"I think our food is fantastic. We believe in it so much (that) we're going to start a fast food restaurant out of it," said Fernandes

The in-flight menu, which was launched in May 2017, markets its food as a "gourmet in-flight dining experience."

The menu includes crowd favourites such as Pak Nasser's Nasi Lemak and Uncle Chin's Chicken Rice.
