When flying from London to Dublin on British Airways in Club Europe, you always get a meal. This is much better than in the United States, where you might get a cookie in First Class on flights after 8pm, which to me, is just not good enough.
Since I like to eat on board a flight, having a guaranteed meal is a big plus for me. Here’s a look at a typical one hour flight from London to Dublin in business class on BA.
BA826 – London Heathrow to Dublin (LHR-DUB)
29 June 2019
Airbus A320-200 – G-EUYX
Seat: Club Europe 2A
Departure: 20:35 Arrival: 21:55
After five hours spent waiting around in the Galleries Club lounges, I went down to the gate before boarding commenced. It was pleasantly divided up for the group boarding process.
Soon enough it was time to board and I was swiftly in my seat. Being an older aircraft, it still has the middle seat tray, something that adds a touch of class to the entire experience.
London to Dublin – Time To Eat!
Once everyone was on board, we received the safety demonstration and headed into the air. Quite quickly, since it’s only an hour in flight at best, the crew were handing out hot towels and getting on with the meal service.
There is a small starter, the main plate and a delicious dessert of some kind on offer. Bread is offered from the basket and I had Champagne as my drink of choice.
Naturally I ate everything in front of me. The meals are always delicious and quite enough food for such a short sector. For the rest of the flight, I enjoyed the views, before we landed in Dublin on time.
Club Europe attracts a price premium over standard tickets, usually in excess of €100. Considering this gives you lounge access, two 32kg bags, plus all the on board amenities, it can be quite cost effective.
A little treat to start or end a trip is worthwhile to me, as a flight passes pleasantly quickly when you’re being served non-stop. As far as I am concerned, British Airways have got it right here.
