At 1015 PM approximately 30 minutes after departure the first drink service started and my travel partner and I enjoyed the flight`s featured cocktail the Iceberg Cosmopolitan (a refreshing mixture of Newfoundland-made Iceberg Vodka mixed with cranberry juice and a splash of Grand Marnier). A small plate of premium nuts was served as well. This was soon after followed by a hot towel service and 45 minutes after departure the Captain had still not welcomed us aboard the flight with a standard flight synopsis announcement. Captain Green made no such announcement on this flight.
Approximately one hour after take-of blue table clothes were distributed in anticipation of dinner. White table clothes would have been nicer... classier. Fifteen minutes later a cold starter plate was served consisting of Prosciutto Ham and marinated Heart of Palm which was very nice. The fresh ground pepper was a nice touch! About 20 minutes after the cold plate service the main course was served. I chose the Over-baked Crabmeat and Corn Boat which was available and it was served hot on fine china and was very delicious! A dinner drink service was offered to accompany the meal and I had a nice glass of red wine. The meal portions were sufficient and the food taste and presentation was to a high standard.
When Brazilian company Embraer known for its innovative design and BMW which is synonymous with motoring luxury teamed up first-class flyers new they were in for a treat. Embraer provided the jets and BMW`s DesignworksUSA studio provided the interiors which have BMW style stamped all over them. The lines are straight and clean and there is a great deal of black and white it has been described as Teutonic and tech-heavy. There is a full galley as well as a full bathroom and the seats convert into flat beds.
