News in brief:
Virgin East Coast four day sale
Virgin East Coast is running a short sale until Thursday night. The discount is apparently a full 50% on all sale tickets, although the deals cannot be combined with any railcards you hold.
The sale is valid for travel between 5th September and 4th November but excluding half term week of 21st to 30th October.
My very positive review of the new food offering in First Class on East Coast is here. A review of the refurbished First Class lounge at Kings Cross will follow later this week.
HFP in the Daily Mail
The Daily Mail ran an online story yesterday about the recent cutbacks to the British Airways food and drink offering. My recent articles on the topic were referenced as you can read here.
Similar stories have appeared elsewhere in recent days which cannot make pleasant reading for BA bosses.
An impressive meal in Club Europe
Ironically, at the same time as the Daily Mail was using my articles as the basis for a piece criticising BA cuts, I had one of my best Club Europe meals in a long time.
The picture above is a very decent cod and mash dish I got on the way down to Spain on Saturday. I had no complaints at all. There even a salad alternative for anyone who didn’t want a hot meal. BA did well here.
