Gone are the days of a good meal on an airplane, you say? Think again. US Airways has just introduced a new premium meal option for economy class travelers on international flights called “DineFresh.”

The meals include both vegetarian options (such as Caprese salad and Portobello mushroom tortolleni) and non-vegetarian options (like citrus-marinated chicken skewers or a classic shrimp cocktail), and will cost $19.99.

Passengers will have to sign up for the premium meals at least 24 hours in advance.

Regular, free economy meals will still be offered on flights to Europe, the Middle East and South America, the airline noted. The DineFresh meal option, paired with complimentary wine, and offered by US Airways becomes the first U.S.-based carrier to offer a premium meal experience for customers in the main cabin.
