Chicken Not On Menu For MAS Flights From China

Malaysia Airlines (MAS) has removed chicken from its in-flight menu for flights out of China, effective today.

This follows the government's indefinite ban on chicken imports from that country.

In a statement here, the airline said fish, mixed seafood and beef would be served, depending on the sectors.

However, it said chicken would remain on the menu for flights out of Malaysia, as the meat here is sourced from local farms.

Its general manager for in-flight services, Hayati Ali said the safety of passengers was the priority for MAS.
