It seems Emirates has recently elliminated the traiditional vegetarian meal, forcing every vegetarian to go Vegan.

That's such a shame. The last time I flew Emirates, I had the Asian Vegetarian Meal (AVML) and it was really quite nice. Very disappointing that they've lumped everyone into a "one size fits all" meal.

The indian vegetarian was still available last week. At least there's a bit of flavor in that meal.

Can't expect any airline to carry 36 different variations of meals to suit everyone!

Agree John. Ultimately vegetarian/vegan are a minority. It would be cheaper for the airline to not have to carry a different meal for every dietary variation out there. The vegan meal covers both vegan and vegetarian, so I see no reason to have both.

Disagree Grannular. It's not hard to provide good quality, tasty vegan food. It doesn't take a lot of effort nor does it cost more to produce. It would be cheaper for the airline to not have to carry a different meal for every dietary variation out there however, the ticket is the same $ for all passengers so the service should not lack for any. Perhaps airline should consider making all meals vegan? This might considerably lower the cost of catering on all flights. This would be a nifty way of reducing air travel costs for all while doing their bit for the planet! Lets face facts, anyone who seriously rates airline food, regardless on the class of travel, as gourmet is drinking the marketing Kool-Aid. I find a packed meal is the best way to ensure I get what I need on any length of flight.Â

Emirates cost cuts on vegetarian meals. No more VLML, it's all vegan now...
