The level of luxury and creativity for fine dining is not only limited to restaurants nowadays as airliners have also started to experiment to satisfy the ever demanding taste buds of connoisseurs flying in business class at 35000 feet.
It is worth noting that the luxury travellers pay a fair share in order to satisfy their personal tastes. There seems to be a stiff competition amongst the airliners to provide the best service to their clients.
This is an insight into my flying experience using Oman Air Business Class to travel from Muscat (Oman) to Colombo (Sri Lanka). The moment I stepped into the airport I was checked in through the priority counter and then instructed to proceed the lounge after sorting out all the immigration processes.
I was very impressed with the Oman Air First/Business class Lounge located at Muscat International Airport. To get more insight into my experience in the lounge please check the lounge menu.
There was a warm welcoming treatment as the flight attendants served hot and cold towels being followed by freshly squeezed juices and Arabic Coffee (Qahwa) with dates.
The seats were brown coloured made from the cloth material. They provided 12-way adjustable configuration with a lot of cushioning to support the back and adjustable entertainment screens were also available.
Now moving on to the food there was a set menu with three types of dishes and various types of beverages. I preferred to go with mushroom and cheese omelette as it was breakfast time and later on a Karak tea.
The breakfast was served in proper china fine bone utensils and even the cutlery was of metal. Food quality and presentation were top-notch as the omelette and the meat was cooked properly and topped with herb cream cheese. Chicken Lingus sausage served on this flight was really amazing as I tried it for the first time. Finally, the Karak tea had an amazing flavour of cardamom and saffron.
The overall flight experience was wonderful as it was a journey of five hours.
