TPA-LGW menu

flying next Monday from Tampa in CW, Departure is 2100h. would anyone know the menu...I ma very tempted to eat earlier off airport, but being a weak person know the temptation will be there to have (another) dinner on board................

I presume drinks and food are all done in one -as early as possible -run ?

we ate in Carrabbas in the airport -much nicer than the offering in CW
we decided that a meal served at 22.30 (02.30 uk time ) was not a great idea

drinks were served first -orders for meal taken -and food arrived around 75-90 mins after take off

Bear in mind that the 9pm departure is just a freak for a couple of weeks as the US has gone onto summer time before the UK.

I recall eating on a late flight out of MIA (maybe 10pm??) and the service didn't seem rushed - just the usual, which given an 8hrs 30 mins flight time or whatever does take its toll on sleep...

Me too... I decided to go for dinner on the 10:35pm departure recently and the service was at quite a leisurely pace. In the end I finished dessert around 1am (i.e. 6am UK time).

The flight might be a bit longer than say JFK, but if you don't want skullcrushing jetlag I'd have dinner at the airport and get some shuteye as soon as the plane is in the air.

It's such a short flight that if you want to get your head down I'd definitely eat somewhere beforehand. I'm not a huge fan of eating at the airport but there's an abundance of great options 5 minutes away.

Options for a hearty meal include the Cheesecake Factory, PF Chang or Maggiano's if you like Italian.

Then for me it's up and into the air and straight to sleep.
