Air France is committed to promoting French haute cuisine in all its cabin classes. With a unique legacy, the Company is continuing a tradition that values excellence, pleasure and exclusivity.Since 2009, Air France has entrusted one dish from the La Première and Business Class menusto a renowned French chef.

Joël Robuchon, Guy Martin, Michel Roth, Thibaut Ruggeri, Régis Marcon, Anne-Sophie Pic and François Adamski were the first to carry out this mission as French gastronomy ambassadors aboard Air France flights, by including one or several creations among the different main dishes on the menu. In keeping with the menus created by Michelin-starred chefs on departure from Paris, Air France is offering new high-flying dishes created by Daniel Boulud on departure from the US.
