Fortnum and Mason in Terminal 5 launches ‘eat on board’ ‘hamperling’

Following the lead of Gordon Ramsay’s Plane Food, the new Fortnum & Mason restaurant in Terminal 5 has launched a range of ‘eat on board’ takeaway hamperlings.  You can now feel free to downgrade from Club Europe to Euro Traveller, reinvesting part of your saving into one of these!

To quote:

Adventurers and explorers alike will be able to choose from a range of 5 expertly designed aeroplane menus, to take on-board for their journeys. These feature some of Fortnum’s best-loved produce from the Food Hall including: Smoked Salmon; Lincolnshire Poacher; York Ham; Game Terrine; Rare Roast Glenarm Salt-Aged Beef and Fortnum’s Oscietra Caviar.

Each Hamperling is packaged in an aeroplane-friendly plate format and comes with its own Fortnum & Mason cutlery set and cool bag in signature eau-de-nil, to ensure that all travellers are now able to dine on the plane in style and ease.

The prices range from £15 to £50.  The £50 version is designed for two to share and includes 10g of F&M Oscietra caviar!

    Just where is F&M in T5 & how far from the BA lounge? I never have enough time to shop in T5. As I travel to/via U.K. Once or twice a year, get all my TP via BA & oneworld. Now achieved tier I value the fast immigration (as non EU passport), the extra luggage allowance, check in & lounge. I always seem to go to uk with over 40 kg & return the same with uk products, my contribution to the local economy. Never enough weighs. Yes do fly CW in Europe for TP. Maybe 1 year will be able to achieve Gold!
