Media were given good opportunity to interview Michelin starred chef Guy Martin.

Chef Guy explained all flight attendants serve Premium Class on Air France go through special training in a restaurant to understand more about the Gastronomy.

To keep the moisture of meals, they were all freshly prepared shortly before flight takeoff.

Air France have seriously always outdone itself in the catering department. This is something other airlines can only look up Air France to!

I have the best meal ever onboard Air France earlier from Paris to Tokyo, I literally cried, it was that good!

It was a gorgeous afternoon with perfect winter weather in Dubai, I can't think of a better way to wine and dine than what I've done today! I certainly looking forward to the new menu creation onboard my next flight with Air France!

Thank you Air France, the pleasure is all mine!
