In a bid to reduce food wastage on board flights, Emirates has unveiled a new initiative where passengers are allowed to pre-order or pre-select their hot main meal before they actually fly, ensuring they get their preferred meal choice every time.

Passengers are now allowed to pre-order their meals between 14 days and 24 hours in advance of their flight, reports Travel Daily News, helping to improve time management onboard.

The cabin crew will then use a custom-built application on a device to view the meal selection and serve the passenger their pre-ordered choice of hot dish.

The airline says that they plan to include this new meal pre-order initiative to more routes and classes in the near future, so it could be coming to South Africa very soon.
