Good to see there there will now be a craft beer option. Up until now it’s only been the Adnam’s option on the the Buy on Board offering.

Edit: it will be in selected lounges as well as onboard.

Full press release here: http://mediacentre.britishairways.co...10914?ref=News

Few more details:

Cans of the bespoke IPA, named Speedbird 100 after the airline’s call sign, will be exclusively available to British Airways customers on board all long-haul and short-haul flights and in selected lounges from May 1.
In another first, BrewDog, will open their first bar in New York in British Airways’ Club lounge at JFK’s Terminal 7. Customers will be able to enjoy BrewDog’s headline craft beers, along with Speedbird 100. British Airways’ new Club lounge at JFK opens this Spring, completing the airline’s investment in Terminal 7.
From May 1 Executive Club members can also enjoy a 10 per cent discount on all food and drink in BrewDog bars across the UK when they show their Executive Club card and a 10 per cent discount on merchandise on brewdog.com.

Meh, at least it's going to be better than what's on board right now. Could be better, but it'll do for Y

It's a bit one-dimensional when all "craft beers" are pretty much the same kind of beer.

For many craft beer lovers this will be a little like the Club Suite. Going from behind the competition to potentially well ahead

Very clever marketing to a different demographic. Brewdog have certainly changed the industry, I look forward to sampling some. I may even have to pop into T3 galleries on my next trip just to get some.

Very happy to see craft beer get some love, whether I end up enjoying this particular one or not.

Enjoyed the interview, and I suspect we'll see a lot more British brands doing this kind of thing in the coming months for UK PLC.

I would add... the interview answers on jetlag advice is certainly bold

What is your go-to travel hack or packing tip?

JW When you get to somewhere, drink one beer and one coffee for each hour of time difference. Which means if you’re going to Tokyo, it’s eleven beers and eleven coffees on your first day. Beats jetlag every time.

MD Instead of travelling with bottles of beer, travel with cans of beer. They’re way less likely to break.
Japan is only 9 hours IIRC, but I guess you can't be too careful!

I think that is a great idea, and another good improvement from BA recently!
Seems like they have realised that they need to embark on something different from everybody else finally
