Day and night flights

tea and cakes

We've customised our day and night flights with selected services and menus, to make your journey as comfortable and fulfilling in every way possible.

Night Flights

On our shorter night flights from destinations like New York and Boston, you’ve probably already dined in our Clubhouse and would rather focus on sleep. Our specially created express or supper menus still offer a delicious selection of food to enjoy on board, with faster service so you can really maximise your sleep time.


Day Flights

If you’re travelling with us on selected day flights, like our London Heathrow to West Coast USA services, after dessert, you’ll enjoy a visit from our fabulous new cheese trolley. Choose from a delicious selection of cheese, biscuits, fruit and chutneys, and wash them down with a glass of port. On shorter nighttime services, you can still enjoy a specially prepared cheese plate instead of dessert.


Afternoon Tea

On certain flights where we serve afternoon tea, the new afternoon tea trolley is our pièce de résistance, and it really is a sight to behold. We’ve brought a truly British tradition on board, complete with cake stands, finger sandwiches, a delicious selection of cakes, and scones with jam and clotted cream.

We’ll fill your very own stylish mini cake stand with whatever you choose, served with fresh cafetiere coffee or a selection of fine teas.


Customisable English Breakfast

If you’re on a flight where we offer a Full English Breakfast, this is now completely customisable, so we’ll make your breakfast to your requirements. And because of the way it’s prepared, we can now offer completely meat free Vegetarian English Breakfasts too.


Express Breakfast

On selected flights where sleep is a priority, we now offer an Express Breakfast. If you’re an early riser, there’s a tasty selection of cereals, bagels and bacon sandwiches. If you’d prefer to sleep in, we’ll offer you a choice of cold items that you can enjoy right up until we land.


Selected Flights

Our Graze menu, the cheese and port trolley, afternoon tea trolley, Full English Breakfast and our Express Breakfast options are only available on selected flights. Depending on the time of day and length of your flight, you’ll be offered afternoon tea, breakfast, express breakfast or our Graze menu as a second meal before we land. The best way to discover exactly which services are available on your flight is in your Upper Class menu.
