First off, we’d like to wish those celebrating the holy month of Ramadan a happy one. If you’re familiar with the holiday, a key element is the practice of fasting during the day, to be broken in the evening with Iftar, the evening meal for Muslims to gather and break the fast together.
For folks flying on a five-star airline like Qatar Airways during daylight hours, that may mean missing out on a scrumptious meal. But never fear, Qatar has stepped up to the plate (literally) with tailored “Iftar Boxes” for flyers to consume later once able to break the fast.
There are two boxes – one for vegetarians and one for non-vegetarians, with the key difference being a saaj wrap either with chicken or without. It also comes with tasty crudites, the airline’s signature mixed fruit and nuts, as well as a banana and some other noshables to complete the dining experience.
The boxes are available on Qatar flights between Doha and the Gulf, Middle East and North Africa to passengers in Business and Economy class who decline meals due to fasting. The meals are presented around the fast break time by their cabin crew later in the flight.
If you’re flying on Qatar and happen to enjoy one of these Iftar Boxes, be sure to tell us about it by writing a review on Routehappy!
