BA to introduce Fish and Chips to SH menu

Doesn't say whether it will be in CE or ET (though I would assume the former latter?)

It's ET on Band 4 flights.
It is just a trial at the moment to see if customers like it and only on the outbound sector.

Looking again the packaging does look more in line with ET. A CE passenger eating from a cardboard box? I can just hear the cries of the DYKWIA's!

Though I suppose they could always tip the box out on a bit of china in CE!

Hmmm, I don't know. There's nothing worse than a soggy chip. Well, maybe a soggy bottom

For some reason there aren't so many Brits on the Kiev services at the moment (and they cancelled this morning's early service), so I'm not sure what Ukrainians are going to make of this. The later flight leaves around 09:50, and so it seems odd to serve that at 10:30 am BST. I certainly like the idea of it, full marks for having a trial of it. I have a Kiev coming up in the next few days, albeit it appears I'm in the inappropriate class of travel.....

Wife on the St Petersburg flight in couple weeks, being Russian, not sure what she will make of it. Also as CWS said, I like fish and chips but as the flight leaves in morning not sure if I would like it in the morning

The picture at start of thread shows two bits of fish with "succulent lightly coated batter" - bet that is rather ambitious esp for BA when it rolls out.......

Yum, I think this looks really good! In fact, I wouldn't mind it in CE with some mushy peas on the side. A very nice ET offering, can imagine the cabin will smell like a chip shop during the meal service though (especially around me as I like extra vinegar)!

Looks good and great idea. ^ If executed well by the caterers that is!

Yuck. Bringing Britain's most disgusting culinary "delight" to the skies then. I don't eat seafood and am already unlucky enough to constantly get fish-based salads on Band 1&2 CE. If this narrows down my choice of meal on the longer routes too, I'll stop flying CE/drop down to EC Silver/fly Virgin instead (delete as appropriate)

Seriously though, if they manage to pull it off and it won't ever be the only option offered to me - go on then, some people might actually enjoy it!

That's what I was thinking...might make the cabin smell awful!

I'm off to Santorini and Mykonos on BA in a few weeks, would be nice to get some fish and chips! (although they weren't mentioned in the in BusinessTraveller, maybe as neither has launched yet). Is there a choice of mains in ET on Band 4?

Surely there should be plenty of decent fresh fish in Mykonos without having to rely on BA catering!
