I have managed to select my main course online for a trip from LHR to PHX early September. However it is not possible to select starters or desserts online. Does anyone know what the starters and desserts will be on this route?

My LHR-SIN J menu is distinctedly unimpressive, especially the main. Has anyone tried the pork belly with soy and ginger sauce (I remember there was a chicken with the same on a past flight but did not have it) and/or the asparagus tortellini with asparagus sauce (I'm worried about something very creamy). The third option is seared beef fillet which is always a bit of a risk... Thanks!

Unfortunately it's unlikely to be similar as JFK gets a different F menu to other routes on account of the DO & CO catering.

Deleted, just read the thread and noticed my September LHR - PEK in F is pretty much identical to the one Rookersa already posted save for a different fish starter.

I interpret that to be a pastry pie with mashed potato as an accompaniment rather than a pie with a mashed potato topping, but could be wrong. Neither should be anywhere near an F menu as far as I'm concerned - the entire description sounds like something you might get in a plastic tray in Y.
