British Airways gets boxed in

British Airways will start serving box meals in all classes from tomorrow (June 16).

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, the airline has unveiled temporary adjustments to its onboard catering while it works for “a more permanent with its catering suppliers”.

The boxed meals are designed minimise interactions between customers and crew and included pre-prepared meal boxes for long-haul, Business and First passengers. At the premium end the boxes include a salad, hot entrée or sandwich, served with a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
On short-haul routes, passengers receive a boxed salad or sandwich with a selection of beverages.

The meal boxes prepared by DO & CO which, since May 2020, provide catering for all BA long-haul flights at London Heathrow, and when flights resume at London City and London Gatwick, the meal service should be broadly similar. DO & CO has also won a tender to cater for BA flights at airports in North America.
