Spreading the festive cheer, Emirates is giving its passengers a number of treats this December, including new amenity kits, festive food menus, and classic Christmas films available on board flights.
Featuring plenty of holiday favourites, this year’s Christmas menus are available throughout December for customers travelling from Dubai to Australia, Europe, the United States or the United Kingdom and those travelling from the UK to Dubai.
In Economy Class, passengers can enjoy rolled turkey buffé served with cranberry jus lié, mashed potatoes, Vienna chicken sausages and seasonal vegetables. For desserts, festive sweets will be served, such as a lemon cranberry cake with cream cheese frosting or a cocoa cake with white chocolate chips and raspberry coulis.
Those travelling in First and Business Class will start with king prawns marinated with lemon and herb and served with cocktail sauce and a fennel salad, and enjoy a main course of rolled turkey buffé served with chestnut and apricot stuffing, cranberry jus lié, pumpkin mash and creamy brussels sprouts with turkey bacon. A variety of desserts is available on the different routes including Gingerbread roulade, Chocolate Mint dome and Yule log.
As a special treat, First Class customers can look out for Santa-inspired macaroons and hot chocolate served with marshmallows and gingerbread. Meanwhile, young fliers in First Class will be surprised with snowman-inspired marshmallow biscuits.
Besides Dom Pérignon, Veuve Cliquot and Moët & Chandon champagnes available on board to celebrate the holidays, those travelling First Class between Dubai and Europe or Africa can pair their meals with a rare treat – the premium vintage Château Ducru-Beaucaillou 1985.
Traditional sweets such as Basler Leckerli gingerbread cookies, Christmas cake and Stollen cake are also being served in over 30 Emirates lounges worldwide, along with roasted turkey in the First Class lounges.
New Amenity Kits
Perfect stocking fillers for a frequent flier, Emirates newly designed amenity kits will be available to all classes throughout December.
For First and Business, a new range of Bulgari amenity kits featuring 16 brand new designs for men and women are now available. The exclusive designer kit bags include new signature Bulgari fragrances and lotions, along with other pampering essentials. The latest kits feature Bulgari’s White Tea fragrance and are available on long-haul night flights and on flights over 10 hours.
Economy Class amenity kits feature six new designs inspired by EXPO 2020, which will be hosted by Dubai. When arranged together, the kit bags form an image that represents the collaborative spirit of Expo 2020, according to Emirates.
Given out on ultra-long-haul flights, the new kits feature travel essentials such as socks, matching eye mask and a toothbrush.
In addition, parents travelling with infants will receive a special amenity kit for babies. The newly designed pouch features Emirates’ iconic Little Traveller characters and contains essentials such as a bib, spoon, baby wipes, changing mat, diaper rash cream and small diaper bag for a comfortable journey.
To get travellers into the festive spirit, Emirates’ in-flight entertainment system will feature Christmas classics including It’s a Wonderful Life, White Christmas, Miracle on 34th Street, Home Alone and Scrooged, as well as TV specials including The Office and Family Guy Christmas shows.
