Savor the Season: Special In-Flight Menu Celebrations

Savor the special holiday-themed meals available on certain flights for a limited time! From February 10th to 13th in 2024, if you’re flying between Singapore, Hong Kong, and London, you get the chance to enjoy these unique dishes. The celebration continues on trips from Beijing to London, which will feature the festive menu from February 13th to 18th. Plus, you can experience these delights from February 13th to 16th on your journeys from Shanghai to London. Don’t miss out on these exclusive airborne dining experiences!

Gourmet Dining Across the Cabins

Celebrate the Lunar New Year with British Airways and enjoy a journey filled with rich flavors and traditions.

  • If you’re flying First Class, prepare for a gourmet treat with a beef fillet seasoned with bold black pepper. It comes with broccolini spiced with a special Chinese seven-spice mix.
  • In Club World (business class) the menu features spicy Kung Pao prawns, a dish that was once exclusive to royalty in China.
  • First and Club World travelers will end their meal with a sweet note: a white chocolate and tangerine mousse. The tangerine is a nod to Chinese culture, where it’s seen as a lucky fruit, like a symbol for gold, wishing you prosperity for the year to come.
  • Guests in World Traveller Plus (premium economy) and World Traveller (economy) will be part of the New Year festivities with a taste of traditional Huaiyang cuisine. The highlight is Lion’s Head meatballs, a tender pork dish in oyster sauce that’s not only tasty but also meaningful. Its shape is inspired by a lion’s head, a symbol for family togetherness.

Fly to Asia with British Airways this Lunar New Year and start your trip in style, blending luxury with cherished cultural practices. Whether it’s a vacation or a business trip, the celebrations begin as soon as you’re on board!
