BA HAS INTRODUCED its new “restaurant-style” dining service in Club World, with passengers being offered a choice of starters and desserts from display trolleys.
Part of the carrier’s £400 million investment in Club World, it is initially being offered on the London Heathrow-New York JFK route, with plans to roll it out across the network.
Customers are offered a choice of four starters from the trolley: Loch Fyne smoked salmon tartare; burrata and tomato carpaccio; creamy butternut squash soup; and fresh seasonal salad and grilled vegetables.
Main courses are served plated as before, with the initial choice being beef gnocchi in Café de Paris sauce with asparagus; grilled Dover sole with lentils, celeriac mousseline and lemon butter; and artichoke and ravioli Parmesan. Desserts offered via the trolley include Do and Co’s double chocolate medley, lemon tart and apple strudel.
