BA improves premium economy


British Airways is making improvements to its premium economy cabin, World Traveller Plus, as part of the airline’s $8.4 billion investment plan.

Changes to the cabin, which will be rolled out over the coming months, will include new furnishings, an enhanced service and an improved dining experience. 

The new menus will be available from 1 February and feature a third main meal option and 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.

From the Northern Hemisphere spring season, the airline will introduce new amenity kits, quilts and pillows.

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
