BA said to be launching 'dine when you like'

British Airways is reportedly introducing a 'dine when you like' option when it launches its new Club World cabin.

According to a memo seen by Head for Points, the frequent-flyer website, all Club World cabin crew are being called in for a two-day training session on new Club World.

Central to the changes is a new role of 'Club World galley lead', to oversee a new 'dine when you like' service.

The report says that, in order to ensure adequate cover during the training, the airline is temporarily increasing the number of 'back-to-back' trips crew may be asked to undertake from two to three in any 56-day period.

It is asking Club World-certified Mixed Fleet and Worldwide crew to work together on the same aircraft.

In a statement, BA said: "We are always reviewing the service for our customers but we don't comment on rumour or speculation."

  • Unpleasant BA

    BA (Bloody Awful) It's not just the food on British Airways, the worlds most unpleasant airline. I travelled on their Silver Economy from Muscat and after enduring a lengthy in-transit security screen at Heathrow T5 popped in to the lounge for a Muffin. Heading off the Manchester shuttle, the G4S "security" gate pass checker asked "where do you think you're going?" Somewhat surprised, I replied, hopefully, "Manchester"? He then turned me back (apparently I was on the wrong shuttle) and I was asked to pay GBP 40 for re-ticketing my flight mid journey!!! I'm not sure that this is even legal, but in any case I refused to pay, took my bags from the terminal and caught a train home. I'll never use BA ever again, and I just love the service on Emirates as a frequent flyer. In fact my next assignment was Nigeria, and the service from Virgin Atlantic made the BA people look embarrassingly abject. That was way back in 2014 but make sure you don't have a credit card or cash when (if) you choose BA so they can't ransom you.
