British Airways is offering First dining at home from next week. The airline, along with partners Feast Box and Do and Co, is offering “a limited-edition travel-inspired recipe box with first class menus and ingredients”.
The intention is that the orders ‘mirror’ the First cabin dining experience. It is the latest airline to offer at home dining.
Each meal kit includes a four-course menu ‘inspired’ by the food served in the British Airways’ First cabin.
There is a choice of vegetarian, fish and meat dishes in the kit, which contains the full ingredients to cook the meal at home, along with a recipe sheet and an information card in the form of a passport.
Each meal kit will cost from £80 and serve two people.
500 kits will be available for delivery in the first week and deliveries in the first week will receive a bottle of Hattingley Valley English sparkling wine, currently served in British Airways’ First cabin and made exclusively for the airline.
A sample menu is:
- Loch Fyne smoked salmon timbale with honey mustard dressing
- Slow cooked British beef cheeks with Jalapeno potato gratin, tenderstem broccoli and chimichurri
- Cheese selection of Caws Golden cenarth, Snowdonia Black Bomber Cheddar, Harrogate blue and Kidderton ash goats cheese with chutney
- Dark chocolate and orange liqueur bread & butter pudding with vanilla sauce
Both the outer and interior packaging of the meal kits consists of recyclable, compostable or biodegradable materials. The food is sourced, where seasonality allows, from the UK and Ireland including smoked salmon from Loch Fyne in Scotland and beef cheeks from heritage UK breeds.
Hamish McVey, Head of Brands and Marketing at British Airways said: “We hope that this exclusive First experience will allow our customers who are missing flying to enjoy an amazing dining experience at home. British Airways, Feast Box and Do and Co take huge pride in offering top quality international cuisine, and although it might appear a little different being delivered to a customer’s door rather than at 38,000 feet, we hope it will be just as exciting.”
The kits are available to order from today with deliveries beginning next week.
As part of the offer, Feast Box is giving an additional complimentary box from their regular offering which will be delivered the week after the order from the British Airways First dining offer.
Customers for the offer will also receive a voucher for 10 per cent discount on any new booking on British Airways marketed and operated flights when spending a minimum of £200 (any route and cabin as long as return ex-UK).
