More British Airways routes will soon get Do&Co catering.
This is a significant upgrade since Do&Co is considered the most prestigious airline catering company in the world. This new contract also includes Iberia’s long-haul catering.
Of course, a change in supplier is a big undertaking. If you are driving to Terminal 4 at Heathrow you will see the new Do&Co facility currently being constructed. It is huge – 172,000 square feet to be precise.
British Airways is currently switching over route by route, using Do&Co’s existing capacity. BA does not like to publicly state which routes have the new catering since that necessarily puts off customers flying elsewhere. We have therefore been relying on word on the street and our own in-flight experiences!
A BA employee got in touch this week with the latest position as he understood it:
Do&Co food has already been launched on routes to New York, Chicago, Tokyo (both airports), Pittsburgh, Charleston, Amman, Beirut, Cairo, Moscow (both airports), Tel Aviv and Hong Kong.
From the 29th May:
Lagos and Abuja
From 1st June:
From 2nd June:
Islamabad (this is a new route starting 2nd June)
The full roll out should be completed by March 2020.
