Meal Service UK-USA VS,BA,UA & AA

Mon Aug 26, 2002 3:04 pm


I was just looking at the web site and with the Virgin Atlantic photos it states that they service a sandwich and some cake on there
flights from the UK to the east coast. I thought that this was the second
meal but haveing read a trip report I am not so sure.

So my question is has Virgin started a one meal service on there flights and its it now just a sandwich style meal a bit like BA's all day deli.

Also are BA, UA and AA now doing the same?

I know that the early 8.45 flight to New York by BA serves a light brunch style meal and snack later on it the flight. AA serve a full meal and a snack on there early morning flights out of London.

AA are still the best out of London

I think AA serves snack mixes of some sort on short haul flights under 3 hours. At least my routes after Sept 11 have done that.

The sandwich and cake is the second service on VS. There is a dinner service beforehand.

In July I had a meal and a snack in both directions on BA, out at 1330 to JFK back on the daytime 0900 departure from JFK.

With AA we got two meals in both directions but we were fluying to West coast so the flights were longer.
