Onboard Easter treats

In Economy, it’s heated hot cross buns or carrot cake with three milk sauce. If in premium cabins, you can choose a chocolate cake with ganache and redcurrants or strawberry cheesecake with mini-Easter eggs.

In the A380 onboard lounge, you’ll get simnel fruitcake with traditional marzipan. And even Orthodox Easter a week later, 14-17 April, doesn’t miss out on Easter cake Kulich bread to be served on routes to Greece and Russia. Kids across the aircraft will get biscuits shaped like an Easter egg.

Lounges in on the act too

Depending on your lounge’s continent, you could get lamb chops, potatoes and carrots in orange jus in the First-Class Lounges of Dubai. In the US, roasted leg of lamb with dates, green olives and pomegranate. For Singapore, pistachio-crusted lamb cutlets with red peppers, olive oil coulis and spring. In the UK, you will get herb-crusted lamb with chargrilled leeks, baby potatoes, cherry tomatoes and mint sauce.

2PAXfly Takeout

Easter, like Christmas, has achieved world domination, with a total lack of Christ on either occasion. You can take the boy out of Anglican Sunday school, but you can’t take the Anglican Sunday school out of the boy!
