New to Club World Question - Food

I found the menus for CE, but can't find them for CW. Are they on FT somewhere? Can someone help with link?

Flying SFO-LHR 7:00 pm & LHR-SFO 2:05 pm in June/July.

Thank you!

Congrats on your first CW flight - I hope you enjoy it! BA doesn't publish menu details in advance for CW, unfortunately (just First, one month or so in advance on request). Some people post pictures of their BA menu experiences here: try entering SFO into the "Search This Thread" box to see if anyone has posted about your flight - although this would only give you a rough idea of what to expect as the menu changes from month to month... Alternatively, you could try posting at the start of June/July to see if anyone has already flown the menu rotation fdor your flights and can share them with you.

I think your post got a bit lost due to the time you posted this morning, so someone else will probably be along soon with a bit more information...!

They don't publish menus, though as the pre-ordering food facility is rolled out you may find SFO gets added to the list of those destinations to which it's available. You would then see the exact menu in MMB at T-30 days.

Incidentally CE menus aren't published either. The examples in the Shorthaul Catering Guide thread are just that - examples of the sorts of things you can expect, not exact dishes; the food options are rotated regularly.

Have a good flight.

Lets face it, the choice is going to be between 'beef', 'chicken' or 'fish' - with 2 dishes being hot and 1 being cold....

Thanks all. I know it might seem kind of silly thinking about what I'm going to eat in 4 months, but I am excited about CW. I have been an economy flyer my entire life and just a few months ago we took the leap in to business for the first time. Have since flown ANA and United business long haul

Easy enough to figure out what you get in CW looks like.

Go to your nearest Tesco and look for the Tesco Value meals. That's what a CW meal looks and tastes like.

A couple of years ago it would have been more like "Tesco Finest" but all the penny pinching has taken its toll.

I am on my 'First BA First' in three weeks time, to Tokyo, and my wife and I are both quite fussy eaters.
It would be great to obtain copies of the menus in advance of the flights as you suggest.

How do we do this please ?

The two offerings in WTP from LHR to ORD on March 21 seem to be steak or Cumberland sausage. I suppose it will be harder to get the latter wrong!

Same two choices for LHR-SEA in March:

Seared fillet of British beef with smoked potato fondant, broccoli, carrots and a tellicherry black pepper sauce

Grilled Blythburgh free range Cumberland sausages, creamy mashed potatoes, roast butternut squash, green beans and a red wine and onion gravy

(Anyone have suggestions between the two?)
