Changes to Short Haul Catering in December.

Crew will be shown some new catering that is to start making appearances onboard Short Haul flights from the 2nd of December... Items will be shown to crew at the Crew Report Centre at T5 in the next few days.

I new "Classical" Afternoon Tea product will be introduced. I have not seen this and have no idea of the contents yet. As soon as I have either seen it or am able to get more details, I will update.

DHL and Northern Foods have also developed a replacement for the Breakfast Brioche, which is a larger "multi seeded cafe roll" (whatever one of those is...) with new fillings. Again, I have not seen, nor have any information yet. But will update when I do.

Regards,

Thanks for posting BBB. Hopefully when there's more detail it will be an improvement - always hoping!

No fruitcake though.

I am trying hard to resist the urge to be negative whenever I read your posts regarding catering changes or enhancements........!

Thanks for the advance notice and please let us know when you get more details.

I presume this afternoon tea change affects Club Europe? How can they possibly enhance that any more? Take away the jam from the scones?

Or could this possible be a genuine enhancement?

Oooh, popcorn in SH? So we can munch while we're watching the moving map...

Actually, I found a great little magazine called Business Life in the seat pocket, that I managed to read cover to cover back from OSL. Very good. Don't understand why they don't put it on LH. I've sent a message to someone I know who works at Cedar to compliment them on it.
