Club Europe Catering Guide - September 2018 onwards

This thread outlines the new arrangements for Club Europe catering introduced on Wednesday 12 September 2018 based on 5 bands (Express, and Bands 1-4). The main information piece - in terms of timings and the distance zones for the meals can be found in post 1. The following cross references the photos below against the matrix of options. In addition to the photos, some FTers have written extensively on their experiences so there is more to this thread than the pictures. Also note that the menus for LGW routes rotate monthly, whereas LHR routes rotate bi-weekly

Please keep this thread clear for for reviews, menu descriptions, and photos. For chat about the new service arrangements there is a dedicated thread has now been set up for this Club Europe catering opinions and general discussion

Please do not quote photos in this thread.

The previous shorthaul catering guide for Sunday 26 March 2017 to Tuesday 11 September 2018 is now locked, but is to be found here.

Numbers relate to the post number. Vegetarian means the alternative option provided as standard rather than the special meals. The pre-ordered special meals are AVML (Asia-vegetarian), CHML(children meal), DBML (diabetic meal), GFML (gluten free), HNML (Hindu non-vegetarian meal), KSML (Kosher meal), LCML (low calorie meal), LFML (low fat meal), NLML (low-lactose meal), LSML (low salt meal), MOML (Muslim meal), VGML (vegan meal), and VLML (lacto-ovo vegetarian).

There are differences between the offering in/out of LHR, LGW, and BA CityFlyer routes operated from LCY, STN, BRS, BHX, MAN, EDI, and DUB. For BA CityFlyer flights please refer to this guide created by zappomatic BA CityFlyer catering guide

No, they don't, catering is done by Newrest. And BACF doesn't serve BHD either - landing an A320 at LCY would be interesting. So I suspect it's a typo for LHR.

LHR-STR 06-Sep-18 07:50

Op-Up at the gate gave me a surprise experience of a Band 1 breakfast. Sat in 1A, I got a choice of three options, which I think is unusual for a Band 1? Full english, vegetarian omelette, or a "Scandinavian style" cold plate. Since I was expecting ET I'd already eaten plenty in the lounge, so opted for the Scandi style:



Pretty good, and nice to have something slightly more brunchy, since it was my third breakfast of the day. In hindsight, not sure a croissant really went with the cheese and ham, but that was my fault for picking it out of the bread basket...

This is an afternoon tea service (cheese ploughman's) from a band 2 London-bound flight (second meal rotation). It is almost the same as the afternoon tea service in post #71 (band 1 London-bound, first meal rotation). Only the cake is different.



Hasn't the third two-week rotation begun today? One member of cabin crew told me that that there will be four rotations. Can anyone confirm this?
BTW I have edited post #287 (there was a wrong picture and quote).

BA1330 LHR-NCL on 10/10/18. Was way to much to eat on such a short flight. The main is fish with more fish as a side and the dessert being heavenly as usual.
This was a KSML.

I had the same as this on BA1334 today (14.25 LHR - NCL) except that I had a strawberry tart instead of the yellow cake.

I really wish they wouldn't do fish (other than smoked salmon) for kosher meals....., but this doesn't look bad other than that it's overly fishy

I much prefer fish to any type of meat on such short flights.

I honestly can't work out what fish this could be, other than one with wings and feathers.

You appear to be unconvinced?

That is a chicken breast all day long ... until you actually taste it I suspect (hope!).
