We offer a range of special meals on flights to and from the USA, see the list below. All of our special meals are prepared using the finest of ingredients and are balanced with the recommended intake of calories.
Regrettably we are unable to offer variations from these set menus and requests for specific items of food, made for personal preferences, cannot be accepted.
You can request a special meal, at the time of booking. If you forget to order when booking the flight, don't worry! You can add a special meal request as long as this is done at least 24 hours in advance of your flight departure. Simply contact your local Aer Lingus Reservations Office and they will be delighted to take the request (please ensure you have your booking reference number). Once on board the aircraft it is always a good idea to let the Cabin Crew know that you have ordered a special meal.
While we do not serve peanuts, or derivatives, as part of snacks or meals we cannot prevent other passengers from bringing nut-based products on board and consuming them during the course of a flight. This is important to note particularly if you suffer from a peanut allergy.
