No where is pork mentioned.
A full breakfast is a substantial cooked breakfast meal, often served in Great Britain and Ireland. The typical ingredients are bacon, sausages, eggs, black pudding, baked beans, tomatoes, mushrooms, toast, fried bread.

The point I’m making is nobody should assume a Full English contains pork.

Turkey bacon is to bacon as Rocky Mountain oyster is to shellfish. Bull something.

Cointreau has disappeared as well now have you noticed? That used to be rather good to perk-up warm champagne.

So much for positioning the airline to be more premium.

I think most people assume a full English has bacon (pork). Bit like if I ordered a full Welsh I would expect it to have soda Bread, and maybe a full Irish as well.

Doesn't BA already sell an afternoon tea that doesn't contain tea? Full breakfast without pork is just the logical next step.

Why not push a little harder for some premium champagne and a meal from F whilst you are at it?

Because those items have always been F only. Im not asking for F when Ive paid J but get peeved when what was always J is first completely removed and then returned for F only. I do not consider a Cognac something for F only. By all means offer varying quality of product between the classes but I take exception to its removal. The crew, by the way, usually agree, hence their willingness to be flexible. And its usually when the IFM asks at their greeting if theres anything else they can get me that I mention it. Most are not even aware its been enhanced away.

so anything BA ever served in J Is grand fathered into your assumptions of what you deserve on a flight?
