Arrow Short haul catering guide 2014



Since the beginning of the Winter 2013 timetable, you may have noticed one or two changes to the catering on board British Airways short haul flights. Information on previous onboard offerings can be found here: Short haul catering guide - Winter 2012/13 [Beta]

Catering in Club Europe and Euro Traveller is devised by bandings, dependent on the length of your flight. On UK Domestic, you get what you're given and be thankful for what you receive

We are most grateful to Littlegirl for once again coming to our aid and furnishing us with the very latest catering product information and providing a break down of bands and associated routes. So if you're not sure what to expect on your next short haul flight, all you need at hand is the departure time and the "band" your flight falls into.

The main purpose of this thread is to encourage discussion on BA catering, so please do use this thread to share your opinions and add your own experiences of BA's short catering. Your own reports, menu listings and photographs are most welcome - appending some basic info such as route, date of travel (approximate) and class of travel are very useful datapoints.

Thanks also to BotB, haasha, and HIDDY for providing background photography

Breakfast


UK Domestic
On short domestic flights (LBA, IOM, MAN, NCL), passengers are offered a hot toasted sandwich and orange juice in the morning.

On Anglo-Scottish/Belfast domestic flights (ABZ, BHD, EDI, GLA), passengers are offered a hot breakfast and orange juice. On flights out of LHR, the hot dish is usually scrambled egg, bacon, sausage, mushrooms, and tomato and on flights departing from LGW and regional outstations, the hot dish is sausage, bacon, and tomato. The vegetarian option on LHR flights is currently a cheese omelette with chestnut mushroom sauce and slow roasted tomatoes, a fritatta with spinach and grilled tomatoes on LGW flights, and scrambled eggs, hash brown and veggie sausage on LCY flights.

As an alternative to the hot options a cold continental breakfast (ham, egg and cheese box) is available on request.

Service follows with the choice of tea or coffee

Notes
  • Recipes and ingredients do vary between LHR, LGW, and LCY flights.
  • Portions tend to be marginally smaller on LCY flights.

Just a heads up regarding a couple of things:

The continental breakfast isn't (afaik) offered on flights to/from LGW (domestics)

Customers cannot order a SPML in ET on any flights to/from LGW. We carry some vegetarian options on all flights where meat options are served.

As already mentioned, LGW CE meals can be different and looking at the list above they are completely different. I'll try my best to get all the options as soon as I can.

Customers cannot order a SPML in ET on any flights to/from LGW. We carry some vegetarian options on all flights where meat options are served.

As already mentioned, LGW CE meals can be different and looking at the list above they are completely different. I'll try my best to get all the options as soon as I can.

Thank you. I've made a few "catch all" adjustments to the narratives which I hope gives a more accurate distinction between what is loaded on LGW and LHR flights.

If you are able to add any LGW specifics, I'll be delighted to incorporate this into the guide.

LGW drinks:

Liqueurs in CE on Band 3 & 4 only
Lagers: Tiger and Heineken
Fruit Shoots (blackcurrant flavour) instead of 5alive
White wines: Chardonnay and Côte de gasgoine (sp?)
Red wines: Pinotage and Cabernet/Merlot
For those so inclined, we now have 3 or 4 Slimline Tonics in each bar instead of 2.

All other drinks the same as LHR flights although I haven't seen any Port for some time. Will investigate at next opportunity

ET catering:
Band 3 flights: Urban Eat "double" wrap. Chicken Caesar, BLT, Coronation Chicken, Harissa Chicken. Veg options: Falafel or Mozzarella & tomato.
These are the flavours I can remember from the top of my head. Only one meat option and one veg option carried on each flight.

ET Breakfast box: oj couplet, cheese croissant and Moma Bircher muesli yogurt pot.

My mind has gone blank re CE catering, apart from the Lily dessert pots
I will investigate more.

great , thanks for the updates. I found the last thread particularly helpful, as was new to shorthaul (indeed still am quite new), especially having littlegirl around.

Great thread. Loving the fact that there's not a smoked salmon salad on the CE list for Band 1 and 2 for dinner. Looking forward to my next trips to GVA now - I was always unlucky with the rotations.
