Coconut oil can be dried and turned into powder. Funnily enough I know quite a few Italians who are partial to Nescafé Gold Blend, and there is a big market for it there, which there isn't in (e.g.) France. Anyway, the BA BoB coffee is much better than bog standard airline coffee, it's quite clever in using a micro filter to allow ground coffee in the air.
+1 for the most informative post of the day!

.....By tearing open the sachet, tipping the contents into a cup, and pouring hot water! To paraphrase the old Cresta ads, "it's frothy man!"

It will do - in the air!
So did you bring your own instant cappuccino packet?

Carering wise, yes the BoB menu isn't great and the lack of availability just makes it worse. But when did you get cappuccinos in economy class even in long haul?

European air travel has become extremely basic these recent years, no matter which airline you fly I'm afraid this is the reality when you fly infra-Europe economy.
Well said I agree
