Thanks, although the Wiki suggests otherwise (at least for the bubbly Harrogate).

To confirm, sparkling water should always be available on a Euro Traveller bar service except for AMS and RTM. There will be occasions when in error it hasnt been loaded; also its very popular on German routes and certain band 3s so could run out on the outbound since only two bottles are loaded and Club will be prioritised for any remaining supplies on the return.

Ice should always be part of the bar set-up - it wont be taken out on the breakfast or band 3 sandwich trolley. During the summer the supply on inbound band 3s can be a little sparse due to melting on the outbound.

Due to excessive wastage, band 3 Euro Traveller now gets half a sandwich rather than the previous full sandwich or roll (seriously, the amount of food thrown away was shocking). If youre hungry please dont be afraid to ask for seconds.

Euro Traveller: Vegan New York Deli sandwich (applewood smoked vegan cheese alternative and gherkin with rocket dressed with gherkin Dijon mustard mayonnaise and vegan slaw on farmers bread)

This is surprisingly tasty and filling, plenty of flavours going on and you cant tell that its not real cheese.
