All passengers will also receive a mini treat with their meal wishing them ‘Eid Mubarak,’ a sweet pumpkin Asseda, with an additional almond apricot tart for Premium Economy, Business and First Class customers.

Customers can help themselves to a rich slice of pistachio cake with cream cheese or an aromatic saffron and cardamom cake in the A380 onboard lounge, where a range of Emirati pastries and Arabic coffee are waiting for them.
