EMIRATES- meal updates


Emirates Airline

Special Services  |  Special meals

Emirates carries many passengers whose diet is limited due various reasons. To meet these requirements special meals can be booked on the EK flights. Meal requests will be auto confirmed on EK flights up to 24 hours before departure. Meals requests inside 24hrs of departure (including all departure Ex DXB) will remain on request and will be supplied based on availability and ability of the kitchen to supply same. After the final catering message, any meal requests added to the booking will be transmitted to the airport on a request basis and therefore cannot be guaranteed.
