BA676 LHR-IST Sat 16 Nov

Breakfast: hot frittata. Verdict, tasty and comforting. Portion size: reasonably good.

Other options included a full English breakfast or continental breakfast

Moving on to today's inbound BA675.

It remains an outlier because this fight departs IST at 10:00 yet still receives a breakfast and its a return catered breakfast so the entire offering is presented on one small tray. As you can see the main dish is conspicuously modest - there is a small mature cheddar free range omelette, one cherry tomato, a 4cm dia potato rösti. Tucked into the omelette was one button mushroom sliced in two. What got my goat was the portion size (obviously) and moreover the fact that the small dish was not fully utilised

The other option was a traditional mixed grill of veal sausage, scrambled free range eggs, grilled tomato and sautéed mushrooms. There was no continental alternative on this occasion
