There's not much you can "enhance" away from one floret of cauliflower in a ramekin.

Omit the brassica and call it a gazpacho?

August - Red Leicester cheese upgraded to Brie
September - starter ramekin brought out separately
October - roast dinner replaced with mince and potatoes
November - pudding served separately and upgraded to blancmange
December - revert back to cheese OR pudding. Merry Christmas.

Maybe reducing to 1 serving per flight - on demand. Or you must pre-order your food at least 24 hrs before or else you get no food.

Due to food prices rising, 'Chicken or Beef' now enhanced to 'Gruel or Soylent Green'?

I hope whatever BA is thinking in terms of "enhancements" has to be better than what AC and UA are serving in economy. It's absolutely disgusting.
