KUALA LUMPUR, April 25 — Hate flying? Not a fan of airline food?

Plane in the City, the country’s first aircraft restaurant, might just change your mind.

After all, the one-of-a-kind dining experience made it to the Malaysia Book of Records as the first aircraft restaurant in the country.

Situated right smack in Bukit Bintang, Plane in the City serves "passengers" a three-course fine dining meal cooked by Le Meridien executive chef Antoine Rodriguez on an actual Boeing 737 plane.

And just like on an actual airline, dining menus are categorised into economy class (RM199), business class (RM399) and first class (RM999).

Guests may also add on a selection of canapés, desserts and celebration cakes for birthdays and anniversaries.

Passengers will also be given the opportunity to visit the aircraft’s cockpit and walk on the aircraft’s wing.

The entire experience lasts for 90 minutes and sits 20 people per session.

“This looks easier than it actually is... it’s something that you would not have thought was possible,” said Arvin Randhawa, chief executive officer of TwoSpicy Entertainment Live, the team behind the immensely popular Dining in the Sky.

“This interactive experience is a great way for locals and tourists to treat their loved ones, friends or clients and have an unforgettable outing and great pictures for their social media,” added Arvin.
