Club Europe serving alcohol?

Are the CE routes serving alcohol? I know the food is a little lunchbox - but drinks choice?

Can confirm normal bar service in CE. I may or may not have had 2 mini bottles
of champagne and a Bloody Mary a few hours ago.

Pleasingly it's the Lighthouse NZSB for white wine drinkers of the same persuasion

The Nicolas Feuillette is pleasant. I managed 2 to AMS yesterday.

Probably worth directly asking what you want, drink wise. My crew yesterday were great but was a EF/WW mix. I could hear questions re the galley layout from row 1.

Good detail. The lady that took my Bloody Mary order I know was suspect as she didnít ask about Tabasco, lemon or ice.

She came back 2 minutes after the order to confirm tabasco which confirmed it. I was dreading being the first DYKWIA victim so took the slightly chilled un-citrusíd BM with a ďthank you very muchĒ.

BA CityFlyer are yet to start operations. I believe this will happen on the 10th July.

There has been no word of their proposed catering offerings, but Iím sure it will be reduced.

normal? Or still single-use plastic glasses, cutlery and everything else. Itís probably very hygienic but that Swedish teenage girl must be doing her nut!

Plazzy cups, no ice/slice. But the full selection is available.

Slightly OT but I donít understand why BA hasnít moved towards disposal Compostable cutlery and drinking glasses/cups. There are lots of bamboo type options available and would go some way to keeping to covid19 safety and reducing single use plastic.

I imagine they are using stuff they already have & that they have supply chains/agreements for. No idea on the cost implication but I suspect anyone who might otherwise have reviewed what disposable items are used onboard probably hasn't been at work most of the last 3-4 months...
