A mass market granola bar, thimble of yoghurt and a soggy congealed muffin that is lower quality than you'd find in 7-Eleven. Some may remember, pre the Club World catering improvements, complaints about the plastic box of fruit and box of Special K. Those look positively decadent compared to what's on offer now.
And I don't get it as the Club Europe meal I had after connecting in LHR gets a big thumbs up.

Flew MEX-LHR-CPT and back recently, so I'll be posting each leg in its seperate posts.

​​​BA243 MEX-LHR March 27th

Nothing special. Gin Zing and dessert were the highlight.

BA59 LHR-CPT March 28th

Lamb was delicious and the Gin Zing still hit the spot! Omellete seemed pretty healthy (low calorie). It was a bit bland so I had to add some salt.

BA58 CPT-LHR April 7th

Beef was fine and Omelette was cheesy (which I like). Didn't appreciate the floooded cheese. Gin Zing and self made Spanish Calimotxos helped me sleep a solid 7hrs! 😉

BA242 LHR-MEX April 8th.

​​​​​​Same dinner offering as LHR-CPT but with a pre arrival snack rather than brekkie. Again, lamb shank for the win! Pre arrival meal was good as well.

Bonus pic...delicious street tacos right before going to sleep and help us forget the sh!t show that was MEX immigration. Taco cart was near the Hyatt Regency. USD$1.75 each and they were pretty big... Yum!!!

Speaking as someone who likes pink beef, the last time I had the beef was HKG-LHR. I had just come out of hospital that day after surgery to repair a broken wrist. My OH had to saw though the beef to chop it up for me. Basically overcooked and requires plenty chewing! You’ll be fine with the beef!

Here is from yesterday's LHR-IAD

I forgot to take pics of the actual food

The Lamb was probably one of the best meals I've had on a plane, or at least in a very long time !

Not sure how the tiramisu got a British flag ​​​​​​​

LGW-MCO yesterday. The pork was actually ok and my partner said that the risotto was delicious. Afternoon tea is minuscule and we were both still hungry afterwards. The piece of cake really was tiny, barely one mouthful.

TLV-LHR April 16

Same menu as post 933. I got the chicken tikka masala which I though was just ok, my wife really enjoyed. My son got the lamb and was incredibly complimentary of it. He’s 7, so take with a grain of salt

here’s my plate - note the bread not in a basket. Everyone else has a basket. My tray also suffered from IBS (incomplete butter syndrome)

Breakfast was pretty sad and the beef was dry. I’ve had much better experiences with American.

BA189: LHR-EWR Apr 17

I got the fish pie this time. It was actually quite good. The cheese plate, however, is really weak. It’s like a lame AA domestic cheese selection. BA could certainly do better.
Also, the butter façade thing has to be intentional - every single butter dish is the same way. So funny.






And here was the pre-arrival avocado and ricotta on rye, which was not good.

The Burrata seems to have reverted back to coleslaw

I didn’t see burrata listed on the menu, have I missed it?
