COVID Friendly Catering Revealed By British Airways

British Airways has today revealed a new onboard catering offering in response to the current global pandemic. The typical product will be temporarily swapped out with pre-packaged food, reducing the contact involved in serving the meals.

An improvement, but still seems to fall far short of other operators who are able to offer pretty much their normal service. The CW offering still looks pretty pathetic.

So we will, or won't, get alcoholic drinks in CE?

Defiently an improvement on the current offering. Do you think that one can pre-order special meals as they come packaged like the new offering?
I'm thinking of KSML's.

I like the style and it all looks very classy, although there could be a bit more food. I just hope we’re back to full hot meals by 2021.

The only thing I’d say is that why isn’t the CE offering the same as the F afternoon tea. The afternoon tea looks much better than what will be offered within Europe.



F Afternoon Tea

CE meal

With alcohol and a flat bed, I will survive long-haul.

Not the same, but actually looks pretty decent. "ENJOY YOUR MENU!" seems odd though - that would taste like cardboard
