Passengers on long-haul flights departing Paris on Air France are in for a treat when it comes to onboard dining. The airline has asked Arnaud Lallemnet — a chef with three stars in the famed Michelin restaurant guide — to design new offerings for passengers in business class. The new dishes will be featured during April, May and June with two options offered each month.

For those on board in the month of April, the menu will feature guinea fowl with turnips or cod with artichokes.
