I am flying this Friday on BA 98 to YYZ. Based on #15 and #16 I have decided to change my "Special Meal" (of which I cannot remember as I chose it a month ago and for "privacy reasons" BA will not allow me to see MY choice) to Beef etc.

This "privacy reasons" is pure bullocks as BA allows me to view MY customer info and seat selections. Why not my "Special Meal" choice? Am I NOT "special enough"? I guess flying CW is not "special enough". Sigh 🙄 and 🤔

In spite of flying to different destinations in the same month (with the same menu), I wonder if you will both be flying on the same aircraft with the same registration number. If so, that would (all together) be more than a coincidence 😉

i had the sea trout and was a bit disappointed. Too much sauce, too heavy, and the soy glazed salsifis did not work well (I love salsifis) though fish itself was nice.
