First Class


A warm welcome

 

A First Class welcome awaits you even before take-off. A selection of refreshing and absolutely fresh fruit juices is offered while the rest of the passengers board. Shortly after take-off, cardamom-flavored Arabic coffee and succulent dates are offered to all First Class passengers, a sign of welcome and of more good things to come. 

 

The traditional Arabic greeting "Ahlan Wasahlan" sums it all "Welcome. My home is your home!"


First Class cuisine is among the best in the air

 

Without a doubt, Saudi Arabian Airlines' First Class cuisine is among the best in the air, served on fine china with a choice of multinational dishes including Arabic, Western, a dish from the destination country and a vegetarian option.

 

There are six hors d'oeuvres including two hot choices and caviar. A traditional soup is also offered with multiple choices of entrees with accompaniments to suit. As a fitting finale, there is a choice of hot dessert or ice cream, and of course tea and coffee, including espresso and cappuccino.

 

 

Executive Meal

 

Meantime, for First Class passengers who want to follow their own schedule, the Al-Faris Executive Meal is served whenever they are ready to have their meal.

 

Saudi Arabian Airlines is a member of the prestigious Chaine des Rotisseurs, a symbol of excellence in international cuisine.
