British Airways has begun teasing a special centenary inflight menu from Michelin-starred chef Tom Kerridge.
As yet there are no specific details of what customers can expect, but according to Facebook and Instagram posts published yesterday, the menu will be available on flights departing Gatwick and Heathrow during August, “featuring culinary treats in all our cabins”.
British Airways traces its history back to August 1919, when Aircraft Transport and Travel Limited launched the world’s first daily international scheduled air service, between London and Paris.
So far centenary initiatives have included aircraft sporting retro liveries, the Speedbird 100 ale in partnership with Brewdog, a reimagined Flower Duet theme, limited edition Marmite jars, a centenary afternoon tea service, and a limited edition whisky poured at the Inchdairnie distillery in Fife, Scotland.
The carrier has also launched an online Centenary Archive Collection, featuring “never-before-seen” photographs and videos, spanning its 100-year history, as well as an interactive timeline.
