Here are more details from food blog Eater:

“American is tapping chef/restaurateur/Chopped judge Maneet Chauhan and pioneering Hawaiian chef Sam Choy, as well as Dallas’s Italian food specialist Julian Barsotti and Michelin-starred UK chef Mark Sargeant, to overhaul the food that’s served at 30,000 feet. Chauhan will be responsible for the menus served in premium cabins on U.S. outbound flights, while Sargeant’s food will be served in the premium cabins on European flights. Barsotti is designing the domestic premium cabin menus, and Choy’s food will be served on Hawaii routes (Choy also recently redesigned premium menus on transcontinental routes).”

This move shows that airlines are trying to eliminate the perception that flying is a stressful and inconvenient experience. Say goodbye to the bag of peanuts and the flat soda.

The decision by American Airlines to hire celebrity chefs follows Delta Air Lines decision back in 2014 at a higher world renowned chef Danny Meyer repair certain meals for its flights.
