Arrow Long haul in-flight catering 2023 | Club World

Iíve re-launched this thread as a place for us to share some details about the in-flight food and beverages served in BA Club World. Hopefully as the posts populate over time, it will give us an idea of what food we can expect to receive on our upcoming flights. This supercedes the previous Club World dining - restoration of full menu - 28 October 2022 and Long haul in-flight catering | Club World threads

As this will build into a popular resource, it would be a great help to others if you can remove any photos from the posts you quote. A sister thread for the discussion of the more existential and general aspects of BA's catering strategy is linked below.

How does the Club World meal service out of Gatwick compare to Heathrow these days?

Also, what would the second meal be on the Orlando route? Thanks.

Can’t compare LGW TO LHR recently, but for LGW to the Caribbean here’s the menu from BA2159 LGW-UVF/GND ON 31 Dec 22. Didn’t take any photos I’m afraid but the Prosciutto was fabulous. Asian inspired beef was ok but nothing special. Sticky toffee pudding was middling but the custard (caramel sauce?) and presentation was good. Mrs Allycat had the butternut squash gnocchi and was slightly underwhelmed and also surprised about how big the gnocchi were. Afternoon tea - sandwiches were standard but cake and scones were top notch. Wine list was ok. Vivino pointed me to the second option in each group but the Chardonnay had been substituted with something Italian so I skipped that and stuck with the Cabernet Sauvignon.

Thanks so much, really useful. Actually, on bottom of the beverages page, it lists the two Orlando flight numbers too, so this gives me a good idea! Wonder what the January menu will bring us..

Last time I flew MCO was summer 2022 and the second meal was afternoon tea.

Iíve been rebooked from Qatar to the 08:50 BA122.

Any suggestions what breakfast and a 2nd meal from DOH would involve? Or from other early morning Middle East destinations like KWI, BAH etc.?

This was the second Ďmealí on LGW to MCO last year. I doubt itís changed much even with the CW catering changes that have recently occurred.

This was the same menu for BA61 from LHR to MLE, so I won't repeat the menu pics, but here are some different items pictured (ricotta Mezzaluna and Apple Crumble). Lacked imagination that the two non meat items for dinner and breakfast both featured mushrooms!

That always annoys me! They do it with cauliflower too. I love cauliflower but hate mushrooms so it's always a bit of a gamble on BA for me.

Why is it that BA can't pre-publish the menus, as many other airlines do (even in Economy)? That way we can all make informed choices and as a result will feel happier about our flights! Right now I am still uncertain about what choices to make, as I don't know what is offered from Chennai back to LHR in World Traveller Plus, which is the next BA flight on the schedule. I know that's off this topic, but if anyone knows that would be really helpful.
