From 15-17 February, travellers flying back to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Yinchuan and Zhengzhou via Dubai can revel in festivity thousands of feet above the ground. Customers travelling in First Class and Business Class will receive a red packet with two chocolate coins, symbolising the auspicious value of "lucky money" during this special occasion.

In addition to the regionally inspired cuisine served on board, passengers will be able to indulge in a selection of Spring Festival desserts. First Class and Business Class customers can tuck into a mouth-watering lychee and raspberry mousse served with vanilla lychee compote, shaped in the design of a traditional Chinese firecracker.
