Keep in mind, though, that “Book the Cook” availability varies, and it’s offered for flights lasting over 1.5 hours. So, check your booking to see if your specific route is on the list.

With over 50 meal options, the “Book the Cook” menu caters to all tastes across different cabin classes. The menu diversity is highest for flights departing from Singapore, as this is the airline’s home base, making it convenient for them to manage.

  1. Suites and First Class: 18 cities
  2. Business Class: 32 cities
  3. Premium Economy: 26 cities
