I wouldn't worry, it was a very politely worded request, which you are free to ignore or to ponder over, I didn't even register your comment, let alone take offence at it. Some people perhaps think differently, so you may or may not wish to take it into account in the future.

But let us not get too diverted by this, I think you have the "scoop" on the new product, for which many congratulations, and I'm sure we best focus on the new product and reactions to it.

I like the idea of cocktails - whilst definitely ‘cocktails lite’ given it is what’s already in the bar, it’s a nice touch, adds a bit of premium feel, and I imagine will be well taken up.

I saw this on a couple of previews of the menu and thought the same thing. I dislike the terms 'appetisers' and 'entrees' and it seems very "un-British" for a flagship First product. What is wrong with starters and main course?!

The main(perhaps the only?) thing I see wrong with the new thing is the menu. The appetiser, and far more seriously, the entree. Please, could BA use British English?

Not many people would fine the starter and the main courses confusing, but the entree can be taken two different ways, for a start, but really, could you please look after British English better, British Airways?

Quite. Attacking American English is often just misplaced snobbery (clearly there are exceptions - "I could[n't] care less" should be punishable by a month of talking quietly, wearing dark socks and eating supper later than 6pm) but you'd think BA First at least could use British English terms...

I'm not sure what's really changed here compared to the F flight I took last week: Slightly different PJs, a few cocktails and new champagne glass. Scratching my head but maybe I'm missing something here.

From the pictures I think I prefer the Liberty bags. However the new glasses and cocktails look nice.

'Cold cuts' is too American-English for me.
