British Airways has unveiled changes to its World Traveller Plus service, including new menus and amenity kits.

The changes will roll out over the next few months, with a new dining menu launching on February 1.

This will see passengers offered a third main meal option, as well as a “more substantial hot second meal later in the flight”.

The new dining menus will be followed in the spring by new amenity kits, quilts and pillows.

The carrier launched a new World Traveller Plus seat last year, which is being fitted to selected B777 aircraft operating from Gatwick, and which features a 50 per cent larger IFE screen, and six-way adjustable leg, foot and headrest.

The new seat will also be line-fitted to BA’s new A350s when they are delivered from later this year – aircraft which will also features the carrier’s brand new business class product.
