BA 55 LHR to JNB in mid-April

WTP choice of:

Braised British beef with broccoli, cassoulet of beans, carrot balls and rosemary jus

Chicken tikka masala and Jeera pilau with tadka dal

Will probably go with the curry. Don't want to go through the BA beef lottery.

Are there routes that don't have a pre-appetiser then? Can't see one for my flight to BAH 20 April. Shorter routes, perhaps?

I guess this will be the option at the end of April too? (Ba175)

Edit: The answer is yes, just seen it online

Methinks it might be the terrine, followed by he lamb and cheese and see if I have some fruit with it? Will almost certainly need a tooth brush at the ready with all the garlic and spring onions...
Flavour good but presentation sloppy, washed down by a reasonable Chardonnay from Burgundy and Rioja. Breakfast was somewhat so so with the normal pallid BA sausage and very smokey bacon - albeit the sausage was tasty. Crew were fantastic though and kept coming round with drinks and tea and biscuits

Any word on how these three are?
  • Seared fillet of Aberdeen Angus, braised beef cheek with parmentier potatoes, watercress salad, chanterelle mushroom and shallot and tomato jus
  • Roasted North Atlantic cod fillet and king prawns with caper, tomato vinaigrette, hispi cabbage, saffron potato and cauliflower purée
  • BBQ pulled pork on manoucher bread, crisp bacon with Monterey jack cheese, spiced potato wedges and Moroccan slaw
They are on my menu this Sunday.

Anyone who has the lamb shank on their menu, do order it - had it last week and it was one of the best meals I’ve had on a plane, and the chocolate beetroot thing sounds awful but was good too.
