The menu posted by Gomac is for F. If you’re in F, you can dine when you please, though I would advise telling the CC what you would like when they first come to take orders, so it can be kept for you. You can either tell them when you’d like to eat, or just tell them that you’ll give them 30-40 mins notice when you’re ready. Of course, if you want to avail of the second meal too, I guess you wouldn’t wait too long for lunch.

Sounds good. We will have just had breakfast in the Concorde lounge so I was hoping for a few hours at least in between meals.

Why is it not possible to pre-order if you have an indirect flight? Flying from LGW to Grenada in CW in April and it's not possible to pre-order, because there's a stop in Saint Lucia. The second part is only a short hop from Saint Lucia to Grenada (30 minutes, probably no service). People flying to Saint Lucia can pre-order their meal. Does not make much sense to me...

Hopefully this is interesting - BA7 to HND on April 24th in F, Menu just opened up:

Starters

· Tuna tataki, Cured mackeral, ginger and chives, Wagyu tataki, truffle ponzu

· Vitello tonnato

· Warm miso and teriyaki glazed aubergine

· Sweet potato soup and coconut and kaffir lime

· Lobster clear soup

· Mixed leaf salad served with Honey mustard dressing

Main

· Seared fillet of Scottish beef, red wine jus, potato terrine

· Pan fried turbot, balsamic soy sauce, White asparagus and bonito

· Roasted free range British spring chicken, with lemon and rosemary, potato puree, chicken jus

I have to ask, does anyone know if the agnolotti is vegetarian or not? My wife is and I wanted to avoid ordering a vegetarian meal if at all possible! I googled but it says it can have a meat or vegetarian filling... I am assuming maybe it is the morels as listed above but difficult to tell.

That's the new, 'improved' CW service - after the trolley's were removed we've essentially been left with the same food and service, but with one less choice of main. A genuine BA enhancement. Fingers crossed switching to Do & Co will be an actual improvement, although can't say I was all that impressed with their food to JFK.

Cookies are in the club kitchen with all the other snacks, hot chocolate I'm not sure, she could bring a sachet on board and ask for hot water? 😁

Thats great, thanks. She’ll be happy.
I think because she had the Hot Chocolate and Cookies on her first (modern) CW flight and that was as a Sleeper Service, she thought it would be available on all overnight flights.
