TRAVEL GAZETTE – Airberlin has announced its new connections to Boston, Dallas and San Francisco, whilst becoming the first German airline to serve a double cheeseburger at an altitude of 10,000 metres.
“Serving crisp food at cruising altitude is an art form! The pressure on board is lower, and the air in the cabin is extremely dry. Humidity on the ground is usually between 50 and 70 percent, but in the aircraft it is just 5 to 10 percent. We searched high and low until we found a provider whose bread rolls satisfied our high quality standards for in-flight meals”, explains Thomas Ney, Senior Vice President Hospitality and Operations at airberlin.
