Thank you TobiasUK.

Basically anything that can be made with what already exists in the bars.

That the olives were picked by hand by Corleone & Sons ?

Or maybe that we can identify their parents? Genetic defects?

I'm on 268 Sunday night and based on the menu sent by You First is it safe to assume I won't be getting the new offerings? Its been a while since I've flown BA so I'm not familiar with the current menus.

If nothing else, fingers crossed for an A380 with wifi!

That’s the old menu indeed, though no doubt you will have a blast.

Here’s my menu for BA15 to Singapore in a fortnight, along with the wine list. Couple of new bits on there I think?

How did you get hold of that? My excitement at boarding the BA11 tomorrow evening is such that I almost can't wait to see what's on the menu!

Some sort of DOCG certificaiton for oil?

https://www.oliveoiltimes.com/olive-...y-health/57469
"A study carried out by the CNR of Perugia allowed Castello Monte Vibiano Vecchio to be among the first to use the DNA recognition for certifying extra virgin olive oil. “We receive a part of olives from small producers of this area,” Lorenzo Fasola Bologna explained. “They only cultivate local varieties according to our sustainable and certified approach, and we want to provide our consumers a verified quality assurance.”"

"Free range scrambled eggs"? Don't they mean "scrambled free range eggs"? Or did the scrambling take place out on the range? I would have thought that BA would know how to use the language to make the meaning clear.

Part of the menu is visible on your booking from around 30 days out - go to the section on Meals and you should see it. You can also email YouFirst (usin the contact form inside your booking on ba.com, but they'll still want lots of personal information from you for "GDPR" reasons) and they will send you a PDF of the full menu. This includes menus for inbound flights to London, which is useful as there's no other way to see these in advance!

ETA: in MMB, click on the individual flight, then Meals, then Order in-flight meals and you'll see something like this, which lists your main course options and has a link to click on a full menu, which includes starters, mains and desserts/cheese.

Couple of menus from new F. The BA122 DOHA -> LHR seems a little uninspiring.

Uninspiring to say the least.......
Except for the sliders on some menu's and the addition of crisps at snack time, the meals look just like the old ones. It will be interesting to hear about the new linens.
