Veg out this summer with Alaska Airlines’ new vegan meal option. Now through October, guests can enjoy the “Soy Meets World,” a vegan salad developed in partnership with Evergreens, a West Coast-based company that makes gourmet, freshly chopped salads.
“We’re thrilled to offer our guests more healthy and nutritious choices when they fly with us,” said Todd Traynor-Corey, managing director of guest products. “We built our menu thoughtfully to offer more plant-based, vegan and gluten-free options, which include a range of fresh, bright flavors inspired by the West Coast and ingredients that are authentically healthy by nature such as roasted broccoli, crisp romaine, and baby lettuce greens, quinoa, fresh fruit and more.”
Alaska Airlines’ Vegan Options
The “Soy Meets World”, available on trips over 1,100 miles with 10 am-10 pm departures for $9.50, includes roasted broccoli, fresh cucumber slices, scallions, pickled carrots, fried tofu, and brown rice served over a bed of crisp romaine and baby lettuce greens, topped with roasted cashews, fried onions, and paired with Tamari Chili Lime dressing.
Alaska Airlines also offers a vegan and gluten-free snack option, the Mediterranean Tapas Pack, for $6.50 on all flights of 783 miles or longer. The Mediterranean Tapas Pack includes Pick Pocket Traditional Hummus, Craize Roasted Corn Crackers, Mario Snack Olives, Madi K’s almonds, That’s it Apples + Fig Fruit Bar, and a TCHO Pure Notes 67% Cacao dark chocolate.
Pre-Order Meals Before Takeoff
Guests who want to enjoy the “Soy Meets World” should pre-order their meal ahead of their flight using their reservation on the Alaska Airlines app or at alaskaair.com. Meals orders can be made starting 14 days before a flight, and up to 20 hours prior to departure. Snacks and Picnic packs do not require pre-order and are available on board most flights over 2 hours.
