Roasted rump of lamb lamb galantine with fondant potato, carrot puree and mint jus

Spinach and ricotta tortellini with tomato sauce, olives, mizuna and frisee salad

Main course salad of chargrilled cornfed chicken with bacon lardons, potato straws and Caesar dressing
Consensus might be much to ask for but personally i'd go for the hake. I had it some months ago and liked it.

Back in the 90s BA did offer specials in F which were not on the menu. I doubt this option will return.

Travelling with an infant on lap. Would rather he eats than me, Can an adult pre order a kids meal in F on a flight? If so what is it likely to be?

Would try see if there was a spare meal but would this mean mean they wouldn’t load spare afternoon tea or would it be a seconds kids meal?

Thanks

You can only order the main course, you can ask for dessert, cheese and fruit and the crew will try and accommodate this.

Anyone tried this? I'm intrigued.

Although I always thought a galantine was supposed to be chicken (or some kind of poultry at the very least) and served cold? I thought lamb, beef, etc. served hot made it a ballottine?
