Fly Club World to enhance your trip before you even reach your destination, be it Malaga or the Grand Palace in Hurghada. Here are five things that you will love the most:
1. Flavourful, Magnificent Meals
Aeroplane food is frequently given a bad wrap (excuse our pun) – and there is a very good reason for that. After all, aircraft galleys are not the best best place to produce gourmet cuisine. It has a tendency to be very unappetising and bland. Another thing that doesn’t help is that our taste buds, along with our nasal passage, experience changes due to the high altitudes as well as low humidity contained in recirculated air that changes our sense of smell and taste. Of course, we cannot blame everything for travelling at a height of 35,000 feet.
A Club World upgrade will allow you to enjoy meticulously created three-course menus made from locally-sourced, high-quality ingredients that draw their inspiration from the freshest seasonal produce available, and presented to you as an elegant feast for all of your senses to enjoy.
Club World also caters to a wide range of dietary preferences and intolerances, with balanced choices provided including vegan and gluten-free options.
Even how your meals are served have been completed re-thought. You are free to choose from a generous selection of cheese plates, desserts, and starter. Also, all of the china and glassware have been given a modern and stylish new look. The gorgeous new table settings and new food selections are available as of late 2018 on all routes from London Heathrow and by early 2019 on all routes from London Gatwick.
2. Enjoy a Cosy, Homey Feeling Up in the Air
The Club Kitchen is offered by British Airways. This space is set aside for travellers to help themselves to a wide range of naughty, indulgent treats along with healthy snacks. If you are feeling a bit out of sorts, either before or after eating a meal, wander over to the gallery where you will find salads, fresh fruits, sandwiches, branded crisps, Cadbury’s chocolate, and retro sweets.
There is also a selection of infusions and Twinings tea that are available ranging from traditional Earl Grey and English Breakfast tea to refreshing peppermint infusions and green tea, along with Union Hand-Roasted Coffee, which is a new blend created by coffee artisans.
3. “Wine is Bottled Poetry…”
According to Robert Louis Stevenson, the above is true – and the wine expert at British Airways agrees, having curated an amazing wine list to either enjoy in its own right as well as to complement the menu – both New World and Old World wines are represented.
Along with the impressive wine list, there is also a selection of Champagnes, mixers, and premium branded spirits – including aperitifs, Reserve whisky from Glenlivet Master Distiller, Ciroc vodka, Fever Free tonic, and Tanqueray gin.
4. Enjoy a Restful, Peaceful Sleep
Sweet dreams await you. British Airways understands how important sleep is, so their Club World cabins have been designed as a place where you can truly enjoy a peaceful and relaxing sleep.
It all starts with your spacious seat that converts into a completely flat comfortable bed. In addition, the bedding they have added ticks every box. British Airways, in its quest to pay attention to all of the finest details, has partnered with The White Company – a luxury homeware brand – so that all passengers have a beautifully soft blanket; a full-sized fluffy luxury pillow; a cosy duvet, and a quilted mattress topper – which can all be used in whatever combination suits you the best. The linens are pure cotton 200-thread-count to provide a thoroughly hypoallergenic and comfortable sleeping experience.
5. A Sophisticated, Yet Relaxing Ambience
The Club World cabins feature low lighting to allow passengers to sleep and relax. Also, service is attentive without being invasive – especially on long haul flights, the crew avoids disturbing passengers as much as possible by noting detailed individual preferences early on to suit your needs and provide you with a nuanced service.
If you choose to not sleep there is a wide range of entertainment options that are available, via the noise-cancelling headphones and flat-screen display, including audiobooks, games, music, television programmes, and on-demand films.
