Surprisingly Yummy Airline Meals: British Airways' Filet Mignon

October 9, 2012 at 12:20 PM | by | ()

We have all had a terrible meal on a flight before. In fact, we have shown you some of the sadder trays slid in front of us. With this new series of amazing airline meals, we can revel in the airline culinary delights and give kudos to the airlines that got it right.

British Airways has put forth a lot of effort to revamp their service and reputation lately, even completely overhauling their menus to include an homage to British-y home classics.

On a Club World—BA speak for business class—flight from Chicago O'Hare to London, our in-flight menu read like a 5-star restaurant's, with four different entree choices. We eventually settled on red meat and went for the filet mignon with black peppercorn sauce and weren't disappointed. A generous portion of beef with an even more generous portion of broad beans and roasted potatoes meant we weren't left hungry for the rest of the flight.

Since it was absolutely delicious, the starter can't go without mention. The appetizer consisted of a lobster salad with a mango relish side-by-side with a large romaine salad with balsamic vinaigrette. While we aren't ones to go for rich food and red meat while flying long-haul, it would be hard to pass up this one in the future.

If you've had an airline meal you just need to rave about, let us know via email here. We would love to hear about them and then, ultimately, add them to our airline bucket-list.

It has always been a bit confusing to what to have during flying , if it gets heavy then? By the way thanks to British Airways for a perfect taste. If happen to get on the fly in this airline, I'd undoubtedly go for this.
