Those dessert pots are the best part of the meal! I'd rather have small and good quality than the opposite.

Not stung by OB in the end then.

Got to agree with this, as someone who spends more time down the back of the bus, it's far and away the highlight of a WT meal.

The dessert pot is usually the bit I leave.

Interesting. Different strokes for different folks I guess?

Everyone seemed to get one in WT+. Could have been a light load in WT or there were enough.
WT+ did get a snack box with a full sized Twix, small bag of popcorn and crisps in it. If there had been a choice rather than both, I would have preferred ice cream.

We flew out to Las Vegas on Tuesday and had that snack box too. Wasn't sure whwther it was normal or part of the new enhanced service

I eat them if they're edible!

On a recent flight the "starter" was a couscous salad that was pretty tasty. It looked boring, but was nicely flavoured - this was in WT+, but the starter should be the same as WT. I scarfed it down promptly.

Some other starters are terrible offences against food. AA have a tendency to serve a particularly grim concoction of almost unflavoured soft orzo pasta with generic feta-like crumbles on top and a pomegranate seed or two - in business class! Various economy options on both AA and BA have been equally unappetizing.

That's part of the normal service on a Vegas. In WT/WT+ Vegas has 3 services, - main meal after departure, mid flight snack box then hot wrap before landing.

How do you work that out? It's not currently part of the WTP offering.

Personally I'd say by definition of the product name World Traveller Plus should offer everything World Traveller has and more.

Yeap, me too. It's in the name, WT+ should have WT plus... . The mid-flight ice cream/snack should surely also be for WT+? (LHR-BWI had main meal, ice cream and 'afternoon tea' the other day).

Word on the street is that it’s due for a full product revamp.

Stand by for ‘World Traveller Minus’
