BA celebrates Thanksgiving across flights and lounges

British Airways has introduced a range of Thanksgiving-inspired dishes for passengers travelling across its network.

On November 23, British Airways will be celebrating Thanksgiving on all long-haul flights to and from the US. Passengers across all cabins will have the choice of a festive main course and dessert. 

Those travelling in First and Club World will be able to enjoy a traditional turkey roast with all the trimmings, followed by either a classic pumpkin pie featuring nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger spices, then a pumpkin and walnut cake or a pumpkin-flavoured cheesecake.

Passengers in World Traveller Plus and World Traveller will also be served a traditional turkey roast followed by the option of a pumpkin pie, gingerbread mousse or a spiced pumpkin and white chocolate mousse, offering the perfect balance of sweetness and spice.

British Airways will also be adding a range of special treats across all its lounges at London Heathrow. For Thanksgiving, a variety of dishes will be on offer, including pumpkin and butternut squash soup and pecan pie in its Concorde Room, and turkey and smoked ham pie in its First and Club lounges, all available on November 23.   

In other food and beverage-related news, the airline has introduced new World Traveller main courses and will be refreshing its second service later this month, including new hot light bite breakfast options on all shorter inbound flights from the US to London Heathrow and London Gatwick. It has also introduced Johnnie Walker Blue Label XOrdinaire, a luxury icon of blended Scotch whisky to its First cabin, specially chosen by the airline’s Master of Wine.
