Each week, my Meal of the Week feature examines an airline meal from my travels over the years. This may be a meal from earlier in the week or it may be a meal served over a decade ago.
Last week I wrote about a meal onboard Croatia Airlines. This week I cover another small European member of Star Alliance, Adria Airways.
What’s the difference between dinner and supper? Perhaps it is more colloquial, but I consider supper a lighter evening meal than dinner. This 8:40 P.M. departure featured a light meal, though maybe that was more a consequence of the CRJ-200 my flight was on.
The flight from Frankfurt to Ljubljana, Slovenia (pronounced loo-blee-ah-nuh) was only one hour and a FA whipped out the meals shortly after takeoff. The bread had already been warming in the oven prior to takeoff. I was one of two passengers in the six-seat business class cabin.
Supper included sliced chicken breast (served cold) with picked vegetables, two hot bread rolls, slicked cheese, and cake. At the beckoning of the FA, I also tried a glass of Slovenian white wine.
I had enjoyed an
appetizer dinner in the Lufthansa lounge prior to the flight (a big heaping plate of pasta), but did make myself one sandwich with chicken, cheese, and the single fig on the cheese plate. Very enjoyable. I skipped the cake but enjoyed a chocolate truffle.
I always love trying to new airlines. To date, this flight on Adria (from 2011) remains my only one on the Slovenian carrier and Star Alliance member. I spent a day in Ljubljana and loved it. Hopefully there will be an opportunity to return on a future date and try out Adria once again.
