New Qantas menu showcases vegetarian dishes, plant-based options

Qantas is rolling out its first new domestic Economy menu since on board catering was simplified as a result of the pandemic. Unveiled after months of development, the new menu includes a vegetarian option for all meals, following recent customer feedback.

With many customers travelling frequently across the Qantas domestic network, the menu will be served in multiple weekly cycles out of major Australian ports. There are six variations of the menu for each service time – breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and supper – meaning customers will experience more variety when they fly regularly.

Bolognese calzone, chicken and potato mediterranean croquettes, and zucchini and caramelised onion frittata are some of the new items on offer and complimentary wine and beer will continue to be available on select domestic flights from 4pm every day; on flights over three-and-a-half hours it’s available from 9am.

Items that will feature on the new Qantas Domestic Economy menu include:

  • Breakfast packs with yoghurt, banana, honey and macadamia bread and sliced apples
  • Ham and egg hollandaise ciabatta
  • Spinach and ricotta wrap
  • Roast chicken and chive on light rye sandwich
  • Zucchini and corn fritters
  • Gluten free and plant based chocolate caramel slice
  • Pear and ginger cake

In addition to the new menu launch, Qantas customers will be able to taste test a selection of plant-based meat dishes as part of a trial in its Sydney Domestic lounges this week. Frequent Flyers in the Sydney Business Lounge will be able to try penne pasta bolognese with parmesan while cocktail pies with tomato sauce will be on offer at the Qantas Club.

Qantas is the only domestic airline to offer complimentary food and beverages, baggage, and onboard WiFi on its domestic Boeing 737s and Airbus A330s in Economy.
