Here is the roast dinner they served from LHR - JFK yesterday. There were no menus so had to guess what everything was:

Roast chicken, potatoes, vegetables, gazpacho, apple crumble and cheese.



Welsh rarebit:




I don't know what everyone is complaining about - I thought it was delicious! Just like being back at school again.

Flying CDG-LHR-EWR next week, really wish I had taken the AA option now rather than BA.

Same, have a jfk-lhr-bcn trip next week, and really wishing I took the AA, or even IB option over BA. At least my trip back the following week will be on AA

That first meal is like a beige colour chart.

Traveling on Tuesday LHR-DFW and now debating if I should accept the food offered as pre-booking food is still not allowed, or stick with my KSML. :/

10p in my day (and yes, that is post decimalisation...). Looking at the BA offering they probably only spent 1.50 on it anyway.

I think you have your facts(speculation) wrong - Hermolis still provide BA CE KSML catering. I have consumed x6/7 meals during/post covid and they are all better than the standard CE offering.

Oh, come on. When are you ever going to get the chance to try a delicious Welsh rarebit on AA?! Honestly, it was lovely. Much nicer than your fancy salads and sundaes...

I asked this question on the Dubai thread but then realized it probably belongs on this one. Does anyone know:

(1) What meals are served in Club World on the BA 106 (2:15 AM departure from DXB) overnight flight to LHR? Is it a snack followed by full breakfast?

(2) How about meals in WT Plus on the BA 109 (8:00 PM departure from LHR) overnight flight to DXB? Is it dinner or breakfast or both?
