Kabar baik bagi Anda yang sering naik kelas bisnis rute internasional Garuda Indonesia. Per 26 Juli 2019 lalu, Garuda Indonesia mengadakan fitur ‘Book Your Meal’ yaitu konsep pelayanan di mana Anda bisa memilih makanan yang Anda ingin santap pada penerbangan tersebut sebelum keberangkatan.

Sekilas, konsep ‘Book Your Meal’ ini sangat menyerupai fitur ‘Book the Cook’ dari Singapore Airlines. Bedanya, pilihan makanan yang disajikan masih sangat terbatas dan sejauh ini hanya terdapat 3 rute di mana Anda bisa memesan ‘Book Your Meal’ ini. Ketiga rute tersebut adalah Jakarta – Sydney, Jakarta – Haneda, dan Jakarta – Amsterdam.

Berikut menu-menu book your meal yang disajikan Garuda Indonesia untuk setiap rute yang saya kutip dari website Garuda Indonesia.

Penutup

Penambahan fitur ‘Book Your Meal’ pada penerbangan kelas bisnis Garuda Indonesia untuk rute internasional ini saya pandang sebagai hal yang positif. Saya sendiri secara pribadi tidak meragukan kualitas katering dari Garuda Indonesia, terutama untuk hidangan khas Indonesia seperti sate ayam, nasi kuning, nasi goreng, dan sebagainya.

Apabila Anda ingat, saya pernah mengatakan bahwa Garuda Indonesia menyajikan hidangan yang sangat lezat terutama untuk masakan khas Indonesia. Contohnya adalah sate ayam yang sempat saya bahas pada kelas bisnis domestik di mana saya memberikan skor 9 dari 10 untuk sate tersebut.

Sate ayam Garuda Indonesia merupakan salah satu hidangan di atas pesawat terbaik yang pernah saya cicipi.

Oleh karena itu, tidaklah berlebihan apabila saya mengatakan bahwa sate ayam tersebut jauh lebih enak dibanding dengan sate yang saya makan di The Private Room Changi Airport 🙂 .

Walaupun untuk saat ini rute yang memiliki fitur ‘Book Your Meal’ sangat terbatas, saya berharap Garuda Indonesia akan terus menambahkan rute yang memiliki fitur Book Your Meal ini terutama untuk rute internasional non-Jakarta seperti Denpasar – Tokyo, Surabaya – Singapore, Denpasar – Shanghai dan sebagainya.

Penambahan jenis menu juga akan turut memperkuat image Book Your Meal ini agar tidak terkesan hanya sekedar menjiplak program Book the Cook dari Singapore Airlines. Mari kita berharap Garuda Indonesia akan terus meningkatkan layanan-layanan seperti ini kedepannya.
