News in brief:
British Airways adds additional Corfu service for Summer 2016
British Airways is increasing Corfu services for the coming Summer. The existing six flights per week will be increased to seven.
The new flight will depart and leave on Tuesdays, starting on 3rd May.
If you struggled to find Avios seats to Corfu for the Summer, you may want to look again. BA will have made the standard two Club Europe and four Euro Traveller seats available for redemption on these new services.
Fortnum and Mason launches ‘eat on board’ hampers
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.
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.
