Air France offers a Hindu meal option for passengers on certain flights within Europe and on all intercontinental flights. You can request a special meal no later than 24 hours before your flight[1]. The Hindu meal (HNML) does not contain pork or beef and is suitable for Hindu passengers who are not entirely vegetarian. It usually includes chicken, lamb, fish, eggs, and other dairy products[2]. The meal is cooked with a variety of spices, ensuring that it is full of flavor.

In Air France Business Class, the Hindu meal typically consists of a lentil/bean dish and some other curry, such as spinach-cheese, potato, or cauliflower[3]. A Hindu vegetarian breakfast in Business Class may include items like rice, potatoes, chickpeas, tomatoes, carrots, or courgette as vegetables, and a fruit or fruit salad for dessert[3].

If you prefer a vegetarian option, Air France also offers an Indian vegetarian meal (AVML), which usually consists of an Indian curry with rice[4]. To request a special meal, you can do so through the airline’s website or by contacting their customer service.

Keep in mind that while Air France tries to accommodate special meal requests, they cannot guarantee the complete absence of food allergens or peanut traces in their meals, both on board and at the airport[1].
