British Airways is to upgrade its premium economy cabin, World Traveller Plus, in the coming months as part of a wider £6.5 billion-pound five-year investment plan.
According to Carolina Martinoli, British Airways’ director of brand and customer experience, customers will see a real change to the cabin.
From the beginning of February, the airline is introducing new dining options, including a third meal choice for their main course, as well as a more substantial hot second meal later in the flight.
Launch menus, will include braised British beef with roast new potatoes, onion soubise and bourguignon sauce, roasted guinea fowl with braised red cabbage, green beans, roast potato and mustard and chive jus and rigatoni pasta in a creamy garlic and herb sauce with leek, pumpkin and baby spinach.
Customers travelling in World Traveller Plus have the ability to pre-order their main meal up to 24 hours before departure, guaranteeing their first choice for their main meal.
The airline is also be investing in its World Traveller Plus amenities, with new amenity kits, quilts and pillows to be introduced in the spring.
Last year British Airways unveiled a new World Traveller Plus seat at Gatwick. The seat features a 50% larger entertainment screen, as well as a six-way adjustable leg, foot and headrest to suit customers of all heights.
The seat will feature on the airline’s A350 aircraft, when it arrives later this year.
