    85 years of in-flight meals, let's hope that BA and the others are not back-tracking, but moving forward with great food for all passengers who love to fly! We do!:)

    I was wondering that, too.

    a drink made by boiling pieces of lean beef: often given to invalids to stimulate the appetite

    So what's BA serving nowadays on the LHR-CDG route?

    Fluid beef... Delicious ;)

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bovril

    Probably ensures that no French pax ever fly on BA on that route.

    Bovril accompanied by a greasy Scotch pie is rather delicious....and is traditional fare at a football match in Scotland. Only when mixed with ten pints of beer and a few Vodkas does it become vomit inducing.
