American Airlines recently announced that they’ll be including some new exciting items on their in-flight menu. The company plans to add five new Mediterranean-style dishes, which were all designed by the head chef of Zoe’s Kitchen, Antonio Iocchi. It seems as though the airline is taking the healthy approach, offering customers in the main cabin the option to select the chain’s signature dish of hummus and basil-pesto hummus accompanied by pita bread, cucumber slices, and carrot sticks for dipping.
In addition, American Airlines’ collaboration with Zoe’s Kitchen will bring a new take on breakfast, with this fabulous breakfast sandwich consisting of turkey bacon, egg slices, arugula, and tomato between two halves of a waffle brioche bun and Calabrian pepper aioli on the side.
If the breakfast sandwich is not your style, perhaps the continental breakfast box will be more to your liking. Your sweet tooth with thank you for this one. The box features a Belgian waffle topped with hazelnut spread and fresh berries.
If you’ve got a mid-day flight, you’ll be happy to find some new lunch items on the menu as well. The Gruben, for example, is a delicious sandwich made up of sliced turkey, Manchego cheese, and crunchy Mediterranean slaw, sandwiched between marble wheat bread with a feta spread. It also comes with a delicious chocolate chip cookie.
Another option from Zoe’s Kitchen is the wrap filled with grilled chicken, mozzarella cheese, arugula, roasted tomatoes, and artichoke. This one also comes with a chocolate cookie for dessert.
Janelle Anderson, the vice president of global marketing for American Airlines, recently released a statement regarding the partnership with Zoe’s Kitchen. The statement read: “Zoe’s mission to deliver goodness from the inside out and their ‘simple, tasty, fresh’ offerings made it an easy decision to partner with the fast-casual, healthy restaurant group. Our customers have asked for lighter tasty food choices. This collaboration with the expert chefs at Zoe’s provides an innovative, fresh approach to onboard offerings.”
