10am update: First pictures of the new Club Europe breakfast

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

You can’t say we’re not on top of things here.  It’s only 10am and we already have some photographs of the new Club Europe breakfast.  Remember that the new ‘improved’ food service launches today.  Full details of the changes are in this article.

Thanks to Peter for sending this so promptly.  He notes:

“The sugar and the ‘refreshing towel’ have gone from the tray.  The cold meat plate has gone as an alternative to the traditional breakfast.  The alternative now is a Hot Vegetarian Breakfast.”

The portion size looks good.  Peter didn’t mention the taste but my experience of airline croissants is that they are generally appalling. That isn’t BA’s fault – they just don’t travel well.

“The Club World mug and plate are being used”, as predicted.  The upside here is that your coffee should now stay warm – a low wide cup, as used before, is not the best thing to use if you want to keep a hot drink hot.

I’m sure there will be more on this topic once the working week starts tomorrow.

    Photo of “miniature” ploughman’s sent from TGL to LHR today. On the way out it was a smaller tray; I didn’t understand why no plate for my scone; and then I did. I agree it’s not “afternoon tea” without a scone.

      No scone !! They really will have to change their name soon. Fewer & fewer aspects are British 🙁

    I’d like to have seen black pudding make an appearance if it was going to tempt me away from breakfasting in the Galleries First !
