The on board menu looks terrific out to New York. Great choice…fillet of beef, chicken, sea bass, pasta, salad…or offer of ‘ working lunch’ later in the flight.

Wine list looks OK, the Château Bournac looks to be the outstanding choice, a shame the nasty Blue Top still keeps making an appearance, though the (entry level Bollinger) Ayala isn’t half bad.

A bit sparse from NYC back to London, but looking forward to sampling the JFK Terraces Dining Room pre-flight and then getting a good night’s sleep on board:

Here’s the menu for New York to London:

Welcome aboard this Club World
London City service to New York.

British Airways is proud to be working
in collaboration with Roast to design
and develop your onboard menu today.

Roast is a popular restaurant drawing on
the best of Britain’s seasonal produce and
cooking traditions set in a landmark building
in London’s oldest surviving food market,
Borough Market, just by London Bridge.

We have created a dynamic food development
team combining the years of inflight catering
experience of British Airways with Roast’s
head cook, Lawrence Keogh.

As a British airline passionate about food,
we are delighted to embrace Roast’s food
development philosophy. Using British
ingredients wherever we can, placing
emphasis on the sourcing and provenance
of products, we intend to explore dishes
and recipes that also highlight seasonality.

From succulent spit roasts and deeply
flavoured puddings cooked over days,
to organically grown salad leaves that have
real taste, British cooking can rightly take
its place on the international stage.

We have the great pleasure of taking this
philosophy and bringing it to life for you
to enjoy onboard today.
