British Airways is rolling out its new, much improved catering from Do&Co to more long-haul routes.
I feel a bit sorry for British Airways sometimes. They are making some genuine improvements to Club World, with the new seat and the move to the world’s most prestigious airline catering company, but they don’t want to talk about them.
You can’t put out a list saying ‘these routes now have good food on them’, because it will start hitting business on other routes. Similarly the launch of Club Suite was fairly subdued by BA PR standards because they know most people won’t be flying it for a couple of years at best.
Anyway …. if you are travelling on the old BMI mid-haul routes (Amman etc) from next week, as well as Tokyo, Osaka, Charleston (launching 4th April) and Pittsburgh (launching 2nd April) you should get the superior Do&Co food.
If any BA staffer does have a list of all of the Do&Co routes currently in operation I’m happy to see it.
