Yeah I'm not a nut person either. Don't think I've had the pleasure of monster munches.....cheese puffs would be nice.

Never had caviar! Always wanted to try but when I went to the caviar concession in T5 and saw the prices I was happy never to try it!

That's what onboard meals are for in 1st class, so as to be able to try - personally, I would choose in order , chicken nuggets, nothing, caviar

Two minutes of 'smell' from someone bringing on MacD's vs 6 hours of snoring from someone who's consumed too much liquor on board.

I'll take the first one.

Given a choice between caviar and McDonald's chicken nuggets - it'll always be the nuggets.

would be nice to have those choices but sadly by worsening their digestion, consumption of fat foods increases rather than decreases a personís likelihood to fart, snore, etc.

I had guessed it would be EK....confirmed in the report when I saw the pair of chav trainers on the floor. Only brown brogues allowed in BA F you know.

McDonald's wouldn't fall into the delicious for me, but lots of people love it.

I will try it next time in F. :-) The pax could bring in food as they would in Economy: free will.

In the early 1990s United actually served McDonalds onboard their aircraft. I can't personally bring myself to describing that stuff as real food, but I do wish I had bought shares in the company years ago.

I once was offered fancy chocolate in BA First Class, and it did not really appeal so asked for Mars Bars from Club World and got an "Oh, no we can't do that" and it was suggested I go back to the Club World Galley to get one from there, and consume it there!
