To/From North America Economy
Special Meals If you have a special dietary requirement for medical or religious reasons, or you may be travelling with small children, we can provide a suitable alternative meal if this is requested sufficiently in time - at least 24 hours in advance of your flight departure. Aer Lingus Careers

We offer a range of special meals on flights to and from North America, 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.

To order a special meal, simply contact your local Aer Lingus Reservations Office at least 24 hours in advance of your flight departure 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.

Aer Lingus recognises that some passengers are allergic to peanuts. Although we do not serve peanuts, there may be trace elements of unspecified peanut ingredients, including peanut oils, in meals and snacks. Additionally, other customers may bring peanuts on board. Therefore, we cannot guarantee customers will not be exposed to peanuts during flight and strongly encourage customers to take all necessary medical precautions to prepare for the possibility of exposure. We cannot offer a special meal that is nut-/peanut-free.
