The menu, designed by Le Palais, exclusive to China Airlines, will offer all travelers in Premium Business, Premium Economy, and Economy Class the opportunity to enjoy a Michelin-starred tasting.
“To partner with the Le Palais restaurant of Palais de Chine Hotel and become the first airline to serve three starred Michelin meals for all cabin classes was a tremendous honour,” said Kao Shing-Hwang, President, China Airlines. “Maximising customer satisfaction has always been the goal of the airline.
