Qantas bans ham on flights in and out of Dubai after Emirates deal


Consumption of pork and pork products is strictly forbidden in Islam as it is considered unholy. A note on the Qantas menus on flights in and out of Dubai states that meals do not contain pork products or alcohol, which is also forbidden in Islam. It has also introduced a Mezze plate offering traditional Middle Eastern fare in its upper classes and has Arabic translations after in-flight announcements.
