Welcome the year of the dog

In the Chinese zodiac, the dog is a symbol of good fortune and prosperity. Individuals born in the year of the dog are loyal, compassionate and fun-loving. They are determined, which often leads them to success. And despite their drive and strong will, they are honest, just and remain the truest friends.

Savour Lunar New Year treats on board

Customers in First Class can bite into a white peach mochi served with tea or coffee. In First Class and Business Class, tantalise your taste buds with our special occasion treats – lychee and raspberry mousse served with vanilla lychee compote in the shape of a Lunar New Year firecracker. And in Economy Class you can taste our scrumptious lucky mandarin cake with orange compote.

Receive a red packet of prosperity

The red packet tradition varies across Asia during the Lunar New Year. In some countries, friends and family exchange red envelopes filled with notes to wish each other good fortune and prosperity in the year ahead. Customers in Business Class and First Class will find their own special red envelope filled with chocolate gold coins on board.
