Sleeper service JFK - LHR

I've booked Mrs Bus and Midibus in J (UUA) on BA114 when they come back from their trip to the US in August.


I'm familiar with sleeper service on the RUH-LHR route.

114 is a sleeper route. Is the food in the T7 lounge any good?

If you don’t eat in the lounge there is plenty of food onboard, we don’t really do a reduced sleeper service any longer.

We did this in late November. The food in the Club World dining area was horrible. The food in the normal part of the lounge was okay and the food in the first part (I.e. BA Gold or equivalent) was pretty good.

The food on board the plane was fantastic.

Itís fine and plentiful, unless they have super high standards.

It's mediocre at best. Why not eat in Manhattan and then head out to the airport?

What food is typically on offer in the JFK BA first class lounge (not CCR)? I haven't flown through T7 in ages. But last time I was there the flight left about 7pm ish and the only food was cold sandwiches, cheese and chocolate bars. The food on offer in the BA business lounge (not the Club pre dining) was slightly better.

Well the food in the BA T7 First lounge was underwhelming, I don't recall any hot food options. Anyway what is typically on offer these days?

The only problem with the new CW food out of JFK is it's so much better than the pre flight dining that it tempts people to eat on the plane instead of the lounge thereby negating the main benefit of the sleeper service. It doesn't take many people dining for the service & cutlery chinking to disturb my sleep. Hopefully they will up the quality of the lounge offering or make UD a no dining area for those who just want to sleep.

The general lounge buffet in GC/GF is also pretty poor along with the lounge itself. Hopefully the refurbishment will bring things up to the standard of the excellent Boston lounge.

The stuff that is cooked fresh in front of you is sometimes decent. I’ve recently had Tacos and noodles. Both were perfectly adequate pre-flight food.

Im not a hater of the Club dining at JFK but clearly I’m in the minority here!
