Starting March 31st, first-class British Airways travelers will be treated to a new experience. After announcing the revitalization of the Club World business product, first class travelers will soon get a new amenity kit, improved bedding and a wide selection of food and beverages.
Flyers in British Airways’ first class cabin can look forward to an improved experience starting on Sunday, March 31, 2019. The flag carrier outlined the new changes in a press release, which focus on an improved menu, along with new bedding and amenity kit items.
After takeoff, flyers can change into new pajamas provided by luxury brand Temperley London, replacing the current offering. The improved amenity kits include refreshment items from British beauty company Elemis’ Ultra Smart Pro-Collagen range.
When it’s time to relax, first class travelers will be treated to an improved turndown service. Day blankets and bolster cushions will be provided, with turndown featuring a foam-fiber mattress topper and 400-thread count bedding. Before turning in, travelers can also enjoy plenty of options available through the in-flight entertainment system with Meridian headphones included.
At mealtime, flyers will be provided A La Carte menus to select options from. The tableware was designed by William Edwards, with flatware from the complimentary Studio William. While British Airways did not elaborate on the menu, Turning Left For Less revealed some of the options on an upcoming first-class flight. Starters include a cured beef bresaola or seared scallops; main dish options range from a Herefordshire beef filet or ricotta black pepper ravioli, and desserts include vanilla bean ice cream or blueberry and nectarine charlotte. Snacks and cheese plates will also be provided on the menu.
To complement the new food offerings, signature cocktails will also be joining the food menu. Turn Left For Less notes the options range from the Classic Mule to the Highland Sling.
Of course, passengers in the luxury cabin will also be treated to a traditional afternoon high tea service. Along with the signature hot beverages, flyers can select between sandwiches, pastries, and scones. First class airfare also comes with entry to lounges, including The First Wing at Terminal 5 of London Heathrow Airport (LHR).
The improved amenities come during the airline’s centennial celebration and is just one of several new experiences announced by the carrier. Other consumer-facing benefits include a new Club World seat and added lounge access for Gold Guest List elite members.
