Centenary: British Airways Brings New Gourmet Menus on Board

July 30, 2019


As part of its centenary celebrations, British Airways has launched new onboard gourmet menus for customers travelling with the airline throughout August which is the airline’s birthday month. 


The new menus, which feature great British flavours, will be available in every cabin on all of the airline’s long-haul flights, allowing customers to enjoy a dish designed by Michelin-starred Tom Kerridge.


The airline’s chefs and Tom Kerridge have worked closely to ensure the dishes not only showcase culinary expertise, but also work well at altitude.  The menu includes a variety of fresh seasonal ingredients, such as wild garlic and asparagus, with a focus on British provenance.

The menus include:


  • Loch Fyne smoked salmon tartare with smoked mayonnaise, seeded cracker and quail egg

  • Fillet of halibut with roasted cucumber, girolle mushrooms, salad cream, accompanied by a classic Caesar Salad with sourdough croutons and pickled anchovies
