First

Five star dining

With flawless service, a multi-award winning wine cellar and a five star dining menu designed by Qantas Creative Director, Food, Beverage and Service, Neil Perry, Qantas have set a new benchmark for dining in First.

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

If you’re in First departing Sydney, you can also enjoy the Neil Perry Rockpool seasonally inspired plate in addition to the onboard menu. Already on offer in our First lounges in Melbourne and Sydney, each seasonal inspired plate is created using the freshest seasonal produce and changes every four to six weeks in flight.
