Many airlines choose to serve caviar in first class. Perhaps even more airlines choose not to serve caviar in first class. But the fact remains, some airlines work hard to serve food that is better than what you would eat in a restaurant. But, one of those airlines serves 5% of the worlds caviar supply.
Which Airline Serves 5% of the Worlds Caviar Supply?
I have to be honest, when I saw this tweet, first I was a bit quizzical then I sort of chuckled and acknowledged, given the amount of times I’ve enjoyed caviar on Lufthansa (ironically I have many more posts to write).
All that said, it doesn’t surprise me one bit that Lufthansa is the airline that serves 5% of the worlds caviar supply.
Given the amount of times that I’ve enjoyed caviar (and I’m not even a seafood fan) on Lufthansa, I totally get it.
Aside from personal experience, I think its pretty impressive that a single airline serves 5% of the worlds caviar supply. Especially an airline that seems to have been cutting back on their first class cabin and first class routes.
Final Thoughts on a single airline that serves 5% of the worlds caviar supply
It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Lufthansa serves a bunch of caviar. Ironically, they serve caviar with plastic spoons/spatulas, rather than what should be the standard, serving it with mother of pearl utensils. Interestingly enough, Singapore, and many other airlines serve caviar with less than preferred utensils; plastic is probably the best other than mother of pearl. The fact that the passenger utensils are still silver or otherwise metallic is probably the most important, as, according to this FlyerTalk thread, metallic utensils can spoil the taste.
