Carrier Name: South African Airways
Scope and Content note
In addition to the physical description of the menus, certain components of the records may be of special interest to researchers. From the transportation side, the record provides (if available) the flight’s origin; its destination; trip route; travel class; type of vessel and trip’s date.
From the menu’s contents, the record includes meals served on board, a listing of items on the menu, and a sampling of representative dishes.
In addition, the record includes the donor’s name and transcribed notes found on the menu regarding flight, service, food, and wine.
In 2016, menus from the Compagnie belge maritime du Congo were digitized and added to the finding aid. The original menus reside in the Herskovits Library of African Studies.
