Default A Reference for Special Meals Available On Board Singapore Airlines

For easiness in referring back to the question of special meals, here are the list of what special meals are available when flying Singapore Airlines and a brief description which I copied them here from SQ website in this link.


Special Meals



For passengers with special dietary requirements due to medical or religious reasons, we offer a wide selection of special meals that will meet your needs. Please place your order at least 24 hours before the flight departure through our reservations office or your travel agent.

Default Changes effective 1 June 2009

In line with IATA’s new guidelines for meal definitions, some changes to the special meals available to all customers will take effect from 1 June 2009.

From 1 June 2009, these special meal options will cease to be available :
(i) High Fibre Meal
(ii) Low Protein Meal
(iii) Low Purine Meal
(iv) Oriental Meal




PPS Club members’ current special selection reflected in their account profile will still apply till 31 May 09.



A new PPS Club Meal Preference Form will also be available and all new submissions of meal preferences must be made on the new form, from 1 June 2008.



The new PPS Club Meal preference form can be downloaded by PPS Club members by logging in and clicking on ‘Customer Service’, followed by ‘Download Forms’.

Default Asian Vegetarian - Indian (non-strict)

Not sure if this is the right thread to post:

I am interested in try trying out this meal in place of my usual ovo-lacto vegetarian. Wonder what is usually given as the 'salads' and deserts, especially ex-SIN? I do like Indian main meals, but not some of their deserts and appetizers.

A typical example of an AVMLI salad - mix of chickpeas, lettuce, raisins with a tomato-based sauce topping. On other occasions, I've noticed a corn, tomato and coriander mix. Both usually very good.

Typical desserts: rasmalai, gulab jamun or kulfi (links below)
