BA Club World kids meal

  • alex_reuben

    Flying to NY on BA175 next week with 2 kids (8&9). If I order a kids meal do you get the same kids meal that they serve in world traveller or is it a better meal given the fact it’s club world? If anyone has any examples of the food / photos would be grateful.


    sorry, can’t help with that question, but our 5yo daughter seems to like eating the adult meal in club so would be offended if we were to give her an inferior product.


    I recall when my son was that age he got chicken nuggets and a variety of snack/pudding items. I don’t think it varies too much between cabins and there was certainly plenty of it. It depends whether your kids would prefer that or there’s a decent chance of them eating the adult meal – nut remember you still can’t pre-select these at the moment so you may be stuck with something they don’t like.
    We always travel armed with substantial quantities of snacks and drinks as well!


    CW/CS gets a different meal to PE but… Cannot comment on JFK/EWR but would imagine they come from the same caterer that supplied our two kids meals outbound to MLE. Both were unfit for human consumption. Fusilli pesto salad way too al dente (exacerbated by cabin’s cold air) & main’s meatballs were low quality and of course burnt. We regretted not to have bought some Pret to bring onboard.

    Immediately cancelled kids meals for the inbound on arrival, and kids happily ate the adult meals on their way back.

    I’d agree that the kids meals are markedly inferior quality. Unless they are exceptionally fussy (i.e. they will only eat chicken nuggets and chips) they are likely to get better offering with an adult meal. They get 3 courses with a choice of main and some cheese too, so are certain to find enough they’ll eat to sustain life within all that. Our kids at are roughly the same age and are happy with the adult meals (although they’ve eaten – or rather they’ve quite justifiably refused to eat – some particularly rank economy meals on Qantas domestic in their time, so have had their expectations of aeroplane food adjusted downwards already 😀 😀 ).


    Raiding the Club Kitchen is a good distraction on a long flight – though these days it seems to get denuded by a swarm of locusts as soon as it’s filled!


    agree with others, I was having the same concerns with my two last summer, they are the same ages as yours. I couldn’t find any details of what they might get if they ordered a kids meal other than references to meatballs and pasta. They both declared they wanted the adult meal, and although they picked at it a bit, there was still plenty to eat between the three courses and the CW kitchen. They’d also been grazing in the lounge for a while before we boarded so weren’t particularly hungry anyway. I’d say get adult then at least they get a choice.


    Thank you all, adult meal it is!
