Meals

Long-haul

If your flight's more than 7 hours, you'll need more than a limp sandwich to keep you going. That's why our long-haul flights come with a delcious James Martin meal.

Tasty menus for everyone

Although they're all free - make sure you pre-book children's meals or vegetarian, vegan, diabetic and gluten-intolerant menus before you fly. Otherwise you'll get our classic menu, which might not suit you.

Have a severe allergy?

Get in touch with our special assistance team, who can give you more information and make the crew aware of your needs.

Onboard, we don't serve nuts and ask other passengers not to eat them, just to be safe.

Flying to the US?
