According to BA, or Do&Co, this is an onion bhaji. Hmmm. Pretty to look at but a huge disappointment as I quite fancied what I call an onion bhaji. This was a rock hard piece of pitta-like bread with some unidentifiable veg inside, hard, impossible to eat with knife and fork and really bland. I eat anything....but I didn't finish this. Pud, melon and the mini-salad with those red crunchy seeds (pomegranate?) were all nice. Crew said 'just cut through the string' to open it. A BA knife did not work so I improvised with my new implants (teeth...) Maybe Do&Co sold this as an passenger entertainment food experience?

A very odd meal for a breakfast service. Spongthrush was this a ‘special meal’ or one of the regular meal options?

It was one of two regular meal options offered in Club, sorry, can't recall the alternative. Crew said it was new and thought it slightly odd.

Come back ham and cheese croissant; all is forgiven.

Club Europe catering

Why sort of meal should I expect in Club Europe on an 8.45 am departure from LHR to Funchal?

Thanks

that was my assumption, but is it a decent breakfast or just some scraps?

There's a whole thread on the subject, including changes that have happened in the last couple of days, here.

Possibly a squashed warm croissant.

Eat and drink well in the lounge so that the onboard offering does not leave you hungry! You should get a decent tray with a choice of hot breakfasts rather than the squashed croissant.

If you're really unlucky, an onion bhaji.

As catering is now back to normal, on a Band 4 route such as FNC it will be a choice of two hot options or a continental breakfast, with fruit and yogurt / Bircher muesli, and a selection of warm pastries.

Band 2 KSML lunch yesterday: hot-smoked salmon starter, chicken breast with couscous salad main, some caramel mousse-type dessert. Pleasant enough (although the chicken breast was rather dry). The downside of moving back to 'normal' catering is that we are back to cold salads rather than hot meals at lunchtime on band 2.

The choice this afternoon on the EDI to LHR was a poke bowl (described as Asian vegetarian) and a roast beef and potatoe salad plate. I had the poke and it was absolutely delicious! It had a soy/sesame dressing and a wasabi cream but the whole thing was yummy. I would definitely have it again and it was much improved on the stuff the have been serving!
