Business is back on British Airways.
As of October 28, 2022, passengers flying Club World (long-haul business class) with the British flag carrier will get to experience the full Club World service that was last seen before the pandemic.
“It’s incredibly important that when we brought our full service back, it exceeded our customers’ expectations,” said Sajida Ismail, Head of Onboard Experience at British Airways. “We have taken time to ensure that we are offering a premium brasserie-style dining experience that not only tastes good, but one that our crew feel confident in delivering.”
Here’s what you can expect from the return of British Airways’ full business experience.
Full-service Returns to Club World
The main thing to change with the resumption of full service in BA’s Club World cabins will be the serving of each course individually rather than passengers receiving their whole meal on 1 tray at the same time.
As a result, warm starters and desserts will be served once again. With the cold of winter looming, passengers can look forward to new seasonal options such as artichoke and parmesan soup, the classic British cottage pie, and apple strudel or chocolate fondant for dessert.
In addition to traditional British fare, regional destination-inspired dishes will be readily available, such as mahi-mahi on Caribbean flights, chicken dum biryani on flights to the U.K. from India, and king prawn machbous on flights from the Middle East.
Hot Tip: If you’re booking a business class ticket with British Airways, be sure to do your research to make sure you’re flying an aircraft fitted with the airline’s gorgeous Club Suite rather than its far inferior Club World cabin and seats.
“We have had such great feedback from the recent introduction of new menus across our First, World Traveller Plus, World Traveller and Club Europe cabins and we know our new Club World menus won’t disappoint,” added Ms. Ismail.
The new menu additions that come hand-in-hand with British Airways’ Club World full-service resumption have been carefully curated with a focus on British-sourced ingredients from local producers.
And for those passengers who’d rather maximize sleep on evening flights, they’ll have the option of requesting a 1-tray service to speed things up.
After over 2.5 years, British Airways is finally restoring its long-haul business class service to how it was before the pandemic.
Nothing says British Airways more than a class cottage pie, right?
