The festivities will continue in Economy Cabins, where the in-flight digital menus will include a greeting message from the airline, highlighting a variety of the region’s inspired flavours.
Passengers will be offered a delicious lamb ‘thareed’ with vermicelli rice for the main course and an orange blossom ‘basbousa’ cake for desert.
