pine nut pesto.

And to accompany these delicious dishes, you can now request Charles Heidsick Champagne in Business and First alongside the Strawberry Daiquiri as a pre take off drink.

First cuisine

Five star dining

With flawless service, a multi-award winning wine cellar and a five star dining menu created by Qantas consulting chef Neil Perry, Qantas have set a new benchmark in dining in First.


Enjoy delicious and innovative cuisine created from sustainable and locally sourced produce and served by our silver service trained cabin staff. Choose from 12 delicious main courses, with the opportunity to indulge in an 8-course tasting menu on selected services.

If you are in First departing Sydney, you can also enjoy the Neil Perry Rockpool Market Inspirations plate in addition to the onboard menu. Already on offer in our First lounges in Melbourne and Sydney, each Market Inspirations plate is inspired by seasonal produce and changes every four to six weeks in flight.
