British Airways' Bacon Roll is Better Than All the American Airlines Croissants in the World
If you read Jaunted regularly, you'll be well aware of our obsession with airline food. What you're served onboard may cost or it may be complimentary; it could be three courses or a baggie of Biscoffswhatever the case it's either going to go totally well or totally to hell. Typically it's the latter we focus on (here's a whole gallery if you're curious of the worst), but lately there's been something of a renaissance in airline cuisine and we're experiencing it dish by dish.
Dishes that stick out in our mind are: a Cathay Pacific steak, the $8 Continental cheeseburger and the recent discovery of Virgin Atlantic's non-yucky full English breakfast.
Now we're adding one more to the list of positive surprises, but not because it was big and tasty, but because we got it at all: British Airways' egg mayo bacon roll. The flight was a 40-minute nothing. We even had to hope a bus from the gate to the plane, which usually makes us expect zippo in terms of in-flight service. Alas! A package of orange juice and the aforementioned roll arrived, followed by a choice of tea, coffee or more juices. Just eating it took up a quarter of the flight time, and that is by no means a complaint.
A for effort, British Airways!
