Stay at Home Challenge: Re-create a British Airways Meal at Home

Jed's Band 3 dinner with chocolates as a bonus.

The contest will continue until April 13th. Want to enter? Re-create a British Airways meal, take a photo, submit it on the Stay at Home challenge page.

  • It’s OK if you “borrowed” some of your items from previous British Airways flights
  • Have other British Airways goodies? Add them to the shot, we love to see them!
  • Tell us a little bit about your setup in you post.

Is this an April's Fool Day joke? Satire? Is British Airways known for its gastronomic excellence? Really?

My cooking always tastes like airline food. Either it's too salty or bland. Of course it's loaded with carbs and fat to put me into nap mode.

These airline meal recreations remind me of a nightclub in Montreal, in my college days circa 1970, on the top floor of the Place Ville Marie office tower, which happened to be 737 feet above sea level. The club was called, appropriately, Altitude 737, and all the windows were shaped like airplane windows. But the food was not as good as airline food, in those days.
