Etihad Airways Launches 'Farm-to-Flight' Meals

Here's a cool new development for flying foodies: Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, is launching a new culinary initiative. You've heard of farm-to-table? This is farm-to-flight. 

Since the in-flight chef program, which brings customizable meals to Diamond Class passengers, launched in December 2011, the airline has purchased 200 hens and three beehives, all raised free-range at Abu Dhabi Organics Farms. The eggs and honey produced from Etihad’s hens and bees will be served exclusively to Etihad Airways’ passengers and used in dishes such as the “eggs any style” breakfast option.
 
Cool touch: Etihad is also developing a line of signature pickles, made from entirely organic ingredients, that will be available to customers.
