Royal Jordanian enhances Crown Class meals

Royal Jordanian Airlines made this announcement:

The upgrades, which are carried out in coordination with DNATA Jordan, RJ’s catering provider, are the result of RJ’s continuous efforts to further enrich its guests’ experience on board its Crown Class.

The newly introduced appetizer and dessert plates were carefully selected to pair well with the choices of hot meals RJ serves on board and to suit different tastes.

The superior appetizers on Crown Class offer two choices: Arabic mezze and Western hors d’oeuvres. They consist of a variety of meat and seafood choices, including smoked salmon, shrimps, calamari and roast beef, or stuffed vine leaves, tabbouleh, shankleesh and mutabbal. These choices will be changed every two weeks, during different cycles; at the same time, the choices offered to passengers flying onboard RJ from Amman will be different from the choices offered out of Amman.

RJ President/CEO Stefan Pichler stressed RJ’s keenness to continuously improve all guest services, keeping them up to the reputation of this prestigious international company which shows appreciation to its passengers. Part of this endeavor is the meal offer on RJ’s flights, in cooperation with dnata.

He said that the improvements came in response to passengers’ suggestions and desires, expressed to RJ, in order to meet these demands and to make passengers’ travel experience comfortable and enjoyable, just as RJ is known to have been doing.

Pichler called on all guests to provide RJ with their feedback, promising to maintain an open channel of communication between the airline and its customers.

“We listen to our guests and want to receive their feedback, particularly in regard to our onboard services which RJ constantly works on improving,” he said.

Royal Jordanian takes delivery of the first Boeing 787

Royal Jordanian Airlines (Amman) and Boeing (Chicago and Seattle) yesterday (August 26) celebrated the delivery of the airline’s first 787 Dreamliner. The airplane will play a central role in the Amman-based airline’s strategic plan for fleet modernization. Royal Jordanian acquired this airplane through leasing company AerCap.

With this delivery, Royal Jordanian becomes only the second airline in the Middle East to operate the 787.

The airline will configure its Dreamliner to carry 24 passengers in business class and 246 in economy class.

To support Royal Jordanian’s Dreamliners, Boeing is providing a comprehensive suite of support and services through its Commercial Aviation Services business. Royal Jordanian has received flight and maintenance training and will be using Airplane Health Management, a diagnostic and predictive capability that evaluates airplane operations data while airplanes are in flight and notifies ground crews of potential maintenance issues; a Rotable Exchange Program that provides a dedicated pool of high-value, mission-critical parts and manages inventory at a reduced cost; and Maintenance Performance Toolbox, a digital real-time-information tool that enables quick resolution of airplane maintenance issues.

Royal Jordanian currently flies a network of over 50 global destinations and plans to deploy the Dreamliner on services to North American destinations as well as to Asia, Europe and the Middle East.

To date, more than 180 Dreamliners have been delivered to 20 customers worldwide.
