As another gay, seconded. Can we save the outrage for something substantial, like Brunei or the lack of same-sex marriage in NI, for example.

Great review and pics so thank you. Looking forward to trying in my F in a couple of weeks time.

And here we were thinking NI was not prepared to accept different rules to the rest of the UK...

Jokes aside, it was announced that the process will be complete by 7th April. It will be interesting to note whether these touches are missing on flights after that. One would hope not...well especially not ATL later this month.

My question, though: is 10h a long enough flight for sliders? its the name...

This gave me life.

I'm a lady and will be in F next Wednesday to Nashville, so can report back on the bag. Im pretty bummed about missing the Liberty bag, to the point I was begging my buddy on his work trips last week to get me one Temperley is just not the same. Someone mentioned on here that bag looks like something you would get as a free gift from the good people at Kotex, and I have to agree. Maybe it will look better in person.

Whilst we're on this topic, the verb should be "misspelt"

Same on all airlines, to my memory. Nothing like seeing the fear in a QR or EK crew member's eyes when you order something off that list and they have to go and dust off their only copy of "Cocktails For Dummies".

I flew in on BA69 to PHL yesterday and it really does feel like a step up. The flight attendants (who were very nice) seemed genuinely pleased with the new offering and were excited to show it off. I had the same menu as the OP. The canapés were lovely, as were the scallops and halibut (although the latter was a tad over-done). Ice cream with raspberries and chocolate straws was great and nicely presented. The Gin Zing was fine - probably a little light on gin as it tasted more like a mimosa. The Santenay was delicious with the starter and main course (as they really should be called!) and the colheita super, as usual. I didn't bed down, but got the female PJs to take back for my wife. The ladies' washbag is very brightly coloured and feels silky; nicer than the velour men's bag. A strong metal zip toggle on it, so it looks like it will last well (even though it will likely join the pile of Liberty washbags in a drawer somewhere).

Overall, I'm impressed with the offering and look forward to trying the new bedding and men's pyjamas on my flight back later this week.
