ITB Berlin was packed with more exhibitors than any of the previous years with more than 11,000 companies exhibiting their services and products. This has been a very encouraging sign for the industry which was battered with bad news in 2009. Most of the exhibitors had invested quite a bit in getting their stands look very exciting.

SUBANG: In a bid to secure more travellers from Arab countries, Malaysia Airlines is hoping to boost its Middle Eastern in-flight menu.

The airline’s in-flight caterer, LSG Sky Chefs Brahim, recently held a Middle Eastern food tasting session for elite cusomters under its “Friends of MH” programme, according to Bernama.

The aim of the gathering was to collect opinion on the menu. Top guest chefs such as Lebanon’s Chef Pierre El-Kossaifi and Britain’s Chef Oscar Villegas were among the experts who helped develop the menu.

KUALA LUMPUR: What is halal and what is not? Many Muslims are clear as to what is prohibited and what is allowed. However, for many of the Islamic faith, the lines are blurred. This is why Islamic countries are getting together in an attempt to standardise and codify halal products.
