Everyone has their own perception of what it's like to fly in a private jet. Champagne, and caviar during take-off for some; a sea of monotone grey and TVs displaying spreadsheets and pie charts for others. The reality? Well, that one lies somewhere in the middle – as is the case with most things in life.
Despite all their apparent luxury, private jet charters often place great focus on business and professionalism – and yes, there are a variety of other purposes that aren't as obvious, too.
With so many variables to consider when talking about private jets, the food is right at the heart of all things fancy. What can you anticipate in terms of jet menu options for your private flight? What a VIP receives during a private flight over the oceans cannot possibly be the same as a business meal on a turboprop, right? What about a family of five wanting to have a luxurious vacation in the Alps?
At Flying Seahorse, we're used to dealing with questions like these (all.the.time.), which is why we're among the finest when serving mouth-watering jet menu options for your private flight. The jet menu is one of the pillars of a grand experience, and we receive so many inquiries year in... year out.

This article will explain all you need to know about the jet menu served on your private flights so you may have an opulent and fulfilling private jet catering experience. From culinary excellence and visual appeal to a year-long jet menu calendar, there are many variables to consider to cater to private flights and exceed expectations. The only thing left to do is to choose.
#1 Private Jet Catering Is All About Culinary Excellence
When it comes to culinary excellence for private flights, every detail matters, and perhaps no detail is more significant than the quality of the private jet catering. That's why choosing the best catering service is of paramount importance.
The ideal catering service for you and your private flight won't always have the best reviews or the most seasoned chefs. There are many factors to consider when choosing a private jet catering company that satisfies all of your needs and goes above and beyond your expectations—so many things to think about and watch out for.
Below are 3 suggestions for selecting the finest private jet catering company for your private flight.
#1 Always schedule a tasting
The proverbial "evidence of the pudding" is in the eating. More often than not, sampling the jet menu the caterer will be serving in advance is a brilliant idea – even if they look stunning and come highly recommended. Tasting food yourself is the only way we know how to guarantee your satisfaction and that of your VIPs during your private flight.
#2 Check references and reviews
Any reputable private jet catering company ought to have references and reviews. Seeking out reviews is a favorable habit to have. That said, sometimes they may be unduly slanted. Be that as it may, if you get in touch with someone who has used the caterer before, you'll have a much clearer picture of how they operate and whether or not they're worth your time.
#3 Trust your gut
The only thing that counts is that you're happy with the business you opt for. Work with a private jet catering company that shares your values and with whom you feel at ease. If you have a hard time choosing between two prospective caterers, go with your gut.
#2 Visual Appeal: The Art of Plating
There's more to plating than meets the eye. The aesthetics of food undoubtedly tell your in-flight diners something about the quality of the ingredients and the preparation that went into it. However, research has shown that certain meal presentation techniques often lead people to believe that the food truly tastes better.
Diners perceive food as more appetizing when presented neat and balanced (as opposed to unbalanced or untidy), even if the contents and serving sizes stayed the same, as per studies conducted by Zellner et al. (2011).
In a similar vein, Michel et al. (2014) discovered that diners rated food up to 18% more appetizing when it was arranged in a complicated, artistically inspired manner compared to the same components when they were presented neatly and inartistically. These and other studies show that how food is presented visually significantly impacts taste perception – just as is the case with Flying Seahorse mouth-watering menu.
#3 A Year-Long Menu Calendar
Our Michelin-star chef has prepared a year-long menu calendar – a masterpiece, intricately woven to flex with the seasons and the rich culinary tapestry of these splendid destinations.

Let's break it down!
Spring Delights: As spring awakens, St Maarten beckons with dishes that celebrate the freshness of the season.
