When in the UK you could soon be enjoying some great British Airways food at home.
British Airways premium meal sets
British Airways has teamed up with catering partner DO & CO and food delivery service Feast Box to give people the opportunity to enjoy a great British Airways meal from the comfort of their own home.
With this initiative, British Airways has developed a limited-edition cook-to-home meal set that reflects the British Airways premium dining experience.
Each meal set includes a four-course menu, with customers choosing from their kits of vegetarian dishes, fish dishes, and meat dishes. Note that these are not meals that you simply put in the microwave. Customers prepare meals at home as the kit includes a recipe sheet and an information card in the form of a passport.
The kits can be ordered from today and delivery will start next week. Those who order will receive a free box from Feast Box’s regular menu, as well as a voucher for a 10% discount on a British Airways flight.
Hamish McVey, Head of Brands and Marketing at British Airways, describes it this way:
“We hope that this exclusive first experience will allow our customers who lack flying to enjoy a fantastic home dining experience. British Airways, Feast Box and DO & CO take great pride in serving the highest quality international cuisine, and while it looks a little different when delivered to a customer’s door than at 38,000 feet, we hope that it will be just as exciting. “
What’s on the menu?
There are currently four different menus to choose from:
- Each kit consists of four courses and serves two people – there is a starter, main course, cheese board and dessert
- There really are two different starters and two different main courses, which is why there are four options in total so you can choose which combination you want
- Fortunately, the food appears to be British Airways’ premier pre-pandemic catering rather than what is currently being served
- Prices below include taxes, but do not include shipping
For vegetarians, you can order a whole wheat salad as a starter and handmade agnolotti as a main course, which costs £ 80 and has a cook time of 55 minutes.
Alternatively, you can order smoked salmon as a starter and handmade agnolotti as a main course, which costs £ 80 and takes 45 minutes to cook.
You can also order smoked salmon as a starter and beef cheeks as a main course, which costs £ 100 and takes 50 minutes to cook.
You can also order a whole wheat salad as a starter and beef cheek as a main course which costs £ 100 and has a cook time of 60 minutes.
Those in the UK can now order a British Airways meal set to enjoy at home. We’ve seen airlines get creative during the pandemic, even though British Airways isn’t the first airline to introduce world-class meals for the home. Singapore Airlines had a similar concept a while back, although it was way more expensive and also a lot more (including caviar and champagne!).
For Avgeeks in the UK, this could make a fun dinner plan for an evening. One consideration is that this is likely to be primarily for people who enjoy cooking, as there is still a lot of prep time and work involved.
Is anyone in the UK planning to try their hand at British Airways’ world class catering? 😉
