Air China has begun offering onboard meal pre-ordering for first and business class passengers on select international flights departing Beijing.

The new service is currently set to run until October 28, 2017. During this time, passengers travelling in fare classes F and A (first class) and J, C, D, Z and R (business class) will be able to reserve their onboard meals at least 24 hours before their flight departure time.

Applicable destinations include cities in the US, Canada, Russia, Switzerland, New Zealand, Spain, Austria, the UK, South Africa, Belarus, Germany, France and Italy, though some routes only provide pre-ordering for snacks rather than meals.

The full list of applicable flights is as follows:
